Dans un monde de plus en plus inquiétant, Harry se prépare à retrouver Ron et Hermione. Bientôt, ce sera la rentrée à Poudlard, avec les autres étudiants de sixième année.

Rowling révèle dans ce sixième tome la fascinante complexité de l'univers qu'elle a créé, et met en place tous les ressorts du dénouement.

Quand le magizoologiste Norbert Dragonneau arrive à New York, il ne compte y faire qu'une brève escale. Mais sa valise magique est égarée et certains des animaux fantastiques qu'elle contient s'échappent dans la ville. Les ennuis commencent alors... pour tout le monde. Inspiré par le manuel de la Bibliothèque de Poudlard signé Norbert Dragonneau, Les Animaux fantastiques : le texte du film est le premier scénario écrit par J. K. Rowling, auteur de la saga Harry Potter, phénomène littéraire et best-seller mondial universellement salué. Éclatante d'imagination et racontée de main de maître, cette aventure épique abrite une remarquable galerie de personnages et de créatures magiques. Que l'on soit déjà fan, ou nouveau dans le Monde des Sorciers, cet ouvrage complètera parfaitement la bibliothèque de tout lecteur ou amoureux du film. Le film Les Animaux fantastiques est sorti en salles le 16 novembre 2016.
Le précédent film Les Animaux fantastiques se terminait sur la capture du puissant mage noir Gellert Grindelwald à New York grâce à Norbert Dragonneau. Mais, mettant sa menace à exécution, Grindelwald s'échappe de prison et s'attèle à recruter des partisans, dont la plupart ignorent sa réelle intention : faire régner les sorciers de sang pur sur les êtres non-magiques.
Afin de contrecarrer les plans de Grindelwald, Albus Dumbledore fait appel à Norbert, son ancien élève à Poudlard, qui accepte de lui venir en aide, loin d'imaginer les dangers qui l'attendent. Dans ce monde des sorciers de plus en plus divisé, l'amour et la loyauté sont mis à l'épreuve, les amitiés les plus sincères et les liens familiaux ne sont pas épargnés.
Le texte de ce deuxième film écrit par J.K. Rowling est illustré par les splendides dessins au trait de MinaLima. On y apprend plus sur les événements antérieurs qui ont façonné le monde des sorciers, et on y trouve de nombreux liens avec la saga Harry Potter, qui réjouiront les fans des livres comme des films.
"Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H'." Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!
"'There is a plot, Harry Potter. A plot to make most terrible things happen at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this year.'" Harry Potter's summer has included the worst birthday ever, doomy warnings from a house-elf called Dobby, and rescue from the Dursleys by his friend Ron Weasley in a magical flying car! Back at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for his second year, Harry hears strange whispers echo through empty corridors - and then the attacks start. Students are found as though turned to stone... Dobby's sinister predictions seem to be coming true.
"'Give me Harry Potter,' said Voldemort's voice, 'and none shall be harmed. Give me Harry Potter, and I shall leave the school untouched. Give me Harry Potter, and you will be rewarded.'" As he climbs into the sidecar of Hagrid's motorbike and takes to the skies, leaving Privet Drive for the last time, Harry Potter knows that Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters are not far behind. The protective charm that has kept Harry safe until now is broken, but he cannot keep hiding. The Dark Lord is breathing fear into everything Harry loves and to stop him Harry will have to find and destroy the remaining Horcruxes. The final battle must begin - Harry must stand and face his enemy...
"'Welcome to the Knight Bus, emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard. Just stick out your wand hand, step on board and we can take you anywhere you want to go.'" When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss...
"'You are sharing the Dark Lord's thoughts and emotions. The Headmaster thinks it inadvisable for this to continue. He wishes me to teach you how to close your mind to the Dark Lord.'" Dark times have come to Hogwarts. After the Dementors' attack on his cousin Dudley, Harry Potter knows that Voldemort will stop at nothing to find him. There are many who deny the Dark Lord's return, but Harry is not alone: a secret order gathers at Grimmauld Place to fight against the Dark forces. Harry must allow Professor Snape to teach him how to protect himself from Voldemort's savage assaults on his mind. But they are growing stronger by the day and Harry is running out of time...
"There it was, hanging in the sky above the school: the blazing green skull with a serpent tongue, the mark Death Eaters left behind whenever they had entered a building... wherever they had murdered..." When Dumbledore arrives at Privet Drive one summer night to collect Harry Potter, his wand hand is blackened and shrivelled, but he does not reveal why. Secrets and suspicion are spreading through the wizarding world, and Hogwarts itself is not safe. Harry is convinced that Malfoy bears the Dark Mark: there is a Death Eater amongst them. Harry will need powerful magic and true friends as he explores Voldemort's darkest secrets, and Dumbledore prepares him to face his destiny...
"'There will be three tasks, spaced throughout the school year, and they will test the champions in many different ways ... their magical prowess - their daring - their powers of deduction - and, of course, their ability to cope with danger.'" The Triwizard Tournament is to be held at Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter - but that doesn't stop Harry dreaming that he will win the competition. Then at Hallowe'en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out. He will face death-defying tasks, dragons and Dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through - alive!
The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
The playscript for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was originally released as a 'special rehearsal edition' alongside the opening of Jack Thorne's play in London's West End in summer 2016.

This edition also includes useful background information including the Potter family tree and a timeline of events from the Wizarding World prior to the beginning of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Minerva era la dea romana della guerra e della saggezza. William McGonagall è invece considerato il peggior poeta della storia britannica. C'era qualcosa d'irresistibile nel suo cognome, e nell'idea che una donna così intelligente potesse essere una lontana parente di quel poeta un po' ridicolo. - J.K.
