It's been eight years since we've seen Harry, Ron, and Hermione in the big screen, but a brand new rumor is claiming that the Harry Potter gang will reunite soon.
The folks over at We Got This Covered are reporting that Warner Bros. is serious about adapting Harry Potter and the Cursed Child into film. The studio reportedly intends to have Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson reprise their iconic roles for this latest Harry Potter expansion.
The successful Broadway adaptation of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child shows that there is still a craving for more Hogwarts-related content, and nothing will be better than allowing fans to check in with the beloved trio.
The fact that this story is big enough to be told in two parts also increases the chance that the reunion will not just be a one-off. The story will also be a perfect continuation to where Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, released in 2011, left off.
Radcliffe said in an IGN interview early this year that he expects Harry Potter to be rebooted. Although a few years back, he did say that he is open to reprising the role if author J.K. Rowling asked him. Whether or not this is him keeping his word remains to be seen. At the moment, it would seem as though he would be interested to revisit the wizarding world as no more than a spectator.
"It will be interesting to see how long those films stay… it feels like there's a sacredness around them at the moment, but that'll go, the shine will wear off at some point. It'll be interesting if they reboot them and just do the films again or do a series; I'm fascinated to watch."
No other details about this purported Harry Potter comeback have been provided by the abovementioned publication, so we advise readers to take this rumor with a grain of salt.
