“Harry Potter” fans, a prequel for your favourite movie is brewing… “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the 2001 J.K. Rowling book will be made into a film and will be produced by David Heyman (“Harry Potter” films producer). The question is… are we going to see the “Harry Potter” cast in it? According to MTV, Emma Watson is up for a cameo in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

During their interview with Emma Watson for “Noah,” MTV found out that Watson is excited to be part of the upcoming movie.

“I would definitely be up for a cameo!” Watson said in the MTV interview.

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is a 45-page book, which is a kind of textbook for Hogwarts students. This means that it will be a bit difficult to show the adventures of Harry, Ron and Hermione as the book happened before their time.

However, a cameo doesn’t really mean that Watson would play the part of Hermione once again.

In an interview with J.K Rowling for Wonderland Magazine, the author jokingly said that she would be very happy to bring back Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson only if they were off in the background in heavy makeup.

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is about the author of the book, Newt Scamander and his adventures in the science of “magizoology.”

Currently, the movie project has no director yet or a planned release date from Warner Bros. Production of the movie has not started yet but Rowling is very excited about this, hence, she agreed to be the screenwriter for the film.

J.K Rowling fans, keep your fingers crossed for this one, and would you like to see the Harry Potter trio in a movie once again? We think that would be lovely.

Even if we won’t see the Harry Potter gang altogether again in a J.K Rowling movie adaptation, the trio will forever live in our hearts. But who knows? We’re not entirely closing our minds to that kind of idea, because that would be amazing. J.K Rowling’s brilliant creations never disappoint and we’re so excited to see another extraordinary magical film on-screen anytime soon!

Surely, the news of Emma Watson being up for a cameo in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is pretty exciting for “Harry Potter” fans. As of the moment, you can see Emma Watson in “Noah” hitting theatres on March 28, 2014. Watch out for the latest updates on “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” here on Movie News Guide (MNG).
