Speculation has been rife that the show will eventually be turned into a movie or two, and now those rumours have resurfaced after a recent tweet by JK Rowling.

JK Rowling caused mayhem among Harry Potter fans yesterday after a cryptic tweet that appeared to hint at more material from the prolific writer.

"Sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places #HarryPotter #CursedChild" Rowling posted.

"Just as she created a generation of lifelong readers with the Harry Potter book series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is now doing the same for theatre, with over half of our audiences worldwide being first time theatre-goers of all ages", said Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender, producers of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

One person wrote: "Oh My God, Please say the famous trio is returning, Please say it, JK".

While a fourth added: "Oh my god". You gave us a true gift in Cursed Child and no one can take that away.

Unfortunately, Duff didn't say whether Lamberg will appear in the sequel series, but it's not totally out of the realm of possibility.

However, since then Pottermore have tweeted: "There is something exciting coming later on from @CursedChildNYC, but it's not a movie..."

Given that Pottermore only mentioned the New York City production of Cursed Child instead of the United Kingdom one, it's possible that it relates to the Broadway play. "The show has not changed ownership".

Looking at the NY show's rebranding with the Wizarding World logo from the film franchise, the studio could very well make a Harry Potter and the Cursed Child movie in the near future.

That doesn't mean Warner Bros. won't make a Cursed Child movie someday. "Their role has not changed". A Cursed Child movie rumor still spread, along with ideas on what else J.K. Rowling could've returned to Twitter to tease.

Receiving universal acclaim for its breathtaking magic and stage wizardry, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the most awarded play in theatre history, winning 25 major US awards, including six Tony Awards with one for Best Play and 24 major theatre awards in the United Kingdom being the most awarded show in the history of Britain's Olivier Awards, winning a record-breaking nine awards including Best New Play.

The stage show, which picks up the Potter story 19 years after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, finds Harry and wife Ginny (nee Weasley) all grown up and now with children of their own, the eldest of which, Albus Potter, is about to start at Hogwarts.
