The report also claims that the studio is considering turning the 5-hour play into a potential new trilogy. It should be noted that the NY Daily News is not the most reliable of sources, and the validity of this report isn’t necessarily rock solid. For one, the timeline doesn’t make sense. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3 is currently slated for release on November 20, 2020—there’s no way the studio would infringe upon this new wizarding world franchise by upstaging it with the release of a brand new Harry Potter movie in the same year. Moreover, Radcliffe will only be 31 in the year 2020. Potter is in his 40s in the play. Now movie magic could certainly age up the actor, but with the Fantastic Beasts franchise already underway, why rush into things with a performer who is busy exploring all different kinds of roles at the moment? Will Warner Bros. turn Harry Potter and the Cursed Child into a movie? Undoubtedly. It’s a new piece of canon material that wraps up the Harry Potter story in dynamic and spectacular fashion, plus it’s based on a story that Rowling herself helped concoct. But are the particulars of this rumor to be believed? I’d wager no."
