Are you preparing a Harry Potter series?
This is stated in The Hollywood Reporter where, with the help of information obtained by sources that they have not been able to reveal, they suggest that HBO Max is beginning to start with the preparations to give life to a new series based on the stories of the famous books.
For now the only details that point to it is that it will be a series with real actors and not an animation series, but the rest of the details are quite scarce, basically because the idea has just begun to take shape. In fact, the proposal is so green, that HBO Max and Warner have wanted to go to the step denying the information, ensuring that there is no Harry Potter series in development.
But of course, if we pull picaresque, maybe with “we are not developing any series” they mean that they have not started shooting, but that does not imply that they are not studying locations, contemplating possible casting for the characters or defining the plot and the orientation that the film will have.
To be exact, the source of The Hollywood Reporter assures that HBO executives have initiated conversations with possible writers who can put various ideas on the table. At the moment everything seems to be a first contact, and there is not even a chosen writer, but nothing denies that the project or the idea does not follow its course.
One more piece for a gigantic puzzle
The arrival of Harry Potter in series format would be a tremendous boost for HBO Max. With Game of Thrones, Sex and the City, the DC Comics movies and the imminent recording of the Friends meeting (filming is expected to start in March) or House of the Dragon, the offer offered by the service would grow exponentially with the adventures at Hogwarts, so there is little doubt that with the idea on the table this will not come to fruition.
A maze of licenses
To all this, we should add the complicated situation of the licenses of the wizard Potter. Rowling, as a good possessive mother, keeps the franchise in her possession, and it is she who is winding up the different agreements that are signed with her creations. The cocoa that is assembled is such that the current situation contemplates a 7-year NBCUniversal deal with Warner Bros Domestic TV Distribution to be able to broadcast the contents of Wizaring World through its Peacock service, and another parallel agreement from HBO Max that lasted 3 months, just to boost the launch of the service in its premiere.
It is clear that Warner is interested in continuing to move everything that the Harry Potter universe contemplates, so considering that the NBCUniversal contract ends this year, everything seems to indicate that there is something brewing in the studios.
