‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’ Might Be Being Made Into A Movie


To be honest, it was probably inevitable.

Since J.K. Rowling announced that theHarry Potter saga would continue, only this time in the shape of a play, we’ve been just waiting for somebody to snap up the rights, and make The Cursed Child into a movie.

Because while yes,it’s great that it’sa play, it has massively restricted how many people are going to be able to see it. If you don’t live in the UK (or even just in London), then watching it is by no means going to be as easy as popping to your local cinema multiplex…

So, in stepsWarner Bros., who – significantly – have just trademarked the play’s title. Maybe they’re not going to adapt it into a film – maybe they’re just going to film the play and release that – but in any case, you can expect to see The Cursed Child, coming to a big screen near you..

When? We’d imagine after the play’s initial theatrical run at least, so it might be a while…

We’re also guessing that – regardless of whether Warner Bros. end up filming the play, or making a wholly original adaptation – there’s going to be two installments (given that it’s a two part play).

Exciting? Some people aren’t so sure… Those that have seen the play are arguing that the story doesn’t lend itself to a cinematic adaptation – that it works well at the theatre, and wouldn’t translate to the big screen.

Of coursethose of us who haven’t seen the play couldn’t possibly know, but the script of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be released as a book on the 25th July, meaning that we will – in any case – get to find out what happens next in the story…
