Buckle up, Harry Potter fans. Just when you thought you were safe from Hollywood's recent obsession with rebooting, remaking, and redoing — you've been selected as the next fandom to (potentially) endure this fate.

Recently, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Warner Bros. is potentially looking to revive the Harry Potter franchise, as long as author J.K. Rowling is on board.

Before I even begin, I just want to let everyone know I stand against this decision 100%.

Are we really paying film companies millions of dollars for them to just take our beloved franchises and ruin them one by one?!

According to reports from "The Hollywood Reporter," Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav recently spoke to investors about his desire to "focus on franchises" which, to me, sounds like he wants to do a lot of reboots.

Because that's what we all want, right?

"The DC movies and the Harry Potter movies provided a lot of the profits for Warner Bros … over the past 25 years."

He went on to explain that they'd like to "do something with J.K. on Harry Potter going forward.”

As you can imagine, "Harry Potter" fans are not happy about this news for a host of reasons.

Not only is it a bad idea to reboot a film franchise that is so beloved, but J.K Rowling is now regarded as one of the most controversial public figures in Hollywood.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the motive here is money, not making more beloved films for fans.

As per the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. grossed a whopping $7.7 billion globally from the release of eight Harry Potter films from 2001 to 2011.

Many fans have taken to social media to express their concern at the franchise getting more films.

Sometimes, it's best to just leave things the way they are and let the fans keep the happy memories without ruining them with spin-offs, reboots, and remakes.
