After the flop of “Fantastic Beasts”, Warner Bros would be willing to bring the most famous (and profitable) wizard in the world back to the big screen. But with a whole new cast
It’s been 12 years since we last saw Harry Potter in cinemas. It was 2011 and the world’s most famous wizard concluded his adventure in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
