As a franchise, Harry Potter has been extremely popular and profitable, grossing nearly $10 billion at the box office in the 11 films released to date. There have been eight main Harry Potter films and three films in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, a prequel focusing on the adventures of Newt Scamander and Albus Dumbledore to a lesser extent. the latest movie set in the wizarding world of harry potter was released in early 2022. given that harry potter has a history of performing well (though maybe not lately), it’s not out of the realm of possibility that a movie is in the works. new movie in the franchise. worked in some stage of pre-production.
However, since the last movie was released this year, there won’t be a new Harry Potter movie in 2022. It’s also worth noting that with the backlash stemming from the controversy surrounding J.K. Rowling For those unaware, Rowling often tweets transphobic comments, leading many Harry Potter fans to leave the franchise, if not the creator. Add to that the fact that they rewrote johnny deep for fantastic beasts: dumbledore’s secrets and that the same movie starred ezra miller, who has been in trouble with the law for the last few months, and you’ll find that the fantastic beasts franchise fantastic barely manages to stay afloat.
yes warner bros. were going to make another movie in the franchise, they have a few options, some that fans have been clamoring for since the last harry potter movie was released. So, let’s go over the possible avenues they could take for a new Harry Potter movie.
fantastic beasts 4
The Fantastic Beasts series was originally supposed to consist of five films, so two of those films have not been released. Of course, as mentioned above, the Fantastic Beasts franchise has been plagued by controversy with Ezra Miller, J.K. rowling and johnny depp. At the time of writing, it’s unclear if the controversy has managed to sink the franchise and if the next two planned entries will ever come to fruition.
but if they did make a fourth movie in the fantastic beasts franchise, what would that movie be about? we leave fantastic beasts: dumbledore’s secrets with dumbledore and grindelwald’s blood pact destroyed, meaning dumbledore can finally deal directly with grindelwald, leading to their battle hinted at in the harry potter books. As for the credibility of the character of ezra miller, who was revealed to be dumbledore’s nephew, it seems that they were preparing to kill off his character, as his health slowly deteriorates over the course of the film.
so they could possibly do fantastic beasts 4 without ezra miller and do it quite naturally. As for Johnny Depp, Mads Mikkelsen has said that Depp could return to the role, which would be an odd choice for a fourth film. Either way, there seem to be ways to get around the series’ controversies, at least to the point where they can wrap up their five-movie plan.
harry potter and the cursed child
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is an original work written by J.K. rowling, jack thorne, and john tiffany in which harry potter, ginny weasley, ronald weasley, and hermione granger grew up and had children. The play was set after the events of the main Harry Potter series and followed one of Harry Potter’s sons, Albus Severus Potter. The plot of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child revolves around Albus using the Time-Turner to go back to when his father was still attending Hogwarts and altering history for a time as a result. Part of the story is a fun “what if” tale that alters some of the classic Harry Potter stories fans know and love, all against the backdrop of Voldemort’s possible return.
It would not be very clear how the work would be adapted into a possible film or films, since the work is divided into two parts. The cast of the original Harry Potter probably wouldn’t return for the movie, and if they don’t return as themselves, then the movie version of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child might not be worth the money. Warner Bros. it would be better to wait to do an adaptation of the play when the cast is ready to reprise their roles.
A story about the Marauders is something most Harry Potter fans have wanted since the end of the Harry Potter series. If you’re not familiar with the Marauders, they are the group consisting of James Potter, Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, and Peter Pettigrew. Any project based on the Marauders, be it a film series or a television series, would be a Harry Potter prequel.
It could be set during his adventures at Hogwarts or even later, during the First Wizarding War, when Dumbledore assembled the Order of the Phoenix to help him defeat Voldemort and his forces. after his stories were so bleak in the main series, we finally got to see some happiness in the lives of james and lily potter when they were still newlyweds or sirius black with his leather jacket and motorcycle. Honestly, this seems like a safe bet to cash in on the Harry Potter name, but maybe the ship has sailed for this prequel idea.
harry potter 9
This might be the least likely project on this list, but there’s always the chance that warner bros. Features the original cast of the film to return for an adventure set between Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. JK Rowling may not have to be involved in this project either, as he could give his blessing to a new story like he has with the next Hogwarts Legacy game. However, as with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, or Emma Watson are unlikely to want to return to the franchise at this stage in their careers. however, he does not rule out appearances in the future.
these are just some of the possible projects that warner bros. could be adapted into a movie set in the wizarding world of harry potter. As for whether they’ll turn any of these into movies, only time will tell. As for how long, well, that’s a question for Warner Bros., all we can definitely tell you is that aside from Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets, no new Harry Potter movies will be released in 2022.
