Last month, it was rumoured that cast members from the “Harry Potter” films had reunited at the Warner Bros. Studios in Hertfordshire, East England, to work on a “secret project”. This project may be a short film that would screen at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Florida and the “Potter” theme parks currently under construction in California and Japan. Those rumours may turn out to be true: actress Helena Bonham Carter, who played Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange, recently hinted that she is reprising that role for this new project.
“I’m not sure what we’re allowed to say. I think we’ve been gagged!” she said when asked about her involvement in the project. Quizzed further if fans can take that as confirmation she is involved in the project, Helena added, “You can read into it what you will.”
This is very interesting news, indeed. Given Carter’s involvement, it is likely the new short film would take place before the so-called Final Battle of Hogwarts. Perhaps the new footage would be part of some sort of ride, or it might be part of a 3D experience, much like what Captain EO was for the Disney theme parks.
What are your thoughts on this news? Would you like to see more “Potter”-related films or even short films? What do you think may be in this short film? If you could give suggestions, what would you like to see in such short films?
