An all-new “Harry Potter” movie is being filmed, but don’t look for this one at your local multiplex. This film will be short and will only screen at “Potter” theme parks.

The shorter movie will reportedly be shown at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Fla. and at the planned theme parks in California, which is scheduled to open in 2014, and Japan, which is scheduled for a 2016 opening. Cast members are reportedly filming at the studios in Hertfordshire in the UK where previous installments were filmed.

What’s the plotline of the new movie? That’s under wraps for now. Guardian writer Ellie Lewis posited that it could show a previously unfilmed portion of Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s hunt for Horcruxes (“Though I'm not sure how much more camping we need to see,” she noted) or possibly delve into the life of the trio after Voldemort was defeated, in which Hermione went back to school and Ron and Harry started to train as Aurors.

Whatever’s being filmed, cast members are reportedly happy about the reunion.

“The cast have really enjoyed getting back together – they are so tight-knit,” a source reportedly told the Sun. “The shooting schedule is nowhere near as long as the films, so though filming has been intense, the stars have enjoyed being able to pop in and out.”
