A movie about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child could have Daniel Radcliffe back as the main character. He says he’s not sure if that’s what would happen. Based on J.K. Rowling’s famous book series of the same name, the movie series started in 2001 with The Sorcerer’s Stone. It was a big hit. It was a long time before anyone knew who Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint were and when they were chosen to be the faces of the movie franchise. By the time the movie saga came to an end in 2011, all three had become stars.
Since then, there have been many interests in seeing the franchise’s Golden Trio back in their roles. There has already been talking about making a movie about the Cursed Child. In The Force Awakens, Chris Columbus, the director of the first two Harry Potter films, said that if the original trio came back for the movie, it would be “cinematic bliss.”
New York Times interview: However, Radcliffe said he isn’t ready to go back to Hogwarts. Because of Columbus’ comments, the actor regretfully shot down the idea of making a Cursed Child movie. He said it’s not something he wants to do “right now.” Because it took “the Star Wars guys like 30 or 40 years before they went back,” Radcliffe says he won’t say never. Find out what he said in full down below:
It’s not what anyone wants, but I think I was able to enjoy it so much because it’s not something I do every day. At this point, I’m getting to the point where I’m happy with my life right now. Going back to Potter would be such a significant change.
People who worked on Star Wars didn’t return for about 30 or 40 years. For me, it’s only been 10. It’s not something I’m really interested in doing right now.
He may not want to return to Harry Potter so soon. That’s what happened to the three actors who played Harry Potter. Making the movies and casting those stars put so much pressure for them to deal with Watson even thought about quitting because of all the stress. But instead, they are happy with the work they’ve done for the franchise. Radcliffe is also working on other projects. Like The Lost City and a Weird Al biopic that looks interesting, too.
The actress still looks like she’s taking a break from acting, but it’s not clear when she’ll get back into the business. Even if Daniel Radcliffe wanted to come back, he would only be one-third of the recipe for a Harry Potter & the Cursed Child series to work. On the other hand, Rupert seems to be open to the idea if everyone else agrees.
