The success of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play at London’s Palace Theater in July 2016 prompted Warner Brothers Studios to consider this move, the source claimed, albeit they added that the film’s production was still in its very early stages.

According to the insider, “the dream would be to have significant stars back, including Daniel Radcliffe, but that is still incredibly far off,” as reported by The Sun.

“The hope at the moment is that The Cursed Child could be made into two films – both of which would pack as much punch, if not more, than the stage show,” they added.
