Harry Potter and Canon Management

July 31, 2014

Variety:

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…

Polygon:

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