There have been rumors about a “Harry Potter” live-action TV series coming to HBO Max, and fans of the movies and books aren’t too fond of the idea. 

A source told The Hollywood Reporter that HBO Max and WarnerMedia, its parent company, are in the very early stages of ideas and nothing has been set in stone yet. There have been no deals.

“There are no ‘Harry Potter’ series in development the studio or on the streaming platform,” HBO Max and Warner Bros. told THR.

The conversations the streaming platforms have been having don’t include any writers or actors, so nothing except an idea. 

Fans of the movie series and books have shared their thoughts about a possible series via social media, and most of the responses are saying to lay the idea to bed. 

Many are also upset with the fact that J.K. Rowling, the creator of “Harry Potter” would again be in the spotlight and making more money. She’s made various comments on the transgender community, claiming that young girls supposedly transition to avoid sexism and that she fears for her safety if trans people are allowed in women's bathrooms and dressing rooms.

The inital eight films grossed more than $7 billion worldwide when released. “Fantastic Beasts,” the prequel film series, has grossed $814 million worldwide and is set to release three more movies in the near future.

“Harry Potter” has extended from the movies and books to things like video games, a whole theme park and even an Ulta beauty line. Under an expanded deal with WarnerMedia made in 2013, Rowling still profits from all of it.
