There’s still a year before J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter play hits London’s West End. And that just means there’s still a year for fans to speculate about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Rowling’s been very adamant that the play is not a prequel.(Though the Potter spinoff film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a prequel.)
