Daniel Radcliffe (‘The Woman In Black‘) has chimed in on any chance of an appearance in the upcoming movie being penned by J.K. Rowling. Muggles everywhere are excited about the news of the upcoming ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as well as other spin-off movies. But what about the boy who started it all?
Well according to Radcliffe, he wouldn’t be opposed to the idea but he doesn’t think it’ll be happening. For starters, he heard about the new films through the news and not from Warner Brothers and while that wouldn’t even fully rule it out he had this to say:
“I don’t think I’m going to be coming back. We can’t be doing these characters when we’re 40, so there has to be a line drawn.
That’s not to say that he wouldn’t do it. Depending how it was written:
“… I never know what Jo [Rowling] is going to write, but at the moment I’m in the same position that everyone else is in — waiting to hear what information is coming out because I don’t know anything about these new films.”
What if this did end up with some kind of time travel where the main character of Newt Scamander travels into the future? Radcliffe was thinking along the same lines because he’s pretty sure that the only way Newt might just bump into Potter and crew is if “time travel rears its head again.” Since this is about the author of the guidebook for every wizard at Hogwarts, it wouldn’t be too surprising to find out that he had in fact been involved in some kind of time travel.
While I wouldn’t normally hold my breath for it to happen, I’m sure that Warner Brothers wouldn’t turn down the chance to have a reason to bring back this crowd drawing star whose movies have grossed over $7.7 billion dollars in the box office alone. That’s a huge amount of a built in fan base that a cameo could help draw into the film.
Would Radcliffe making an appearance help you check out ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’ when it comes out or is Harry’s story over with?
