“It’s not something that really interests me right now,” he says.
The reunion of Harry Potter could well be short-lived. Whereas Daniel RadcliffeEmma Watson and Rupert Grint made the event at the beginning of the year with “The Reunion” on HBO Max, we now understand that this television show did not bode well for a comeback of the franchise in cinema.
In an interview with the New York Times, Daniel Radcliffe explains that he has no intention of falling back into magic, signing on to do, as has been rumored for some time, an adaptation of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. At least not immediately. “It’s not something that really interests me right now“, he says.
The Harry Potter series is not for tomorrow, but…

Obviously, he suffered (we know that he has a few addictions which he had trouble getting rid of) and does not want to risk ruining what he managed to build post-Harry Potter : “I’m getting to a point where I feel like I’ve made it out of Potter and I’m really happy with where I am now.

For me , it’s only been 10 years since I’m done with Harry Potter. So coming back now isn’t something I really care about right now.”
This will seriously calm those who thought a new film was in the pipeline for Warner Bros., after Chris Colombus expressed interest in adapting The Cursed Child At the movie theater. Knowing that the saga of Fantastic Beasts is struggling and seems destined to stop with Dumbledore’s Secretsthe director of the first two Harry Potter appeared on a highway to bring to the screen this play which takes place 19 years later. “It’s a great play and the kids (Daniel, Emma and Rupert) are actually the right age now to play these roles. So it’s a little fantasy for me.“The fantasy will therefore remain in the state of fantasy for the moment. We will have to wait a few more years…
