Discovery promises that “each season will be authentic to the original books.” The original movies will still be “available to watch globally,” even with this new show in development.
- Committing to 10 years of a show is pretty bold, but I hope this does well. I love Harry Potter (requisite link to Great Art from Bad People) and I think the movies were iconic, so a TV series is a great way to try and do this story again. Get deeper on the minutia and really let us settle into the world.
- Given Warner’s recent penitent for removing content like crazy, it is definitely worth noting that the films will remain available. Not a given with this lot.
