Is Warner Bros. Planning ‘Harry Potter’ Spin-offs ‘Quidditch’ and ‘Beedle the Bard’?

More Harry Potter spin-offs may be coming soonEarlier this month, Warner Bros. announced that they are planning a Harry Potter spin-off movie based on the fictional book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which both appears in the movies and the original J.K. Rowling novels. The studio just recently trademarked the title, along with two other unannounced books within the Harry Potter world, Tales of Beedle the Bard and Quidditch Through the Ages, which may hint that more spin-offs coming.

J.K. Rowling wrote Quidditch Through the Ages under the pen name Kennilworthy Whisp in 2001, and it was meant to serve as a copy of the book referenced in the Harry Potter universe, which breaks down the history of this wizarding sport.

Warner Bros. may be developing a Harry Potter quidditch movie based on the book Quidditch Through the AgesTales of Beedle the Bard is another book featured within this magical world, which J.K. Rowling wrote in 2008. It features five popular bedtime stories in this particular world. The book was mentioned in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and its possible that all five stories could get their own feature film, or it could be an anthology movie.

Warner Bros. has gone onto trademark the names of three quidditch teams: Wimbourne Wasps, Chudley Cannons, Kenmare Kestrels. The author's fake name of Kennilworthy Whisp and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them author Newt Scamander have also been trademarked.

It isn't immediately clear what these trademarks were issued for, since it could be for anything ranging from a feature film, television series, video games, and many more. Stay tuned for more information about these Harry Potter projects.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 was released July 15th, 2011.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them comes to theaters November 18th, 2016.

    @cupid I was making a joke.

    So you don't like Harry, at least your honest.

    I finally got to see Elysium the other night and liked it a lot. Then I got to thinking, what would people think if Neill directed Star Trek.

            @therealGoku I don't know where the whole "Hollywood isn't original" thing comes from when we've got movies like Elysium, The Spectacular Now, Gravity, Prisoners, The Family, and Don John all this year...and that's just off the top of my head!

              @therealGoku Yeah, why stay attached to a profitable franchise when they could actually risk losing money?

                I do know one fact, Universal's Islands of Adventure and Warner Bros would profit this BIG time. And that's no brainer.

                    @therealGoku To be fair, there is always something new and original each year, you just have to know where to look. Sometimes, the majority of the movie audience aren't aware of the hundreds to near thousand films being made and released each year.
