Tom Felton chills out at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Media Preview Day held at the Universal Studios Hollywood on Wednesday afternoon (April 6) in Universal City, Calif.
The 28-year-old actor met back up with James and Oliver Phelps and Evanna Lynch to chat all about Harry Potter.
When asked about spin-offs that they’d love to see happen, Tom pinpointed one on Gilderoy Lockhart.
“He’s one of the chaps from the second film. We haven’t heard from him in a while so that would be fun to see,” he shared. “As far as my own spinoffs go – good Lord, I wouldn’t know where to start.”
Evanna picked out Harry’s parents, Lily and James: “We only get flashes of them in the books…I’d love to know what kind of people they were and what they were like.”

We’re so excited about the announcement that more Harry Potter is on the way, but first, J.K. Rowling wants to clarify some information about the upcoming Cursed Child “book.”
The 50-year-old author first clarified that the book is not a book, but rather, a script in book form.
“To be clear! The SCRIPT of #CursedChild is being published. #NotANovel #NotAPrequel ????,” J.K. tweeted.
She also wanted to address that the book is not a prequel to the story.
“The script will be in book form, true, but it’s still #NotAPrequel because it’s set #19YearsLater,” she wrote on her Twitter account. She also clarified that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the prequel to Harry Potter.
The London Harry Potter stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II, is set to be published as a book as well!
The book will arrive in the form of an “early rehearsal script” of the upcoming West End show, and will be available to purchase on July 31, 2016.
The play was conceived by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany. Jack wrote the play, which is set to debut in London this summer. So, while it’s not a true Harry Potter book, we’ll still be brought back into that world!
The play picks up 19 years after the epilogue from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” Harry is now an overworked Ministry of Magic employee, while his son Albus struggles with his family legacy.
