Summary: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.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is like a mediocre fanfic that is ok enough to get though it but it’s not something that you would read again.
The best two things about it
Draco and Scorpius Malfoy.
Those two deserved all the awards and hugs.
Oh one more thing
Minvera Mcgonagall getting tired of the golden trio and their kids shit.
The plot was weak cause changing time never works out well(plot holes everyone) and the characterization was shaky at best.( Ron Wesley was just there for mediocre comedic relief)
I think the reason why the Cursed Child feels fanficy because it have tropes and cliches that we have seen over and over again. I’m at the part where they trying to correct time and it feels so predictable.
The Alternative timeline have the person perceived by people doing things that they would never do in the original timeline.
One person tells the other person the good they done in the original timeline and they decide to help them.
It’s still a resistance against the regime that now underground.
One person being the rebel leader and the most wanted.
The resistance helps the person change the timeline back.
Two people confess their love and which they sacrifice themselves to help the others to move on with the mission.
The person who offered to help ,redeem themselves (for the greater good)by sacrifice themselves by hold off the leader of the regime to have the hero who needs to make it out, time. They are also told what a good person they are for the umpteenth time.
This just from one scene alone and not the whole play. It’s all the things you have seen before in movies, books ,shows ,and fanfics.It just doesn’t feel like canon but just someone mediocre take on how the 19 years later would be.
