The franchise Harry Potter will get a new life through a series for HBO. And the director David Yates he said he will work on the program.
Yates was responsible for directing four films Harry Potter and three films by Fantastic animals.
It seems his experience with the wizarding world isn’t enough to keep him in the franchise. According to comic booksHe said:
“He wants to know? I honestly couldn’t, in any way imaginable, get involved. It’s simple: I spent a lot of time in that school, in those corridors and in those classrooms, and it was an extraordinary experience that I will always cherish. But to come back and do another year or two, for me, I feel like I left it. Being in the back of a van with the [produtor] Lawrence [Grey] to Atlanta from Savannah, walking around trying to make a play, to me, right now, is more appealing than walking through the hallowed gates of Hogwarts.”
He added: “I wish this program much success, it will be amazing to see them re-explore what they can be for the next generation. I think it will be a challenge for everyone involved, but it is a very exciting undertaking and I wish him the best. It was an incredible experience for me and I know the other directors involved, and it will be for the next generation of directors“.
Until now the Warner Bros.. did not provide details about the series Harry Potter or when it will debut.
After the negative reviews and the failure of Fantastic animalsthe studio needs to pay more attention to the production of the series.
