Rupert Grint happy to return for Harry Potter sequels

Rupert Grint might be boarding the train to Hogwarts again sometime in the future as the actor says he would be happy to return for more Harry Potter sequels. 

The blockbuster adaptations of JK Rowling’s classic wizarding novels came to an end with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 in 2011. 

Now almost 10 years after fans waved goodbye to the main franchise, Rupert has shared his feelings on revisiting his loveable character Ron Weasley and the young wizard’s best pals Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson). 

Speaking to ComicBook.com, Rupert said: ‘I don’t know. I mean, never say never. I would never say, “Absolutely no”.’ 

He added: ‘It was a huge part of my life and I’m very fond of that character and their stories. So yeah, I mean, I’d be up for it at the right time. I don’t know what capacity that would be, but yeah, we’ll see.’ 

Over the past decade, the HP franchise has expanded to include the West End and Broadway play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which is set decades after the end of the series and focuses on Harry’s son Albus and the family legacy. 

There’s also the movie prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them and the follow-up The Crimes of Grindelwald, which boast a star-studded cast featuring Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Katherine Waterston. 

It’s safe to say, the HP universe still has reach more than two decades after Rowling published the first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. 

The first movie still holds a special place for much of the cast, including Draco Malfoy actor Tom Felton who recently teared up while rewatching the fantasy for the first time in years. 

It may be a while before Rupert, Daniel and Tom appear on-screen together again but the boys did at least reunite IRL last month during a livestream with other cast members. 

Teasing what’s to come from the 20th anniversary celebrations next year, Daniel said: ‘My first thoughts are that this is but a mere preview of the nostalgia we’ll be immersed in next year when it hits 20 years since the first film was released. 

‘I feel like we’ll be doing a lot of reminiscing probably in various forms next year.’
