These Harry Potter Superfans Were First in Line to Buy the New Book in Dubai
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was finally released on Sunday and people around the globe camped out to get their hands on the book which contains the script of the new London play.
But those in the UK were not the only ones waiting in line until the new offering came out at midnight.
In fact, those living in the UAE had to stay up extra late (or rise especially early) to be one of the first people in the world to purchase the book. So Virgin Megastore in Dubai's Mall of the Emirates put on a bit of a party for superfans in recognition of not only Harry's birthday but author J.K. Rowling's too.
Potter fans, old and young (really young, check out those cute kiddy faces!) stepped out to play with the sorting hat and have some photobooth fun. See what the 500 people got up to from 1.30am-4.30am in the gallery. Would you do the same to buy your favorite book series?
