And there is a reasonable reason for this.
Since Joan Rowling continued the seemingly finished Harry Potter story with the performance “The Cursed Child”, fans have wondered about the possible adaptation of the script and the appearance of a full-length film. However, if this happens, the actors of the original series of films will not be able to see the audience. This was stated with full confidence by Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy.
The actor noted that he did not see the need for such a continuation of the Harry Potter story.
I think these were wonderful eight chapters, and all that had to be done was done,
– he said. True, Tom also joked that he could be persuaded to star in the movie Harry Potter and the Cursed Child if Warner Bros. will open its vault in Gringotts for this. ”
In general, the actor does not consider the film “Cursed Child” to be especially probable and does not believe that he and the rest of the cast will again turn to their roles in order to adapt the play. Obviously, Felton considers the existing Harry Potter saga to be complete and does not consider it worth returning to.
On the one hand, the transformation of the play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” seems reasonable from the point of view of financial success, which would undoubtedly be waiting for the picture. The Cursed Child also looks like a great fallback for Warner Bros. in case the Fantastic Beasts franchise withers.
On the other hand, Joan Rowling, who greatly influences the fate of her creation, may not want the movie “Cursed Child” to appear on large screens. Also, do not forget that there are some elements in the play that are not related to the canon, and therefore can negatively affect the perception of the Wizarding World by loyal fans.
For now, Fantastic Beasts 3 remains the closest movie in the Harry Potter universe. The premiere of the tape is scheduled for November 12, 2021.
