The Tales of Beedle the Bard A little while ago, "Harry Potter" overlord J.K. Rowling decided to write "Tales of Beedle the Bard", the formerly fictional book mentioned in the final installment in the series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". Unsurprisingly, the limited edition books are selling like there's no tomorrow and now, the cool peeps over at "Cinema Blend" have learned that Warner Bros. is trying to figure out a way to bring these tales to the big screen. Because why the hell not. The book includes five stories - "The Wizard and the Hopping Pot", "The Fountain of Fair Fortune", "The Warlock's Hairy Heart", "Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump" and "The Tale of the Three Brothers" - and none are connected in any way so WB has their work cut out for them. But we're talking mad cash here so they'll undoubtedly figure that shit out.

Extra Tidbit: In Celtic society, a bard was a professional poet, paid by a monarch to praise the sovereign's activities, though through the years it's taken the meaning of an epic author/singer/narrator like say William Shakespeare, who's known as The Bard.

I'm with Sonny, that could be really interesting. If they try and do it as a full feature and release it at the cinema I'm not sure it'll do well, but perhaps as a bunch of animated short films for the Deathly Hallows Ultimate Box Set (that will no doubt be needed, since it's split into two films) it'd be a really great little special feature.

They should make it an animated movie with 5 parts each by a different director.
