Harry Potter is Back


David Zaslav, president and CEO of Warner announced he wanted to reboot Harry Potter. This project started in November 2022 and Warner Bros Studios wanted to make a TV show as it has a much longer form of storytelling, which will allow the creators to cover more of the book’s elements that were missing from the movies, and provide a deeper explanation of the characters, the relationships, and world-building. J.K. Rowling will be overseeing the series and will be attached to the project as to not miss any details of the storylines. A brand new cast will also be added, since some of the other actors decided not to work with the writer anymore after her controversial statements.        

Each book in the series will be turned into a season. The seven seasons will be released one after another on the HBO max platform. The first teaser has already been revealed, HBO max has broken the internet with the release of the teaser. Bringing back the original cast, mostly Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson, became a challenge due to the situation surrounding Rowling’s anti-transgender remarks.

“Harry Potter is a cultural phenomenon and it is clear there is such an enduring love and thirst for the Wizarding World,” J.K. Rowling voiced to . “Max’s commitment to preserving the integrity of my books is important to me, and I’m looking forward to being part of this new adaptation which will allow for a degree of depth and detail only afforded by a long form television series”.

The fans have been lashing out in full force over the news. They don’t want any new actors to play their favorite wizarding characters that they’ve grown up with. A lot of the fans are questioning why they had to remake it all, and why they couldn’t have just made a brand new series with the Marauders, or Hogwarts Creators, seeing as that would be more creativity and ideas to explore.
