Warner Bros and HBO Max have denied reports of a Harry Potter series in early development at the streaming platform.
Earlier, multiple media reports stated that a spin-off is in early development.
However, Warner Bros have released a statement denying the reports. “There are no ‘Harry Potter’ series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform,” read the statement.
The Harry Potter is one of the most popular movie franchises and book series. The seven-book series from J K Rowling sold over 500 million copies worldwide and the immense popularity of the potter-world led to the eight-film franchise, which grossed over $8 billion worldwide.
