Will Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint one day return to the roles that made them international stars? It is in any case the dream of many Harry Potter fans and the interpreter of Ron would not be against … On one condition!

In the meantime, it is thanks to Fantastic Beasts 3 that the saga will soon return to the cinema:
