Okay, I seriously wasn't going to go here but I feel the need to express my opinion a little further. So I have heard some of you say " The Harry Potter series will be re-made to keep up with time, or keep the legend alive". That is fine that you have that opinion, but I only have one or two questions. You don't think the movie series will live on as a classic. Its the topo, início earning movie series in the world, not counting inflation. It has the best British cast in the world. Besides I think Hollywood avoids remakes if they can unless they are trying to make quick money. And if they do remake a movie it is usually not one as complex and big as The Harry Potter series. That would be like someone trying to remake the entire "Star Wars" saga. Even classics like "Jaws" people don't think of touching. Speaking of "Jaws" and "Star Wars" they don't have to be remade to keep up with times. As different technologies come out they adapt them. "Gone with the Wind" and "The Wizard of Oz" came out in 1939 and are both on Blu-ray as we speak. There have been spin-offs. The "Star Wars" series has the animated clone wars cartoon. And in talks are " Dorothy of Oz" where she returns to oz and " Oz the Great and Powerful" exploring how the wizard got there to esmeralda City but I don't think anyone would ever think of trying to Replace Judy Garland as "Dorothy". Or Mark Hamill,Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford as "Luke Skywalker", "Princess Leia" and "Han Solo". And judging from the impact and success these filmes have had I don't think another person would attempt to fill Dan, Emma, and Rupert's shoes as "Harry", "Hermione" and "Ron". Or how many of us have even said: Alan Rickman is "Snape", no one could do it better, same with Helena as "Bellatrix", or Evanna as "Luna" etc. Horror filmes are just scary fun and they get re-made alot. Even some of the small but big characters that try and get re-created por another actor of today fail badly, but are okay. But they never live up to even a 1/3 of the Original. "Halloween" and "Psycho" are two examples. You may ask why I feel so strongly against this. I have an answer. Because I grew up with the books and filmes right from the beginning for both of them. In 97 or 98 I got the "Sorcerers Stone", In 2001 I saw the first movie; and since then I bought each book as it came out and saw every movie in the theater opening day. Believe me some of my favorito parts have been left out too. But after a while I figured you have to enjoy each as a separate thing. Besides if Jo is happy with the movies, and she oversees the changes. Then that's good enough for me. Its her world and if she is proud of the filmes made from her books. Than I am too.
