Plan a transgender and multiracial reissue of Harry Potter movies

In the magical world of Harry Potter creatures abound in all shapes and colors, but for j.k critics. Rowling and the universe of fantasy of it, the variety of the characters in terms of gender identity, race or sexual inclination shines for their absence. That is why, after the controversy that has swallowed the public image of the writer for referring to "women" as "people who menstruate", there is one who has already raised a serious project to carry out a reissue of the films of the Saga from a more inclusive point of view.

The idea has presented it this week some producers from the United States who, at least for the moment, do not have the consent of Rowling to market or alter the universe that herself created more than 20 years ago. Even so, the idea is that this new version of the films, which will be issued in the form of a web series, begins to be recorded between June and July of this year, and for the moment it is not only known and part of the script, because Harry It will not be the protagonist, but have also been appearing the requirements that are requested to be presented to the casting.

For the role of James Potter, for example, an actor "Asian, black, descendant of Africans, ethnically ambiguous, multiracial, indigenous, Latin, Hispanic, from the Middle East, Surasia, Indian or inhabitant of the Pacific Islands." For that of Lily Evans, that is, that of the 'boy who survived', enough to be someone "does not according to the conventionalisms of gender, non-binary or female transsexual".

The same goes with other papers like Sirius Black, who can not be interpreted by a white actor, for example. Remus Lupine will no longer have to be a man, although they are not exclusive in this regard, but Peter Pettigrew, the 'Animago' become a domestic rat of the Weasley, yes that should be interpreted by a person "not according to the canons of Gender, non-binary or masculine transgender ".

Although an answer is expected in court by Rowling, not only creator of the universe, but also owner of the rights of everything that has to do with the 'Harry Potter' brand, the producers go very seriously and already They have hired a famous casting agent in Los Angeles. "We try to reflect the diversity that exists within the community of fans in the characters they love so much, so there are people of all colors, that there are queer frames and that we also see people from different religions," says Megan Mckelli, producer Videos on Tiktok and one of the people behind the project.

The criticisms against J.K. Rowling began in June 2020 after the writer claims the fact that the "woman" concept was not diluted when using expressions as "person who menstruates". The statements of it caused a wave of pressure against her endowed even by actors such as Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger,) who decided to distance himself from her. Since then the controversy, far from cooling, has been multiplied within the community that make up the fans of the community, also called Potterheads.

Recently Rowling had to go to the police complaining that some critics had gone to their residence in Edinburgh and who had published a photograph on social networks where the direction of the writer was clearly seen. She, inside this climate of pressure against her, argued that this could encourage harassment against her person. The Scottish police, however, has just confirmed that there was no mistake of crime constituting.

However, there are not only the actors and the fans themselves who have positioned themselves against Rowling in this matter, but a month ago three Quidditch organizations in the United Kingdom and the United States decided to change the name of the sport to distance itself from it , although they have not yet chosen one definitively. The Quidditch, which is a sport that practice the magicians of the saga mounted on flying brooms chasing enchanted balls, will stop being called not only for an ethical motive, but also economic, as the 'Quidditch' brand, owned by Warner Studios, limited to sport at raising income establishing sponsorships.
