Could Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Become The Next Film?

It’s been over 10 years since the final Harry Potter film was released, and since then, fans have been clamoring for a return to the world of Hogwarts. After the success of the original eight-film series, it seemed unlikely that a new Harry Potter movie was in the works. However, the recent release of the new play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, has once again sparked conversations about the potential for yet another movie in the Harry Potter world. Could Harry Potter and the Cursed Child become the next film?

The Cursed Child’s Success

When Harry Potter and the Cursed Child opened in London’s West End in 2016, it quickly became a hit. With many critics praising the production, the show is now one of the longest-running Broadway productions of all time. The play has also gone on to have successful stagings in Melbourne, New York, and Tokyo – all with packed audiences. Many of the play’s fans have stated that the play has done justice to the original series, with its spellbinding performances and clever storytelling.

Potential for Adaptation

Many fans are now wondering if Harry Potter and the Cursed Child could be adapted into a film. The play already has a well-developed story, expansive characters and detailed sets, which lend itself well to a film adaptation. The play is split into two parts, which could be condensed into one film, allowing the audience to experience the entire journey in one sitting.

Differences Between Play and Film

Despite the potential for an adaptation, there are some differences between a play and a movie. In order for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to work as a movie, some changes must be made in order for it to work on the big screen.

The first difference is the use of special effects. In a play, special effects may be kept to a minimum, whereas in a film, special effects would have to be much more elaborate. The filmmakers would have to create magical spells, show explosions, and bring creatures to life using CGI, all of which would add to the budget of a film.

The second difference is that in a play, the characters’ journey is told on-stage, whereas in a film, much of the story may be told through voiceover or flashback sequences, which could be constructed to explain the characters’ backstory in a way that works better on the big screen.

Finally, a play can be produced with a smaller cast and crew, whereas a film needs a much larger cast and crew. This means that the filmmakers would need to find actors who can do justice to the complex characters in the play, in addition to finding the right director, crew, and set designers.

The Future of Harry Potter

With the success of the Cursed Child play, many fans are hoping that the story will be given the Hollywood treatment and transformed into a film. While there is no official news that the play is being adapted into a movie, the possibility is still there. If the franchise continues to remain successful, it is possible that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child could one day make it to the silver screen, delighting fans of the wizarding world just as much as the original films.

At the end of the day, whether or not Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is adapted into a movie is purely speculation. With hopes high and the possibility of a bright future for the Harry Potter franchise, fans worldwide can only cross their fingers and wait for news of a new movie.
