The "Child" isn't cursed after all.
In the first few days after its North American debut, the script for "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child'"sold more than 2 million print copies, Scholastic revealed Wednesday.
Though that's well below the 8 million copies the seventh book in the wildly popular series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," sold in 2007, it's still one of the fastest-selling works of literature in history.
What's really interesting is that the "Cursed Child" is a script to a play, and as the AP puts it, "for a project that only partially involved [J.K.] Rowling."
It's sold even more copies than the script for "Hamilton." And in the U.K. it has sold over 680,000 print copies.
The "Cursed Child" was co-written by Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne.
In the months leading up to its release, pre-orders for the book hit record numbers and it has now climbed to the top of the best-seller lists on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Stats on how many e-copies of the book have sold are not yet available.
