So now the director of that first movie has made some interesting statements regarding a potential new movie set in the Harry Potter universe – the Cursed Child.
Will Harry Potter the Cursed Child be Made into a Movie?
The director of the first Harry Potter movie, Chris Columbus, was asked in an interview with Variety via IGN whether he could envision more movies in the Harry Potter universe. This came specifically after referring to the prequel series of films Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.
He stated in the interview that he would love to direct The Cursed Child, which is a play written by J.K. Rowling as well and takes place in the same universe.
What is The Cursed Child About?
The Cursed Child is a play by the author of the Harry Potter series J.K. Rowling. The play takes place 19 years after the famous trio graduated from Hogwarts and are living their lives as adults. This means that they’re married, have kids who are up to no good.

The play’s story revolves around Albus Severus Potter– Harry’s son who is also attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
With a story surrounding the main cast of the Harry Potter series as grown-ups, wouldn’t it be perfect to have – 10 years since the final film was released – a reunion as well?
Will the Original Cast Be in The Cursed Child?
Whether the cast of the original Harry Potter films would be part of the movie is still unknown. Whether The Cursed Child will even be made into a movie is also still up-in-the-air. This all comes from an interview with Chris Columbus, who could envision the cast reprising their original roles, but in a different way than before.
The Harry Potter cast is all grown up now and would fit into the parental role of their children quite well, at least age-wise. Each actor and actress has gone on to star in very different films. 10 years since the final film was released – a reunion as well. Here's the way to see which character you'd be in Harry Potter saga - The new characters from The Cursed Child not included yet!"
