If you thought you were done with Hogwarts yet, well, think again! After 11 years, it’s highly likely that we’ll see a few more Harry Potter movies in the future. According to Entertainment Weekly, Warner Bros execs are looking at the possibility of working on more fan favorites if they can get JK Rowling on board.

CEO David Zaslav commented on the company’s interest in continuing the franchise. “We’re going to have a real focus on franchisees,” he explained. “We haven’t had a Superman movie in 13 years. We haven’t done a Harry Potter movie in 15 years. The DC movies and the Harry Potter movies provided a lot of the profits of Warner Bros Motion Pictures over the last 25 years”.

“So a focus on the franchise. What are the movies that have brands that are understood and loved everywhere in the world? When you have a franchise movie, you can often make two to three times the amount of money that you make in the US because you get a slot. And a focus on the big movies that are loved, that are tentpole, that people are going to leave early from dinner to go to see — and we have a lot of them,” he added.

Zaslav continued, “Batman, Superman, Aquaman – if we can do something with JK Rowling on Harry Potter going forward, Lord of the Rings, what are we doing with Game of Thrones? What are we doing with a lot of the big franchises that we have? We’re focused on franchises.”
