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.''

The FIFA World Cup isn’t without its charms, but any Harry Potter fan worth his weight in Galleons knows that Muggle soccer has nothing on Quidditch. Soon, the rest of the world may come to realize that as well, thanks to a new documentary. Directed by Farzad Sangari, Mudbloods follows the UCLA Quidditch team on their journey to the Fifth Annual Quidditch World Cup in New York City. I realize that sentence may sound completely absurd if you’re not familiar with the Harry ...
