Warner Bros. trademarks 'Harry Potter' names for possible spin-off movies
Is Warner Bros. preparing for even more "Harry Potter" movies? That definitely seems like the idea with several new trademarks the studio has submitted. After the news that author J.K. Rowling was writing a new "Harry Potter" universe film, the studio naturally trademarked "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," the fake book the movie is based on, along with it's author, "Newt Scamander."
Now they've added a couple more book titles referenced in the "Harry Potter" series though, "Tales of Beedle The Bard" and "Quidditch Through The Ages." Additionally, they're trademarked the Quidditch team names "Wimbourne Wasps," "Chudley Cannons" and "Kenmare Kestrels," the Telegraph reports. The studio also trademarked the name of the fictitious Quidditch expert "Kennilworthy Whisp."
So, are we hoping for a movie that follows Quidditch in some way? The names were all trademarked for media purposes, including live-action films and reality TV, among other uses. Maybe someone decided to turn Quidditch into an actual sporting league. Sure, it would be hard to figure out that flying broom thing for a bunch of muggles, but it's not like "Potter" fans haven't already come up with their own version of the game.
Only time will tell what comes next for "Harry Potter," but it seems like the possibilities are endless.
