The Wall Street Journal: ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ hit 2 million book sales in 2 days

Harry Potter still has the magic.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” the script book for J.K. Rowling’s new play, sold more than 2 million print copies in its first 48 hours in the U.S. and Canada, according to Scholastic. It’s a strong showing, particularly for a play, though it falls far short of the record-breaking sales of the final novel in the original series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” which in 2007 sold 8.3 million copies in the U.S. in its first 24 hours.

The script book, released Sunday at 12:01 a.m., sold 680,000 print copies in its first three days in the U.K.
