Posted November 17, 2018 05:16:00 The seventh and final installment of the Harry Potters saga, ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,’ will not be made into a live-action film, instead going in to DVD and Blu-ray in 2019.
It has been revealed that Warner Bros have not reached an agreement with the studio on a final version of the film, despite the success of the first one.
Warner Bros has already released a second instalment of the series, ‘The Cursed Child,’ to a relatively low critical reception, although its box office performance has been stellar.
In 2017, Warner Bros were looking to make the Harry potter films a feature film, but this is now the first time that Warner have made a Harry Potter film into a movie.
“Warner Bros has not reached a definitive agreement on the script for the seventh and last film in the HarryPotters saga,” a Warner Bros spokesperson told ABC News.
“This is an exciting development for the HarryPOTTER franchise, and we are excited to be collaborating with our partners to bring this story to a truly cinematic conclusion.”
The final film will feature a different cast, as Harry Potter and his friends are being left out of the story.
“The Cursed Children” follows the adventures of the new school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The film has been written by series creator and director David Yates, and it stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Emma Thompson, Rupert Friend, Tom Felton, Hugo Weaving, Tom Hardy, Toby Jones, Harry Styles, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Tom Holland, David Oyelowo, Olivia Colman, Cate Blanchett, Ciarán Hinds, Rupert Evans, James Nesbitt, Dominic West, Ben Whishaw, Emma Thomas, Colin Firth, Daniel Radford, Jack Reynor, Sophie Turner, Colin Baker, Ben Barnes, J.K. Simmons, James Marsters, John Hurt, and Sophie Turner.
Harry Potter: Cursed Child will be released on DVD and on Blu-Ray in 2019, with an eventual theatrical release.
