Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav recently told an investor conference call that Warner wants to focus on series IP (franchise), such as wanting to make more ‘Harry Potter’ movies, as long as it can work with original author J.K. Rowling on that. “We haven’t made a Superman movie in 13 years, and we haven’t made a ‘Harry Potter’ in 15 years.
DC and HP movies have generated a lot of revenue for Warner Bros. over the past 25 years. …… if we can work with J.K. Rowling to move ‘Harry Potter’ forward (he wants to see more HP movies).”
Warner released eight ‘Harry Potter’ movies between 2001-2011, grossing $7.7 billion worldwide. Now a spin-off series of films ‘Fantastic Beasts’ is also underway.
