Chris Columbus, who directed the first two Harry Potter movies, is giving us major hope that Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint could star in another HP film! In a new interview withEntertainment Weekly, the director revealed that he’s down to make a real sequel with the three main characters.

“I would love to go back and do another one. Not Fantastic Beasts as much, which I think is going to be amazing, but I would love to do another movie with those three characters — Harry, Hermione, and Ron. I’m just fascinated about what happened to them after the end of the last movie, because then they cut to 18 years ahead. There’s 18 years there of great Harry Potter stories,” he says.

However, he’s a little bit intimidated by J.K. Rowling!

“I don’t have the courage to actually mention that to her because I have such respect for her. She should do what she wants to do, but I really would love to know what’s in her head about those missing years.”

Um, don’t we all?! While we’re definitely excited to watch the Fantastic Beasts movie, we’re still so curious about what really happened to Harry, Ron, and Hermione in those in-between years.
