Harry Potter fans are all excited about the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them spin-off film. The J.K. Rowling work is predicted to mollify Harry Potter fanatics who have longed for more of the Hogwarts world ever since the credits rolled on Deathly Hallows.

When asked if he might make a cameo appearance in the Fantastic Beasts film, Daniel Radcliffe gave a definite no. But what about coming back to actually play Harry Potter in a full-blown Potter film?

“I don’t know," Radcliffe said, "I really have no idea. I don’t know if J.K. Rowling has any plans to write anymore of the series with Harry as a central character. In the last story she wrote Harry is 35, so I’m not old enough to play that yet. Thank god, too, otherwise I’d definitely be getting asked about that. In terms of Fantastic Beasts though I definitely won’t be showing up in that.”

But now another voice has joined the chorus of those longing for more Harry Potter. Chris Columbus, who directed the Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets films, says he would be up for a new Potter film.

Columbus told Entertainment Weekly, "I would love to go back and do another one. Not 'Fantastic Beasts' as much, which I think is going to be amazing, but I would love to do another movie with those three characters - Harry, Hermione, and Ron."

"I'm just fascinated about what happened to them after the end of the last movie, because then they cut to 18 years ahead. There's 18 years there of great Harry Potter stories. There has to be a great story in Harry's life at that point. Hopefully [J.K. Rowling] will maybe think about doing that. Even if I wouldn't make a movie, I'd still like to read those stories," Colombus said.

For now, fans have Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is set for a release in U.S theaters on November 18, 2016.
