Is It Too Early For a ‘Harry Potter’ Reboot?

Our mission at SAW is to foster conversations about this thing we all love (or love to hate): film/TV. Many of our features are designed with you in mind. Your opinions, to be more to the point. You have ’em. We want to hear ’em.

Question of the Day (QOTD) is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a film/TV-related question that we put to you, the reader. The comments section below is like the feedback box at work; except, in this example, we actually read what you write and care about what you have to say.


The cast of Harry Potter celebrated its 20th anniversary last January. However, it has only been 12 years since the final installment was released.

There have been many shake-ups at Warner Bros. in recent months under the new leadership of David Zaslav. Many movies have been getting canceled and a lot of television shows have been getting removed from HBOMax.

It appears that WB is looking to make new Harry Potter material for a new generation. After the disappointment of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, which underperformed with each new installment, it’s understandable that they would be more than inclined to go back and resurrect The Boy Who Lived.

So, the question I ask today is: Is it too early for a Harry Potter reboot?


I’m going to have to say: No, it is not too early for a Harry Potter reboot. However, instead of a new movie series, I wouldn’t mind seeing it become a TV show similar to that of Game of Thrones, with each season consisting of 8-10 episodes. I feel it would help to flesh out the characters and storylines (especially those of the later books).


So what about you, screenagers? Is it too early for a Harry Potter reboot?

I’ll see you in the trenches.
