Harry Potter, written by JK Rowling, is still recognized today as one of the most relevant literary phenomena in modern world literature. There have been videogame adaptations and plays like Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but the entire franchise of the world’s most famous boy wizard is best known for its seven films. According to the latest rumors, according to Valiant Renegade and WDW Pro, Warner Bros would be thinking of producing a complete reboot of the film series.

A Harry Potter reboot: “We expect great things from you, Mr. Harry Potter”

Ollivander said it before Harry bought his wand in Diagon Alley. It’s a scene that talked about the bond between the wizard and his wand, important for future students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, so much so as to be remarked upon by the wand seller himself on several occasions in the literary series. Starting precisely from the first three film adaptations, Harry Potter presented himself to the world as a ten-year-old boy orphaned of father and mother, killed by the ruthless Lord Voldemort and by the Death Eaters, his wicked servants.

Since the first book, the foster family of Harry Potter has always been described as despicable, especially one character in particular: Aunt Petunia, the sister of Lily Evans, who considered the child a deviant. Despite the scene of Harry’s farewell to the Dursleys ne Deathly Hallows has been canceled even if it is available on YouTube, inserting it would have provided further insights on these certainly not appreciated characters. The handshake between Dudley and Harry has remained iconic, especially because we understand the cousin’s real displeasure towards the protagonist. A reboot, if done with intelligence and a greater awareness of the Source material, could be more accurate, explaining details completely ignored in the past. This is a project that, according to Warner Bros., could start in three or a maximum of five years, and it’s not entirely clear if JK Rowling will be involved.

A reboot wouldn’t come too soon and would make sense for two reasons: the first to include works connected to the Marauders, the group formed by James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupine and Peter Pettigrew. This would also allow to deepen the secret bond between Severus Snape and Lily Evans. In addition to delving into the story of the wizard throughout his life, a possible reboot would explain elements that David Yates, director of the last three films, was unable to include, such as Severus Snape’s past and the breakup with Lily Evans , a very important moment present in the books. The second reason, however, is linked to younger fans: Warner Bros. thinks, in fact, that it could be a wise choice especially for how the world of entertainment has changed in recent years. especially with regard to raising awareness of certain topicstelling them with greater knowledge of the facts even to those who have never seen the saga of the 2000s.

Sure, someone will be forced to get used to new faces and differences with the original film saga, but if the goal is precisely to offer a broader view of the entire world created by JK Rowling, then it could be a good choice. And what is really missing, among the many things that would be useful, is the story between Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindwald, a love suffocated by regrets that in Fantastic Beastsunfortunately, it has completely faded into the background, as narrated inaccurately.
