With Harry Potter And The Cursed Child sold out in London until next year (and beyond?), the Hogwarts fan-base is going crazy over any whispers of potential movie titles. With the upcoming release Eddie Redmayne starring prequel, Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, just around the corner, Warner Bros are making the worst possible mistake: giving fans hope.
It’s been five years since The Deathly Hallows Part 2 hit the big screen and fans hoping for another instalment of adventures from Hermione, Harry and the other one have been tweeting up a storm for the last few days.
Based on the hit script-book and West End Play, the New York Daily News reported a rumour that Warner Brothers studio were interested in bringing this story to life “as soon as 2020” with Radcliffe back behind the glasses and scar.
Fans were expectedly excited but swiftly had their wizarding parades rained on as Warner Bros issued a statement that read: “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a stage play, with no plans for there to be a film”.
The stage play opened last month to overwhelming reviews and focuses on Harry’s son Albus. The trio are now in their late thirties so probably couldn’t even be played by the original cast of Radcliffe, Watson and Grint right now… however, if they want to give it ten years and then reboot the whole series with new chapters, we’ll be there.
Radcliffe even said in a recent interview: “I don’t have an opinion on what should happen to the characters. I’m watching with the rest of the world and am fascinated to see what [J.K] does with it”. So sorry to destroy any hopes but we doubt we’ll see the original cast reuniting anytime soon.
However, you can step back into the Wizarding world on November 18. Check out the trailer for Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them below.
