As readers are aware, there have been many reports flying on the net regarding a possible new mini-Harry Potter movie starring the Trio, and supposedly written by J.K. Rowling for the upcoming Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park. Thanks to Warner Brothers, who let us know this rumor is completely FALSE, as they sent us the following statement on this matter:

“J.K. Rowling continues to be very supportive and involved with the plans underway for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida. Contrary to recent press reports, she has not written scripts for any films based on the Harry Potter ‘prequel’ (recently written and sold for charity) or otherwise, as part of the theme park or any other purpose.

We are working hard to make The Wizarding World of Harry Potter an exciting and authentic experience for all fans and guests. For more information about the park, please visit unversalorlando.com/harrypotter/.

The Leaky Cauldron is not associated with J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros., or any of the individuals or companies associated with producing and publishing Harry Potter books and films.
