Following the huge success of the Harry Potter franchise, there was no doubt that the studio was going to try and find a way to squeeze even more money out of it. So, it was no surprise when a number of Harry Potter spin-offs were mentioned, with JK Rowling now writing the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter
These has led to suggestions that Daniel Radcliffe could return for the spin-off in his role as Harry Potter, something which the actor himself has spoken about. Daniel told The Hollywood Reporter, "I don't think I'm going to be coming back. We can't be doing these characters when we're 40, so there has to be a line drawn."
However, he did not rule out returning at some point in the future, "I never know what Jo [Rowling] is going to write, but at the moment I'm in the same position that everyone else is in - waiting to hear what information is coming out because I don't know anything about these new films."
Harry Potter characters
It is highly unlikely that any of the characters from the Harry Potter franchise will appear in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as, while the movie is centred around the same wizarding world, it will be set decades before Harry Potter.
