Not even "Hamilton" can keep up with these numbers.

Scholastic announced Wednesday that the script to the London stage production "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two" sold more than 2 million print copies in North America in its first two days of publication.

That's well below the 8.3 million copies sold for the first day for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," J.K. Rowling's presumed finale for her fantasy series, but still among the fastest-selling works in history.

Sales for the e-edition, released through Rowling's Pottermore website, have not been announced. The script is based on a Rowling story and co-written by Jack Thorne and John Tiffany.
