What’s going on?
- No writers or actors have been attached to the project.
- There’s no word about when in the “Harry Potter” timeline the show will take place.
- The series seems in such early development that there are questions about whether or not the series will be released at all, according to Variety.
In fact, The Hollywood Reporter explains that the “broad ideas have been discussed as part of the early-stage exploratory meetings.”
- “There are no ‘Harry Potter’ series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform,” HBO Max and Warner Bros., said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
A look at the numbers
It’s no surprise “Harry Potter” would be added to the streaming service conversation since it’s another intellectual property that people enjoy — similar to “Star Wars” or Marvel, which are both receiving their own series on Disney+.
