It has been rumoured that a new installment of the Harry Potter series is being added to the Wizarding World more than ten years after the final movie in the series was published.
Following its success in the West End, it was claimed that producers were in discussions to create a movie based on the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play, using members of the original movie cast.
The original trio would have been followed in the new adaption 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts, but unlike the characters, you won’t need a time machine to figure out what’s happening in this most recent movie.
David Zaslav, a Warner Bros. executive, recently talked about how “profitable” the first film series was and how he planned to concentrate more on the brand going forward.

The original cast of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson would be the appropriate age for the movie, and Warner Bros currently holds the rights to The Cursed Child.
Unfortunately, when contacted by The Mirror, a Warner Bros official claimed that the stories were “false.”
After the controversy surrounding Johnny Depp’s role in the Fantastic Beasts series, which caused the actor to leave the property, Warner Brothers has been reluctant to produce another movie.
It appears that the Cursed Child movie may struggle to get off the ground, much like Ron’s ill-fated Ford Anglia, given the weak box office receipts and other factors.
In fact, Daniel Radcliffe has acknowledged that 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 explained to The New York Post.
The actor continued, saying: “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, don’t break out the polyjuice potion just yet as he did tease: “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.”
