During the London premiere of the stage production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, J.K. Rowling revealed that she's finally good and done with expanding the Potterverse.

The first seven Potter books sold over 450 million copies worldwide, and the new one is predicted to be the biggest selling book this year. It happens in different times, so it's really helpful if you know all the other books and characters quite well (I do - and so does any other true Harry Potter fan).

"I started reading "Harry Potter" in fifth grade", she said.

About 50 witches and wizards attended the midnight release party at pages for the newest addition to the Harry Potter series: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child". The play will be running until at least December 2017.

According to Reuters, the "Harry Potter" author said that the play is the last of the series, and marks the end of the boy wizard's journey.

Rowling, who is the film's screenwriter, confirmed on Twitter that "Fantastic Beasts" will be a movie trilogy.

"It's the most extraordinary fandom, so I'm not surprised", the best-selling author said.

Jamie Parker portrays Harry Potter 19 years after the events of the "Deathly Hallows" story.

Harry Potter fans arrived in cloaks and wands in hand.

Kostick said she thought she was a Harry Potter fan, that is until she met some "Potter-heads".

During previous releases, I waited with my son in long mall lines to buy the latest book.

"It chimed perfectly with the material I had about the next generation and I could see it would work perfectly", Rowling added.
