Earlier this month, Warner Bros. dropped a huge bomb on the world of Harry Potter, announcing that it would be moving forward with spinoff sequels to the nine films already in existence. While the characters we met in the Harry Potter films are likely done appearing, the world they lived in is not and that includes games they played in the movies.
Yes, Quidditch is the sport of the Harry Potter world and according to Bleeding Cool it looks like a Quidditch movie is going to happen with the slew of spinoffs being planned.
Bleeding Cool listed a handful of Harry Potter trademarks made by Warner Bros. in the weeks since the announcement and the titles hint at possible spinoffs we will be seeing.
There’s the Potter book-within-a-book Tales Of Beedle The Bard. And the other spinoff mini-book Quidditch Through The Ages. There’s the Quidditch teams Wimbourne Wasps, Chudley Cannons, Kenmare Kestrels. The Quidditch expert Kennilworthy Whisp, and fictitious author of Quidditch Through The Ages.
The title that sticks out the most is the one that could and likely will be turned into a Quidditch movie at some point down the line. The only question is how exactly would a Quidditch movie work? There’s no question that the sport itself is one of the more exciting aspects of the original films, but can the game sustain an entire movie?
