Warner Brothers has settled a lawsuit, dating back to 2005, with the Winnipeg folk group known as “The Wyrd Sisters,” where the band had previously attempted to have the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire blocked from release in Canada.

The Wyrd Sisters tried to block the 2005 release of “Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire” when they found out that the movie, like the book on which it is based, was to feature a rock group called either The Weird Sisters or The Wyrd Sisters.

Warner Brothers ended up removing references to the wizard band in the movie, but the suit continued over the previous few years, finally ending in a settlement, the details of which are currently unknown.

As is typical with this kind of lawsuit, the “Wyrd Sisters” name is hardly unique. The band first came into being in 1990, two years after the 1988 publication of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novel by the same name. Of course, “Weird Sisters,” referring to the three witches, were mentioned in William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, which dates back to the 1600s. Shakespeare, in turn, got the name from the ancient triple goddesses that go by names such as the Weird Sisters, the Fates, or the Morrígan.
