When it comes to remakes and reboots, Hollywood has never refrained from milking well-known properties for as much money as they can. And it appears that Harry Potter is the latest brand to succumb to this common habit.

According to the newest Twitter leak from @Wdwpro, Warner Bros. Discovery is looking to revive the Harry Potter franchise. They intend to expand it and continue the mainstream storyline instead of branching it out further. Given the history of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movies, this might be a strategic decision.

While it’s uncertain whether the original seven novels will be rebooted anytime soon, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav is apparently interested in adapting Harry Potter and the Cursed Child as a story set after the events of the Deathly Hallows films. “We haven’t made a Harry Potter film in over 15 years. Over the last 25 years, the DC and Harry Potter films have significantly contributed to Warner Bros. Motion Pictures’ income, Zaslav stated.

During Warner Bros. Discovery’s third-quarter earnings call, Zaslav revealed that he would be willing to work with famous author J.K. Rowling on future Harry Potter projects. Following Rowling’s anti-trans remarks, some performers from the Wizarding World series, notably Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, have stopped interacting with the author. Furthermore, Avalanche Studio, the creators of the upcoming video game Hogwarts Legacy, denied her participation in the development process.
