The cast of Harry Potter is rumored to have reunited for a short film being developed for a Florida theme park, according to The Huffington Post.
The internet was flooded with endless speculation when rumors surfaced that Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint were reuniting for a secret Harry Potter film. Many believed a ninth entry in the franchise was soon headed to theaters.
Instead of another full-length feature, the next Harry Potter film will be released exclusively to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park.
While details about the project are few and far between at the moment, an anonymous source told The Sun that Radcliffe, Watson, and Grint were thrilled about working together once again.
“The cast have really enjoyed getting back together — they are so tight-knit,” the anonymous individual explained. “The shooting schedule is nowhere near as long as the films, so though filming has been intense, the stars have enjoyed being able to pop in and out.”
Hypable reports that Helena Bonham Carter, also known to Harry Potter fans as Bellatrix Lestrange, is rumored to be among the those coming back for the theme park mini-movie. However, representatives for the actress stated they were unaware of the project.
The footage allegedly being shot at Leavesden Studios is said to be attached to a proposed Gringotts thrill ride being crafted for the Diagon Alley attraction at Universal Studios in Orlando. Park officials have yet to officially comment on the forthcoming expansion.
The Florida theme park is currently the only one of its kind in existence. However, California is scheduled to receive its very own attraction in 2014. A Japanese version of the park is scheduled to open in 2015.
