Harry Potter series for HBO Max: the first rumors arrive

Are you getting ready a Harry Potter series?

This is said in The Hollywood Reporter the place, with the assist of data obtained by sources that they haven’t been in a position to reveal, they recommend that HBO Max is starting to start out with the preparations to offer life to a brand new series primarily based on the tales of the well-known books.

For now the solely particulars that time to it’s that it will likely be a series with actual actors and never an animation series, however the remainder of the particulars are fairly scarce, principally as a result of the concept has simply begun to take form. In truth, the proposal is so inexperienced, that HBO Max and Warner have needed to go to the step denying the info, making certain that there isn’t a Harry Potter series in improvement.

Define improvement

But after all, if we pull picaresque, possibly with “we aren’t growing any series” they imply that they haven’t began taking pictures, however that doesn’t suggest that they don’t seem to be finding out areas, considering potential casting for the characters or defining the plot and the orientation that the movie could have.

To be precise, the supply of The Hollywood Reporter assures that HBO executives have initiated conversations with potential writers who can put numerous concepts on the desk. At the second every part appears to be a first contact, and there’s not even a selected author, however nothing denies that the venture or the concept doesn’t comply with its course.

One extra piece for a big puzzle

The arrival of Harry Potter in series format can be an incredible increase for HBO Max. With Game of Thrones, Sex and the City, the DC Comics films and the imminent recording of the Friends assembly (filming is predicted to start out in March) or House of the Dragon, the provide supplied by the service would develop exponentially with the adventures at Hogwarts, so there’s little doubt that with the concept on the desk this is not going to come to fruition.

A maze of licenses

To all this, we should always add the sophisticated scenario of the licenses of the wizard Potter. Rowling, as a great possessive mom, retains the franchise in her possession, and it’s she who’s winding up the totally different agreements which might be signed along with her creations. Such is the cocoa that’s assembled, that the present scenario contemplates a 7-year NBCUniversal deal with Warner Bros Domestic TV Distribution to have the ability to broadcast the contents of Wizaring World by way of its Peacock service, and one other parallel settlement from HBO Max that lasted three months, simply to spice up the launch of the service in its premiere.

It is evident that Warner is eager about persevering with to maneuver every part that the Harry Potter universe contemplates, so contemplating that the NBCUniversal contract ends this 12 months, every part appears to point that there’s something brewing in the studios.
