Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he won't be making a return to the wizarding world with an appearance in JK Rowling's new film project.

The 24-year-old actor insists that he will not take a role in a film series based on the Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which is set 70 years before the Potter franchise.

Speaking at a press conference for the new Sky Arts series A Young Doctor's Notebook and Other Stories, Radcliffe said, "I'm sure they're going to have a great time. I'm sure a lot of people will be really excited. I, needless to say, won't be involved. I don't know if any of us [the original Potter cast] will be. I know nothing about it."

The Harry Potter film franchise ran from 2001 until 2011 and became the highest-grossing franchise in history, earning a total of $7,723,431,572 worldwide.
