Another Harry Potter movie planned?

Sep 29 2013, 10:22am CDT | by Bang Movies

Warner Bros. have hinted at a Quidditch-based 'Harry Potter' spin-off.

The film studios - who already announced author J.K. Rowling will be writing the script for 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them', based in the wizard world she created - has also trademarked 'Quidditch Through the Ages'.

The book of the same title, which is based on the fictional sport she created for the original novels, was one of two spin-offs released for charity Comic Relief in 2001, and both films could be kick-starting a new 'Harry Potter' franchise.

According to BleedingCool.com, the company applied for several terms to be trademarked, including three hinting at the rumoured Quidditch movie.

Along with the title, Warner Bros. also tied up team names Wimbourne Wasps, Chudley Cannons and Kenmare Kestrels, along with the original book's fictional author Kennilworthy Whisp.

Previously speaking about the 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' movie - which will follow its writer Newt Scamander - J.K. Rowling noted while it was set in the 'Harry Potter' universe, it would not have a connection to the original story.

She said: ''Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world.

''The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt's story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry's gets underway.''

Having taken the helm on the final four films of the main series, Yates clearly possesses an affinity with the material that the studio is keen to tap into once more.

HARRY POTTER Director David Yates in Talks to Helm Spinoff FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

Aug 21 2014 1:54pm CDT | Source: Collider

As the director behind the final four Harry Potter films starting with Order of the Phoenix, filmmaker David Yates was likely the most well-versed filmmaker in Potter lore.  Chris Columbus kicked the franchise off with the first two films, Alfonso Cuaron brought a maturity and unique artistic quality to the series, and Mike Newell injected his inherent Britishness into the franchise, but it was Yates who handled the conclusion of The Boy Who Lived.  And so it’s fitting that it now looks l ...
