Good news for the Potterheads after a wait of 12 long years! In case you missed it, Warner Bros. Discovery has officially announced a Harry Potter series for its new streaming platform, Max.

It will be a decade-long TV series with an all-new cast, and popular author JK Rowling as an Executive Producer, who's been heavily criticized for promoting transphobia. Along with Rowling, Neil Blair and Ruth Kenley-Letts have also signed on as excecutive producers.

In an official statement by HBO Max, they said, “Each season will be authentic to the original books and bring Harry Potter and these incredible adventures to new audiences around the world,".

The announcement has sent us over the moon, and while it is almost impossible to replace the original cast, we decided to ask ChatGPT to reimagine a new cast! Check out the results:
