Harry Potter and the Cursed Child artwork

Although the first Harry Potter prequel is heading to a theater near you in the form of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the official, J.K. Rowling-approved sequel is heading to the London stage. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is going to be an in-demand sensation that only a small fraction of Potter fans will get the chance to see, but that only makes it all the more special, right? Anyway, Rowling took to Twitter to tease the rehearsals of the show, which follow the characters from the original series as adults, and shared a sketch of the new wands owned by Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Draco.

Meanwhile, Harry Potter series and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them director David Yates is already planning another sequel of his own. His new film, The Legend of Tarzan, opens this summer and he apparently feels good enough about it to start talking about a potential follow-up. Following a screening of footage from the film, he told the audience:

It’s a highly entertaining, and very moving two hours in the cinema which will take us to a place that you haven’t been to in a while, and one which we’d like to take you to again. If you come and watch it. We have an outline, which we’re really excited about.

Naturally, a sequel will only come to fruition if the film is a hit and that’s far from a sure thing. Yates will be fine no matter what (he does have Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them waiting in the wings right now), but you’d be hard-pressed to find too many people who are legitimately excited to go see The Legend of Tarzan right now. The people at the studio’s marketing department have their work cut out them.
