Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the two-part play set 19 years after the last Harry Potter installment, has just opened in London on July 30th, much to great acclaim by fans and critics. According to reports, the play has received many five-star ratings since it previewed to the public in June. The rehearsal script of the play was also released in book format the day after the play’s opening, June 31st, sending Potterheads all over the world into a frenzy. The play was written by Jack Thorne, based on a new story written by him, Harry Potter series author J.K. Rowling, and John Tiffany.
When Rowling was asked whether Harry Potter and the Cursed Child would make it to broadway, the author said that she would very much like that to happen. And not only in Broadway, she points out. She would like for the play to make it everywhere for fans all over the world. Sounds amazing, right? Hope it makes Manila!
But not only that. Despite earlier interviews of J.K. Rowling saying it is unlikely that the film will make a debut on the big screen as well, according to entertainment site GamesRadar.com, it has been reported that Warner Bros.—the film studio behind the massive Harry Potter movie franchise and the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them trilogy—has already filed a trademark for movie rights to Cursed Child earlier this month.
So are we or are we not getting a ninth Harry Potter movie??? I think it’s highly possible! Although, we might have to wait until the end of the end of the three upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them movies…which isn’t until the year 2020. But ahh, so what. More magical movies for all of us!
The magic of the wizarding world is alive once more, and the muggles are ecstatic.
