There have been rumours that a new Harry Potter movie is in the works more than ten years after the final film’s release.
Not only that, but there were claims that the original cast would also be making a comeback.
This news comes as we’ve all been swept up in a whirlwind of the Wizarding World after Hogwarts Legacy came out.
Prior to its release, many social media users threatened to boycott Hogwarts Legacy over J.K. Rowling’s previous controversial comments about trans people, despite this, it looks like the game has gained a lot of fans.
Let’s go back to where it all began. What started out as a mere musing while stuck on a delayed train in London, 1990, led to a young Joanne Rowling conjuring up the magical story of Harry Potter.
Thirty years since it’s creation, over 500 million copies of the book franchise have been sold worldwide in eighty different languages, making it one of the best-selling book series of all time.
The adventures of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger were quick to capture a vast and loyal fanbase, with children and adults alike being instantly captivated by the novel.
So, of course, it didn’t take long for the movie adaptations to come along, bringing Rowling’s words and imagination to life by transforming them into a series of blockbuster movies.
The wizardry and witchcraft mania that was induced by the books was only exaggerated after the release of the on-screen adaptations which, collectively, grossed around $6.5 billion in total.
But now, just to add to our Harry Potter obsession, a Warner Brothers spokesperson has opened up about the possibility of another film based on The Cursed Child, sadly it isn’t the news we’d all been hoping for.
It seems the rumours of a possible sequel in the franchise are “false,” so although Warner Bros have the rights to the movie, and the trio are actually the perfect age to return as Harry, Ron, and Hermione, it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting another film anytime soon.
Even Daniel Radcliffe has acknowledged that the thought of playing his legendary character again after over ten years makes him feel “strange.”
“This isn’t the answer that anybody’s going to want, but I think I was so able to go back and enjoy it [the recent Harry Potter reunion] because it’s not a part of my day-to-day life anymore,” he told The New York Post.
The actor continued: “I’m getting to a point where I feel like I made it out of Potter OK and I’m really happy with where I am now – going back would be such a massive change to my life.”
However, he added: “I’m never going to say never…The Star Wars guys had like 30, 40 years before they went back. For me, it’s only been 10. It’s not something I’m really interested in doing right now.”
