Harry Potter series: Daniel Radcliffe puts an end to the rumors

In 2012, fans of the “Harry Potter” saga said goodbye to Daniel Radcliffe with “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2”. Since then, there has been “Fantastic Beasts”, but the original cast has not returned. With the announcement of a “Harry Potter” series, fans were hoping for a return of Daniel Radcliffe. He speaks on the issue.

Harry Potter : where is the saga?

From 2001 to 2012, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint played the young (and then not so young) wizards of the saga Harry Potter. Eight films adapted from JK Rowling’s novels which met with monster popular success and grossed over seven billion dollars revenue at the box office. Since the end of the saga Harry Potter in 2012, the universe of Hogwarts returned in the trilogy Fantastic Beasts, from 2016 to 2022. A prequel saga that focuses on the wizard Norbert Dragonneau (Eddie Redmayne), who has not met with the same success. Reviews are more mixed, and the saga pays off $1.8 billion at the box office. Above all, the third part, Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secretsreported only $404 million recipe, visibly burying the saga.

From, HBO announced that the license would return in the form of a series. Indeed, the studio is currently working on a series Harry Potter, where each season will adapt one of the volumes of JK Rowling’s literary saga. Since that announcement, fans have been wondering if some original cast memberslike Daniel Radcliffe, will return.

Daniel Radcliffe’s response

Recently, Daniel Radcliffe confirmed that he was unlikely to appear in the HBO series. During an intervention at the microphone of Comicbook.comthe actor developed his thoughts:

I understand they are really trying to start from scratch. I’m sure the creative team behind this series will want to leave their own mark and probably won’t want to bring old Harry back. So I’m in no way looking for it on my side either. But I obviously wish them all the luck in the world and I’m very happy to have passed the torch. But I don’t think the show needs me to physically pass it.

Obviously, no nostalgia in this new production Harry Potter. Like the series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power from Amazon Prime Video, which does not bring back any actors from the Peter Jackson filmsseries Harry Potter will be disconnected from the films and will be responsible for delivering a whole new vision of the wizarding world. The series is still in its infancy. No release date or casting on the horizon yet. To be continued !

We would love to say thanks to the writer of this post for this remarkable material
