Harry Potter and Canon Management

July 31, 2014


Warner Bros. Entertainment has conjured up the Harry Potter Global Franchise Development team, based in both London and Burbank, to “develop and execute a high-level strategic vision for the Harry Potter brand and its ancillary businesses,” Warner Bros. said Wednesday.

We’ve seen similar strategies with the Lord of the Rings (Middle-earth Enterprises) and Star Wars (Lucasfilm Story Group) franchises. I am all for unified canon management and more Harry Potter. Seems like great news for a potential Harry Potter MMO…


Warner Bros. Entertainment is not currently commenting on any involvement the team might have with future Harry Potter video games.
