She’s not done writing wonderful wizardry tales just yet- J.K. Rowling has announced she’s working on a new play to deal with Harry Potter’s pre-Hogwarts School life.

According to a statement from the author herself, the forthcoming project will “explore the previously untold story of Harry’s early years as an orphan and outcast.”

And while she won’t actually pen the script herself, Rowling will collaborate with a scribe and also serve as a producer along with Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender.
