Will there ever be another Harry Potter movie? Sure, there’s the » Fantastic Beasts » prequel series, but the really big magic doesn’t really want to appear in it, and it probably just needs the return of the one and only Harry Potter to make fans happy. For example, not only fans want the film adaptation of the stage play «Harry Potter and the Cursed Child», but also director Chris Columbus, who directed the first two «Potter» films. But what does Daniel Radcliffe say about a possible “ Harry Potter 8 ”?
Chris Columbus had not only expressed his hopes of directing the play as Harry Potter 8 for the cinema, but would also like to work again with the original stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. But in an interview with the New York Times , Daniel Radcliffe explained that he is currently not interested in playing Harry Potter again.
Daniel Radcliffe enjoys his career without ‘Harry Potter’
He knows that’s not the answer everyone wants to hear, but he’s at a point right now where he feels he’s found his way out of the Potter world and he’s very happy with that . Going back now would change his life too much. By the way: We have a tip for fans who want to immerse themselves in the “ Harry Potter ” world again – the Complete Collection in the Hogwarts Express special edition is currently cheaper on Amazon.

But Daniel Radcliffe still left an obligatory and unsurprising little back door open – only probably for a much later point in time: “I will never say never, but the ‘Star Wars’ people had like 30, 40 years before they came back. It was just 10 for me.” So maybe in 20 years Radcliffe will change his mind, and of course there’s always the possibility that Warner Bros. will come up with enough compelling arguments to get the actor to return sooner — big ones You shouldn’t get your hopes up after the current interview.
Small consolation: The «Potter» reunion special
Daniel Radcliffe has nonetheless dived back into the Potter world recently, but only in the reunion special, Return To Hogwarts , which you can watch on Sky. He explained to the NY Times that he was able to enjoy it precisely because «Potter» is no longer part of his daily life.

As is the case for many stars who are firmly associated with an iconic role at a very young age, it was not easy for Radcliffe to shake off his Harry Potter image — ultimately, choosing more outlandish roles is fine with him well done, like the farting corpse in Swiss Army Man , the devil in Horns , or the man with guns bolted to his hands in Guns Akimbo .
Daniel Radcliffe will soon be seen in cinemas alongside Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum in the adventure comedy The Lost City , which also prompted the NY Times interview. Lost City starts April 21, 2022, here’s the trailer:
