UPDATE: A source tells E! News that the studio routinely trademarks names and phrases. In this case, it isn't for any particular upcoming project.
More exciting news for Harry Potter fans!
On the heels of the announcement that author J.K. Rowling has teamed up with Warner Bros. to make her screenwriting debut, penning a Harry Potter spinoff series based on her 2001 book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, comes the news that the studio has reportedly trademarked additional book titles referenced in the H.P. novels.
According to Zap2It, Warner Bros. has already trademarked Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as well as the novel's fictitious author, Newt Scamander, but have now added additional titles, including Tales of Beedle the Bard and Quidditch Through The Ages, to the trademark mix.
Additionally, the U.K. Telegraph reports that the studio has trademarked the Quidditch team names Wimbourne Wasps, Chudley Cannons and Kenmare Kestrels, as well as the name of the fictitious Quidditch expert Kennilworthy Whisp.
The names were all trademarked for media purposes, with some reports even speculating that a TV show could be in the works, although any further spinoff plans from the studio are currently unknown.
Regardless, the latest trademark move seems to suggest that there's an endless amount of possibilities for the future of Harry Potter, more than two years after the final film in the franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, hit theaters.
In the meantime, Harry Potter fans can get pumped for the forthcoming spinoff series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which, according to Rowling, "will be inspired by Harry Potter's Hogwarts textbook of the same name, and will feature the book's fictitious author, Newt Scamander."
The 48-year-old author explained that her new flick won't be a prequel or a sequel to Harry Potter's story, "but an extension of the wizarding world. The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt's story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry's gets underway."
