Letting go of the past can be a struggle, especially when you’re a die-hard Harry Potter fan who still binge watches the old films and re-reads the books as if they were only released yesterday. *sobs longingly for the good old days*
As if our separation anxiety couldn’t get any worse, Daniel Radcliffe talked about playing Harry Potter again. What the actor told The Hollywood Reporter about reprising his role as our beloved bespectacled hero is messing with our emotions and we’re on the verge of having a Hagrid-sized emotional meltdown.
Um, who else is totally confused?!
Does that mean Radcliffe’s up for another round of wizardry or not?
Again with the confusion, Har- er, Daniel! We don’t know whether to hang onto hope or let our dreams of a possible reprisal wither away and die.
“There’s a part of me that’s like, some things are better left untouched. If we went back to Potter, there’s a chance we’d make what Star Wars: The Force Awakens was to the original Star Wars, but there’s also the chance that we’d make Phantom Menace,” Radcliffe said jokingly. “So I don’t want to go back to anything like that and maybe sour what people have already loved.”
Basically, Radcliffe seems to be playing a game of of “Maybe I will, maybe I won’t,” with our tender hearts which frankly has us more exhausted and frazzled than ever.
The only reasonable response to this emotional roller coaster is to do what any Potterhead would do: sulk (because obviously), save our coins for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and prepare to play an ungodly amount of Harry Potter Go.
