Harry Potter Prequel in Development at HBO Max
Reports are circulating that the folks over at HBO Max are working on a new Harry Potter story.
If rumors are real, a prequel will be based around Severus Snape, played in the movies by Alan Rickman.
Right now, there aren’t details on what part of Snape’s incredible backstory will be in the series.
There’s no word yet on what period of Snape’s life this prequel could depict — his childhood, teenage years, and young adulthood as a Death Eater are all ripe for further exploration. If the rumors of a Marauders show — following James and his friends at Hogwarts — are correct, though, then a teen Snape series could be a logical spinoff of that.
Other concepts that have been rumored include a Hermione series, possibly with Emma Watson. We’re still waiting for any concrete details — including cast and crew — to be revealed for any of theseHarry Potterprojects, though. In the meantime, Fantastic Beasts 3 hits theaters next June.
