Recently it was announced that Warner Bros and J.K. Rowling were teaming up to turn one of her companion textbooks from the Harry Potter series, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them by Newt Scamander, into a full length film set 70 years before The Boy Who Lived, well, lived.
Now WB’s got another idear to keep the Potter fans wanting more by possibly taking the other companion book, Quidditch Through The Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp, and turning that into either a show or film as well.
Turns out WB’s up to a LOT of trademarking INCLUDING the third companion text The Tales Of Beedle The Bard (below), Quidditch team names Wimbourne Wasps, Chudley Cannons and Kenmare Kestrels as well as the actual name and author of said Quidditch guide for a laundry list of reasons…

I have a headache now after reading all that but I am genuinely curious how they’re gonna squeeze THAT much blood from a stone – or rather 3 books that when combined, total a tad over 200 pages (a.k.a. one-quarter of any Harry Potter novel) but since I DID read all three of these books, I’m also a little excited to see what J.K. and WB do with said materials!
As always, stay tuned.
