Daniel Radcliffe, the British actor who brought Harry Potter to life in the blockbuster film series based on J.K. Rowling’s books, has spoken about the possibility of reprising his role as the famous wizard in the new TV series being prepared by Max. In an interview with Access Hollywood, Radcliffe said he hasn’t had any conversations about it and that he would find it very strange to appear in the series, which will have a completely new cast. “I think it’s very much like with Sherlock Holmes, that there will always be new versions and interpretations of the story. So I’m very excited to see what other people do with it,” said the actor, who compared the Harry Potter phenomenon to that of the celebrated detective. Radcliffe also expressed his desire for the series to be a success and pass the torch to a new generation of fans. “But I don’t think they need me to do it,” he added. The actor, who currently stars in the comedy Miracle Workers alongside Steve Buscemi, has moved away from his most iconic role since the saga ended in 2011 and has explored other genres and formats in film, theater and television.
A new series based on the Harry Potter books is reportedly in the works, according to sources close to the project. The series, which is still in the early stages of development, would be a live-action adaptation of the beloved fantasy novels by J.K. Rowling. The series would explore new stories and characters in the wizarding world, while also paying homage to the original saga. The series is said to be a collaboration between Warner Bros., the studio behind the Harry Potter films, and HBO Max, the streaming service that owns the rights to the franchise. No official announcement has been made yet, but fans are already speculating about the possible plot, cast and release date of the series.
Harry Potter is one of the most popular and influential fantasy series of all time. Written by J.K. Rowling, the series follows the adventures of a young wizard and his friends as they face the dark forces of Lord Voldemort, who seeks to destroy them and the magical world they live in. The series consists of seven novels, published between 1997 and 2007, as well as several spin-off works, such as the Fantastic Beasts films and the Cursed Child play. The series has sold over 500 million copies worldwide and has been translated into more than 80 languages. It has also inspired a huge fandom, a theme park, a Broadway musical, and a film franchise that grossed over $9 billion at the box office.
