'New Harry Potter trailer' set in 2024 features Dumbledore and shows Harry all grown up

'New Harry Potter trailer' set in 2024 features Dumbledore and shows Harry all grown up

Well, Radcliffe did tell us 'never say never' about another film

A new Harry Potter ‘trailer’ for 2024 not only shows the boy wizard all grown up, but also features Dumbledore.

Sure, it might sound too good to be true, but Potterheads are pretty excited about it.

While it’s currently only available on stage and on the bookshelves, this teaser for a ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ film offers a ‘sneak peek’ into what could happen next in the Wizarding World.

Ok, some things are too good to be true, like this incredible Home Alone 3 trailer, and this Cursed Child teaser is sadly the same, as it’s created by AI.

But now Harry Potter fans want it to actually be made because it looks so good.

During the trailer, we see a spooky looking Hogwarts while (presumably) Harry’s little lad asks: “Dad, what if I have got into Slytherin?”

And then, despite the character dying in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Dumbledore appears.

“Memory is everything,” he says, “without it we are blind.”

Fans want the film for real.

An all grown-up (and rather haggard-looking to be honest), Daniel Radcliffe is also shown before a female voice says: “Awful things happen to wizards who meddle with time, Harry.”


Despite the play running in London for a while now, there hasn’t been a confirmed film release for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Back in 2022, Radcliffe said to The New York Times that another Harry Potter is ‘not something [he is] really interested in doing right now’. Although he did include: “Never say never.”

The play published in 2016 is set 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and follows the son of Harry, Albus Severus Potter.

Rowling’s referred to it as ‘the eighth Harry Potter story’.

While it doesn’t look like we’ll get this as film any time soon, Warner Bros. is working on a TV series reboot of the franchise. So, that’s something for fans to look forward to, I guess.

For now, we’ll just have to live vicariously through the likes of these fake AI trailers as viewers say this is the best one they’ve ‘ever’ seen.

Plenty say they’ve ‘love for a new Harry Potter movie to come out’ and one puts: “I always wanted to see the characters as adults’.

Another writes: “That's cool I really do hope they actually come out with a new movie like this in the movie franchise.”

What do you think? Would you watch a full film of this?
