Harry Potter 9 should finally happen because of HBO’s return to Hogwarts

The success of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Reunion showed not only how persistent the Wizarding World’s fandom is, but also how much the world requires Harry Potter 9.

The cast’s friendship was infectious, and the set stories were lovely, but there was more than enough evidence to suggest that the Golden Trio should reunite.

Even if it becomes challenging, the sentiment stays the same:

Harry Potter 9

The Harry Potter Reunion had its opponents, who pointed out mistakes and questioned the lack of original cast members from the Harry Potter films, but it was the perfect tonic for fans who still consider Hogwarts their home. Leaving aside the Cursed Child and Fantastic Beasts spin-offs, the lack of a ninth Harry Potter film has created a great deal of consternation. Even a movie version of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child would be welcome at this point, despite the story’s faults. It’s unthinkable that a decade after the release of Deathly Hallows Part 2, no new Harry Potter film or television show is in the works.

Character brands are valued by studios the size of Warner Bros. far beyond their original releases or source material. Indiana Jones, Batman, James Bond, and a slew of other properties are huge big money makers for their respective rights holders, and Harry Potter is right up there with them.

The Harry Potter Reunion was a nice reminder of how good the series was, but it also hinted at how good Harry Potter 9 could be if Warner Bros. made it. Not only is there profound brand affection and an almost unprecedented level of audience interaction, but the talent available makes it almost criminal not to resurrect Potter’s films.

With the In Memoriam section for Harry Potter performers who have died away, it’s easy to think of the Harry Potter Reunion as a time capsule celebration, removed from the continuity. The reintroduction of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint as a group felt like an insight into how amazing they may be again, just as the Deathly Hallows epilogue promised a new generation while also ending Harry Potter’s saga. As far as each has gone since their initial Wizarding World casting, they were so brilliantly cast that, as they remark in the reunion, it’s impossible to separate the actor from the part.
