Por trás das câmeras
Following the announcement of the publication of the play in script form, headlines from many sources proclaimed the title as the “eighth Harry Potter novel” by Rowling, despite the fact that official sources have been clear that the new book is simply a complete copy of the play’s script, which was not authored by her. Various sources have also described the play incorrectly as a “prequel,” despite Rowling’s statements to the contrary and the fact that the play is clearly described as taking place 19 years after the events of the final novel.
