Just when we thought we'd seen the last of the Boy Who Lived, . Rowling introduced two new stories from the Wizarding World in 2016. On June 7, previews for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child began at London's Palace Theatre, with the play's script published on July 31. The show opens 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts (from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows ) and follows the trials of an older Harry and his youngest son Albus. In November, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opened in theaters with Eddie Redmayne in the lead role. The film takes place 65 years before Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and follows wizard Newt Scamander as he tracks down his lost magical creatures in New York City.
