‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ Might Get A Movie Treatment
The stage play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” has been getting raves from audience and critics alike. The story picks up several years after the last “Harry Potter” and all the characters, including their kids, have already grown up.
It looks like Warner Bros is planning on bringing the story of the play into the big screen. According to Hypable , the studio has already applied for a trademark for “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” The trademark was solely owned by “Harry Potter” creator J.K. Rowling until this application, which was revealed by an lawyer in Ireland.
Hypable further points out that the trademark is under Class 9, which is reserved for film rights. Thus, it’s further boosting that Warner Bros and J.K. Rowling might soon be working together again for the “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” movie version. Nerdist reports that if this pushes through, production could begin sometime in 2028. That is, if Daniel Radcliff, Emma Watson and Ron Weasley will have to star in it.
Warner Bros bought the rights to do the movies of all the stories in the “Harry Potter” book series. It also has the rights to “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them,” which is said to be a spinoff of “Harry Potter.” “Fantastic Beasts” is part of a trilogy, with the first movie hitting theaters this November.
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” the two-part play, is currently running on West End. It stars a different cast of actors from the “Harry Potter” movies.
