Warner Brothers trademarks HARRY POTTER Quidditch

What does Warner Bros have planned? It looks like they are setting certain Harry Potter projects aside.

Warner Bros. is cooking up something big for their Harry Potter franchise. They definitely aren’t done with it. On top of the spinoff Potter movie being written by J.K. Rowling, based on her faux textbook, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the studio has locked in some more trademarks that hint at some other films and forms of entertainment we might see for the franchise. One of which might lead to a sports movie that centers on Quidditch, which would be awesome! According to Bleeding Cool the registered trademarks include…

The other spinoff mini-book Quidditch Through The Ages.

The Quidditch teams Wimbourne Wasps, Chudley Cannons, Kenmare Kestrels.

The Quidditch expert Kennilworthy Whisp, and fictitious author of Quidditch Through The Ages.

Newt Scamander, the fictitious author of Fantastic Beasts.

The Potter book-within-a-book Tales Of Beedle The Bard.

Are you intrigued by what some are speculating to be a Quidditch movie?

J.K. Rowling to have full screenplay rights for HARRY POTTER spin-off

Fear no more, Potterheads. 

According to THR, Rowling will write the screenplay for the first film all herself, and if WB wants another screenwriter to rewrite it, Rowling will have to approve the process.

As for the rest of the films in the series, Rowling will have script approval, so even if she is not writing the film herself, she will ultimately dictate the direction in which the series goes.

It seems that Rowling’s full vision will be realized for this film series.

HARRY POTTER Fantastic Beasts spin-off series will have accompanying video games

Not only have new Potter movies been announced, but the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them series will be available on multiple interactive platforms.

Video games based on the popular Harry Potter films were developed and published by Electronic Arts. It is unclear if Warner Bros. will develop the new Fantastic Beasts games internally through its Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment label or license them out.

No release date for the theatrical release of the first Fantastic Beasts movie was announced, nor were details regarding platforms for the tie-in games.

It’s early days yet, but based on the hype surrounding the films, game companies will be eager to get the rights for any Potter-themed project.

JK Rowling To Expand HARRY POTTER Universe With Debut Screenplay on FANTASTIC BEASTS

jkr-fantastic-beastsIt’s been 2 years since the last Harry Potter film was out in theaters, and even longer since the final book for Harry Potter was released, but references to Harry Potter still abound even now.

Many people who are adults now grew up reading the books, so of course the love of Harry Potter and everything related to it would be present now, and will be so for years to come, even without this bit of news, that Warner Bros. is working with JK Rowling in making a new film based on the Harry Potter-related book, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

JK Rowling is actually going to be writing the screenplay for the film, which will be a first for her, and the story is going to focus on Magizoologist Newt Scamander, who “wrote” the Magical Beasts book in the Potterverse, and will thus take place 70 years prior to Harry Potter’s adventures at Hogwarts.

“It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning Fantastic Beasts into a film,” Rowling explained in a statement. “I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author of Fantastic Beasts, realised by another writer was difficult. Having lived for so long in my fictional universe, I feel very protective of it and I already knew a lot about Newt. As hardcore Harry Potter fans will know, I liked him so much that I even married his grandson, Rolf, to one of my favourite characters from the Harry Potter series, Luna Lovegood.”

Rowling continued: “As I considered Warners’ proposal, an idea took shape that I couldn’t dislodge. Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for 17 years, Fantastic Beasts 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.”

How do you feel about expanding the Harry Potter world on film? What do you think about JK Rowling writing the screenplay for it?
