London: British author JK Rowling, whose Harry Potter novels became global bestsellers, said that an "untold part" of the story about the fresh-faced wizard will be staged as a play in London.

She confirmed the news on Twitter:

The author pointed out that June 26 is also the 18th anniversary of the publication of her first book Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in Britain.

The Daily Mail said the play would tell a story about Harry's parents, Lily Evans and James Potter, before they were killed by Lord Voldemort.

The seventh and final novel in the Harry Potter saga was published in 2007, although she has since published some stories featuring Harry Potter.

Harry Potter is one of the world's biggest literary success stories, with more than 450 million copies sold worldwide.

The film versions of the books were also record-breaking, taking in more than $7.0 billion (6.3 billion euros) at the box office.
