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.''

Every day, conversations in the film community gravitate to how DC, Marvel and Lucasfilm are working on huge, interconnected universes on the big screen. Innumerable other franchises are emulating this blueprint too, whether it be the Universal Monsters or Ghostbusters. But a similar franchise largely kept out of the conversation is Harry Potter. In the next decade, we’re going to get at least three new films in Potter’s universe ...
