326: Recasting the ”Harry Potter” Movies in a [HBO] Max’s Television Remake!
Happy Monday, Christmas Fanatics!
Due to the elves' busy work schedules, we couldn't get a new episode recorded this week! But never fear! We have a timely, once patreon-exclusive episode dropping for you!
This past week, [HBO] Max confirmed they are moving forward with a television adaptation of the "Harry Potter" books, adapting one book per season and producing all seven seasons over the course of a decade! Naturally, this elicited a lot of excitement online, and fan-casting has been running rampant!
Well, back in February, when rumors of a potential "Harry Potter" remake began swirling around, Julia, Thom, and Anthony gathered to recast the main adult characters in the series for the then hypothetical series!
We know what you're thinking! Could anyone ever possibly top Alan Rickman as Snape, Dame Maggie Smith as Professor McGonagall, or any of the other incredible, British alumni that were part of the original cast? Probably not. But, we do our best to cast excellent actors and actresses in their own right to follow in those iconic footsteps, adhering slightly closer to the descriptions, personalities, and age ranges as established in J.K. Rowling's beloved book series. The only limitations we set for ourselves were: we couldn't choose the same actor for a role they played previously; and we wouldn't limit ourselves to British thespians. The result? Three very different, but equally as fun, fan-cast lists that we think you'll all enjoy!
So, settle back and enjoy this super fun blast from the recent past you want to be sure not to miss! As always, thanks for your love and support! We love y'all! 🎅🏻🎄🎁 🦌🦉⛄️🔔🚂 🤶🏻 🎀 ❄️
