While many Harry Potter fans may have been hoping for a big celebration to mark the 10th anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 this year, the boy wizard himself has said that whatever does happen won't be likely to involve the cast getting back together for the occasion. Speaking in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Daniel Radcliffe said there would probably be some kind of celebration but fans were likely to be a bit disappointed that it wouldn't include a full blown reunion. While it is incomprehensible to believe that the culmination of the Harry Potter saga on film was two decades ago, there is no doubt that Warner Bros. will be marking the occasion in some way, especially as they are planning to make the world of the wizard the cornerstone in many of their future plans, but fans may need to just curb their expectations of what that might entail.
Daniel Radcliffe recently had this to say, "I'm in the Dominican Republic at the moment filming and then I'm going to be busy, kind of working on bits and pieces until the end of the year. So yeah, I don't know. I'm sure there will be some sort of celebration but I don't know if we will be getting together or anything. I'm sorry if that's a bit of a disappointment to anyone."
While Radcliffe isn't seemingly up for a Potter gathering, Bonnie Wright, who at the end of the final movie had become Mrs. Potter, recently spoke about the prospect of returning to the franchise in a future reboot or remake, and didn't see the point in it. Whether that also includes celebratory get-togethers, we don't know, but one star of the movies who would be up for anything Potter, would be Harry's school sparring partner, Draco Malfoy, actor Tom Felton. In an interview with People magazine, Felton was happy to talk about his role and the possibility of reprising it.
"If you're asking me will I dye my hair blonde again to be Draco, abso-bloody-lutely. Either [him or Lucius]. I'll play Draco's kid if you really want!" Felton told the outlet. "Any chance to be a Malfoy again would be greatly accepted." "I do feel if someone else played [Draco], I'd be slightly possessive, going, 'Hang on,'" Felton said.
"I was speaking to Rupert [Grint], Daniel and Emma [Watson] separately the other day and [said], 'Twenty years, can you imagine that?' " he continued. "First of all, they all look the bloody same, literally. Rupert looks exactly the same. Also, we're all sort of a bit flabbergasted that it's [even] more popular [now]. We're all a bit surprised by that. We're certainly excited, and made to feel old when we realize that it was 20 years ago that we made the first film."
There is little doubt that, to many, there is an appetite for more from the world of Harry Potter. With the Fantastic Beasts series about to conclude, the future of Harry Potter on both the big and small screens, is something with limitless options. This news comes to us from EW.
