I loved Harry Potter as a child. And I was lucky enough to visit Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter about two weeks before the world shut down last year. So I spent a lot of quarantine watching the movies and reading the books again. And while I absolutely love the movies- they are classics IMO- I can’t help but wonder if they would ever redo them. In today’s day and age, a Harry Potter reboot isn’t that far-fetched. And if it happened what would be better than having the original cast be a part of it? Which Harry Potter characters would Daniel Radcliffe play in a Harry Potter reboot? He’s not confirming a reboot, but Daniel Radcliffe does know who he’d want to play if there was one.  He said he would choose Sirius or Lupin.  He said, “those are always the two characters that I was like, ‘They’re great!'”

I think he would be a perfect fit for Sirius! And honestly, I’m surprised he is even interested in participating. It seemed like, and understandable so for his career, that he tried to distance himself from the franchise. Radcliffe, the OG Harry Potter, made the statement on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. He told the hosts filming scenes with Sirius (Gary Oldman) and Lupin (David Thewlis) were some of his favorite memories of the series.

I would love a reboot, at one time I saw the idea of a tv show so even more of the details from the book could be involved. It would have to be on a streaming service though so people could binge-watch! Rupert Grint could come back and Mr. Weasley, I think Emma Watson could make a perfect McGonnagal. Who would you like to see in a reboot?
