Radcliffe told The New York Times that he agreed to appear in HBO Max’s Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts special because “it’s not a part of my day-to-day existence anymore.” The actor isn’t very eager on returning to the Cursed Child franchise.

“I’m reaching to the point where I feel like I got out of Potter OK and I’m very content with where I am now, and going back would be such a huge adjustment in my life,” he stated. “I’m never going to say never, but the Star Wars guys had like 30, 40 years before they went back. For me, it’s only been 10. It’s not something I’m really interested in doing right now” he further added.
