Warner Bros. Discovery Exec Reportedly Meeting With Harry Potter Creator Soon to Develop New Content

Following the multimedia company’s merger with Discovery earlier this year, Warner Bros.’ future is at an interesting crossroads. While Warner Bros.

According to the article, Zaslav is trying to create “new” Potter material for HBO Max and wants to meet with series author J.K. Rowling in the coming weeks to discuss the matter.

This tidbit of information is likely to pique the interest of fans, particularly those who have been hoping to see the series grow or explore new stories.
