TOO MANY EXCITING ELEMENTS TO THIS STORY
We, like the rest of the world who's whiled away hours staring sadly at a screen telling us we're 294828488432th in the queue, haven't seen Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
We bought the book, but we're still holding out hope we'll get lucky and find tickets somehow, so don't want to spoil it yet. Obviously that prob won't happen till approximately 2089, but we CAN DREAM.
So imagine our EXCITEMENT when we heard it could be turning into an actual film just like the other Hazza Pots stories.
According to reports, Warner Bros. are keen to once again secure the rights, and they want Daniel Radcliffe to reprise his role.
Don't we all, Warner Bros.
A source told New York Daily News: "Warners is secretly working on getting the movie rights and a screenplay settled, and of course in their minds only one man should be Harry
"However he has made it clear that his mind is certainly not focused on returning to the role anytime soon — and that could be until he hits 40."
Presumably Daniel Radcliffe is far too busy in roles such as these:
BUT WE HAVE HOPE.
Unfortunately - the looks like the film isn't meant to be after all. A spokesperson said: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a stage play, with no plans for there to be a film."
But in happier news, a few days ago, our heads were well and truly blown off (no bludger involved) by a Harry Potter fan theory about Snape.
Remember when Snape asks Harry the following tricky question to catch him out in his first potions lesson: "Tell me, what would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?"
Nothing more to that than a man with a deep rooted hatred of Harry trying to humiliate him in front of his peers, right?
That's what Tumblr user tomhiddles (TOM HIDDLESTON, IS THAT YOU?) thinks, anyway. He's come up with a pretty darn convincing theory that there's waaaay more to the story.
He wrote the following:
"The first thing Snape asks Harry is 'Potter! What would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?'
"According to Victorian Flower Language, asphodel is a type of lily meaning 'My regrets follow you to the grave' and wormwood means 'absence' and also typically symbolised bitter sorrow. If you combined that, it meant 'I bitterly regret Lily's death'."
WE CANNOT DEAL RN.
Also – we now can't stop picturing Tom Hiddleston pouring obsessively over a Victorian Flower Language book surrounded by Harry Potter merchandise.
