It’s been reported that Warner Bros. Pictures is working on three new Harry Potter shows that could be coming to HBO Max.
This report comes to us from Giant Freakin Robot and their track record is pretty good of late.
It also ties in quite nicely with what we were told some time ago about a live-action Harry Potter series being in the works for HBO Max.
We were also told that Warner Bros. Pictures is looking to adapt Harry Potter And The Cursed Child for the big screen.
These things could all be linked, which would be fun.
They could be looking to make three series for HBO Max and one of them might be an adaptation of the Harry Potter stage play.
The Harry Potter franchise is one of the biggest in the world.
It would be rather unusual for Warners to just leave it with the Fantastic Beasts movies.
That franchise is starting to see its box office returns dwindle slightly.
And, with the whole Johnny Depp fiasco, I’m not sure if Fantastic Beasts 3 is going to do any better than the second movie.
Looks like Warners is making three new Harry Potter shows for HBO Max
The second film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Warner… I mean, The Crimes Of Grindelwald underperformed at the box office.
It didn’t come close to reaching the previous movie’s box office takings.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them managed to gross over $814 million at the box office.
The sequel managed to bring in just over $654 million, which is quite a lot less money than what the first film amassed.
Anyway, it seems as though Warner Bros. Pictures is starting to look away from the Fantastic Beasts movies.
They want to develop more Harry Potter projects and I think having new series on HBO Max is the right way to go.
