If you didn't get tickets to see the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play in the West End, you can stop crying a river of butterbeer and comfort eating Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans (actually keep doing that), because rumour has it an actual film version is in the works.

As in, ANOTHER HARRY POTTER FILM. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

One wrote: "OH MY GOD PLEASE BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL CAST", another commenting: "YESSSSS MY DREAMS ARE COMING TRUE " and a third adding: "I would love to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on the big screen."

Yeah, we said it was slight. Ahem.

They commented: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a stage play, with no plans for there to be a film."

BOO.
