It is worth mentioning that this production will not be a spin-off or continuation of the eight films released between 2001 and 2011, but a new adaptation of the stories of J.K. Rowling.
The 57-year-old writer was excited about this new project, in which HBO Max promised to preserve the integrity of its books: “HBO Max’s commitment to preserving the integrity of my books is important to me, and I am eager to be part of this new adaptation that will allow a degree of depth and detail that only a long-form television series offers.”
Breaking with the established
On the other hand, it is expected that the production seeks to reach the new generations with certain changes that could be controversial for traditional fans.
Aspects such as: the color of skin and sexual orientation of the characters, would be the most striking aspects to be modified by the directors of the series.
When does it premiere and how many seasons will it be?
At the moment there is no exact date for the premiere of the Harry Potter series, although it is speculated with the end of 2024 or the beginning of 2025.
With eight Harry Potter books and eight films, HBO Max is expected to publish one season for each book, as long as the material is well received by the audience from the start.
