For the last year, Harry Potter fans have been curious about the new content coming to HBO Max, but a recent merger between HBO’s parent company Warner Bros and Discovery left the fate of such projects up in the air. Now, it has come to light that Warner Bros. Discovery President David Zaslav is still heavily interested in developing “fresh” Harry Potter content for HBO Max.
Previously, former Warner Bros. CEO Ann Sarnoff shared that the studio executives have been in talks with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling about new content that would expand the Wizarding World for fans. “We would love to develop more original Harry Potter series, and we regularly talk to JK Rowling and her team. It’s got to be right though. Whatever we do has to be true to the canon, and true to the ethos of the Wizarding World, and who Harry is.”
