Fans celebrated when “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. Pictures announced that the Potter screen universe would live on with an adaptation of her own 2001 book “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”.
‘Beasts’ though was just one of two ‘faux textbooks’ from the film series that Rowling turned into their own works in 2001 for British charity Live Aid.
The other was “Quidditch Through the Ages,” a book which traces the history of the wizarding sport Quidditch, as well as the earliest broom-based games by a fictitious author named Kennilworthy Whisp.
Now, Bleeding Cool reports that Warners has registered several new trademarks for film and TV adaptations.
Those trademarks include the already announced ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’ and that books fictitious author Newt Scamander. However, they also include ‘Quidditch Through The Ages,’ ‘Kennilworthy Whisp,’ and the names of several Quidditch teams within the book like ‘Wimbourne Wasps,’ ‘Chudley Cannons,’ and ‘Kenmare Kestrels’.
There’s even a registering of ‘The Tales of Beetle the Bard,’ the wizarding world fairytale book that was a key element of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”.
This has led to speculation that another film might be announced revolving around the genesis of Quidditch, or that elements from the ‘Quidditch’ book could be incorporated into the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ film.
