Could there be a new 'Harry Potter' movie on the cards?

JK Rowling has hinted that 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' could soon be turned into a movie.


Harry Potter fans are freaking out following rumours that a new movie could be on its way. 

It's been eight years since 'Deathly Hallows 2', the final movie in the 'Harry Potter' franchise, hit the big screen.

 The bestselling books ended in 2007 with Harry and his friends going on to become parents.

In 2016, JK Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany worked on a two-part play together called 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child'. The screenplay was written by Jack Thorne. 

'Cursed Child' takes place 19 years after the final book in the series ended. 

Harry's son Albus Severus Potter is about to attend Hogwarts and so begins the next adventure in the series. 

JK Rowling shared a post on Twitter that hinted something special was on its way.

"Sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places #HarryPotter #CursedChild," she captioned a picture of a Death Eater skull and Slytherin House snake.

Harry's son Albus caused a bit of a scandal in the 'Cursed Child' when the Sorting Hat put him in Slytherin House with Scorpius Malfoy, the son of  Draco Malfoy.

The tweet is JK's first in almost six months, leading some to believe it must mean an announcement is coming soon. 

"Oh My God, Please say the famous trio is returning, Please say it, JK," one Twitter user wrote. 

Another user wrote: "I almost lost my s**t completely, upon seeing this post *must stay calm*."

'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' is currently showing on Broadway in New York.
