Following the 20th anniversary of the franchise, hype levels have been increasing with many fans wondering if there will be a new Harry Potter movie in 2022. Some are speculating that the Cursed Child play will be turned into a movie that can be watched at cinemas, while others are hoping for a totally new story. Here’s everything that is known so far about a new Harry Potter movie in 2022, and whether it will feature the return of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint.
Will there be another Harry Potter movie in 2022?
At the time of writing, there is no official confirmation of a new Harry Potter movie being in the works for 2022 or beyond.
With the original books’ material having been exhausted by the eight films, and the third spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie having just been released, fans are still awaiting word on what’s next for Harry Potter in the cinema scene.
With films usually being announced way in advance, it’s unlikely that a new Harry Potter movie will release this year. Fans are looking at 2023 or beyond for the next Harry Potter film release date.
Those hoping for The Cursed Child play to be turned into a film, may be disappointed to learn that there has been no official confirmation of that ever happening. Despite this, there has been a lot of speculation amongst fans that this will eventually happen.
As for the future of Daniel Radcliffe as Harry, Emma Watson as Hermione, and Rupert Grint as Ron, they are now around the age that their characters would be in the Cursed Child. However, again, there has been no confirmed details about them revisiting their roles.
