It is rumored that in 2020, Warner Bros. wants to create a movie adaptation of the Harry Potter stageplay. Here is my castlist (or wishlist) for the movie.

BEWARE: This list might contain spoilers.

NOTE 1: Some actors might not be in the actual script, but might be on my list due to the possibilty of having a cameo in the movie. Next to said actors, I will mention at which point they could possibly appear.
