Warner Bros. Copyrights ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ For Film Rights

Warner Bros. put the wheels in motion for an eighth Harry Potter film when the company filed for a trademark on ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,’ according to Slash Film.

‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ takes place 19 years after the events of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ and follows an older Harry Potter, now a Ministry of Magic employee, and his younger son Albus Severus Potter.

J.K. Rowling’s two-part West End stage play is currently in preview performances at the Palace Theatre in London with a grand opening at the end of the month.

The official ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ script book has a release date of July 31.
