Rejection of THE CURSED CHILD as Sequel to Harry Potter

For all the Fans of Harry Potter started this petition to J.K Rowling

As I said before : Harry Potter and the Cursed Child should not be an "official" sequel to Harry Potter. In Fact, it does not belong to the "inner" Harry Potter universe. This is why I want that JK Rowling draws back her official statement that this is a "real" sequel.

I am only talking about the plot and the fictional connection to Harry Potter. No criticism on the adaption on stage. The actors, writers, and everybody else involved in this play is surely doing the best job. I might even like (or dislike) the performance, this is not the point.

The point is, however, that Harry Potter was finished - is finished. The idea to make another part is risky and could lead to failure, and I think it did. I didn't expect something as astonishing as the former books, but the plot of the play was shocking.

It just does not fit to the concept of Harry's former adventures. Might it be because of Time Travel, several different reality options or whatever. It doesn't feel right. If it would be another wizard and another enemy (or even Voldemort, sorry! YOU-KNOW-WHO) I would be fine. The plot in itself is fine - make it a Doctor Who Episode I'd love it- just not the connection to the "old" parts. Of course, in fiction everything is allowed, and it is the authors choice what to write, but books and especially very successfull book series are pretty much related to the readers' receptions.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST: I am an extremely huge Fan. Grew up with this.  I love JK Rowling's texts and I am so impressed of her imagination and her style of writing! But "the Cursed Child" is not fully her own work and this doesn't go unnoticed. AGAIN: No Offence to the co-writers, you did a wonderful job, if it just wasn't Harry Potter.  Still I'd love to hear a lot more from the Wizarding World, why not extend background movies? Harry did his duty, let him rest ;) But a movie about Grindelwald or the Hogwarts founders or whatever- wouldn't that be a good idea?. But no 8. Part. The story is told.
