News culture Is the new Harry Potter series a mistake?
The Harry Potter license is not about to say goodbye to us. Following the release of Hogwarts Legacy and the announcement of a Quidditch game, HBO will adapt JK Rowling’s novels for a new series. In this new JV Debate, we’ll wonder if it’s really a good idea.
Remaking Harry Potter movies is really a waste
As we explain to you in the debate at the top of the article, HBO will adapt the novels of JK Rowling a second time, but this time in series. Each book should therefore have the right to a season which will take up the elements of the books. Except that what good is it when the films with Daniel Radcliff already exist. They marked a whole generation and even today, Harry Potter stamped products are snapped up thanks to them. There is no need to reinvigorate the “main story” with a series, given its success when many other ideas could be exploited. The universe is so rich that it is possible to get anything out of it. We saw it with the video game Hogwarts Legacy: The Legacy of Hogwarts which was a real success, but also with the exhibition in Paris which is currently being held or the play which has been sold out for 6 years in London. . In short, the universe is very rich and its fans are still very active. Some have even gone so far as to create fan-films on the origins of their favorite character, because Warner Bros does not exploit this branch of the scenario.
A new adaptation of Harry Potter is a good idea
The first Harry Potter film was released in 2001. Seven other films followed which tell the adventures of the eponymous wizard and his fight against Voldemort. The franchise ended (at the cinema) in 2011, that is to say more than 10 years ago. It might be time to freshen it up. We can assume that this new series will bring a fresh look at the adventures of Harry and will, perhaps, take the time to adapt passages from the underused book (perhaps we will finally see Peeves the poltergeist ?). We know that if The Sorcerer’s School was still a very childish feature film, the sequels have become darker and darker. This new version could go even further in this mature universe, be even more realistic and take advantage of its adult audience. We explain it to you in the video at the top. Additionally, HBO is still planning a large dedication to its programming, so the Harry Potter series could evolve over more than a decade. It is not impossible that he will launch spin-offs in parallel
