Harry Potter Spinoff Talk Heats Up, Warner Bros. Trademarks Multiple Titles

by at .  Updated at . Comments

More magical news today out of Hollywood:

With JK Rowling announcing last month that she'll be writing a Harry Potter spinoff film based on the fictional Hogwarts textbook "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," movie fans now have strong reasons to believe that many more Potter-based movies are also on the way.

Warner Bros. has trademarked not only the title "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," but also a couple other names:

  • "The Tales of Beedle the Bard"
  • "Quidditch Through the Ages"

Both written and published as a spinoff novels by Rowling, while the studio has also trademarked Quidditch team names Wimbourne Wasps, Chudley Cannons and Kenmare Kestrels.

What do these moves mean for the future of the Harry Potter universe?

Possibly nothing. A trademark certainly doesn't mean that a movie is on the way.

All we know for certain at the moment is that Newt Scamander will serve as the protagonist in "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," though no release or production date has been set for the spinoff film.
