Warner Bros. will make new films in the Harry Potter universe | Instagram
There is no doubt that Warner Bros. will not put aside one of its most successful properties, as it has plans to continue exploiting the wonderful world of Harry Potter, so he is preparing new movies.
One of Warner Bros. most successful properties is the Harry Potter franchise, and while the last Fantastic Beasts movie was divisive, there are many very good reasons to believe that there is great potential for success in it.
And it is for that reason that the company has announced that the executive Tom Ascheim, will be in charge of supervising the franchise with new movies.
It is worth mentioning that the Harry Potter saga and its two Fantastic Beasts spin-offs have raised more than $ 7.7 billion dollars worldwide and is currently working on the sequel to Fantastic Animals: The Crimes of Grindelwald, but said saga seems being surrounded by scandal over the firing of Johnny Depp, and because the last film was not very well received by critics and fans.
Due to the large number of characters and stories that can be deduced from the original JK Rowling books, the most logical path to Warner Bros. is to continue exploring the magical world of Harry Potter with movies and perhaps series for the HBO Max platform.
In fact, Ascheim will be tasked with working closely with Rowling and will report directly to WarnerMedia President Ann Sarnoff, who stated:
In Harry Potter and the Wizarding World, we have an iconic franchise and characters that have become a beloved part of the lives of millions of people around the world. This new management of the franchise highlights its tremendous importance to Warner Bros. and the countless opportunities we see to continue to attract and delight fans of all ages around the world. “
“I’m excited that Tom is leading our efforts and I look forward to him and his team working across the company to discover innovative and creative ways to keep the Wizarding World fresh and relevant for years to come,” she said.
And is that Harry Potter introduced an entire generation to a fantasy world where wizards and witches live hidden from normal human beings and struggle to maintain order in a universe where magic plays a fundamental role.
From 2001 to 2011, 8 films were released that adapted the 7 novels by JK Rowling, thus creating a large mass of fans.

Tom Ascheim, the new one in charge of overseeing the franchise, actually said that he is a huge Harry Potter fan and is honored by the opportunity to be responsible for the new projects.
Unfortunately, for now very little is known about this new stage for the magical world created by Rowling, however, it is expected that new projects will reach the big screen and the small screen in the future.
This new management replaces the one that was in charge of Josh Berger since 2014, who left the company in 2020 after 30 years working in it.
So while more news arrives about the possible spin-offs of Harry Potter, It remains to be seen what happens with Fantastic Beasts 3, a film that replaced Johnny Depp with Mads Mikkelsen and is directed by David Yates, responsible for the last four Harry Potter installments, and with JK Rowling as the screenwriter.
On the other hand, in the last year Rowling has been the center of attention and not for good reasons, but for her inexplicable anti-trans stance, which she has wanted to disguise as a genuine concern for women and trans people, but that is full of irrational prejudices against one of the most marginalized and discriminated LGBTQ community groups in human history.
