For Harry Potter fans, this is troubling for a few days, as JK Rowling ignited a massive controversy online through his view on transgender rights. Fans and industry professionals alike have taken issue with the best-selling author’s claim that transwomen are not real women. Now Warner Bros. has also taken note of the matter by issuing the following statement.
“The events of the past several weeks have strengthened our resolve as a company to face difficult social issues. Warner Bros.” The position on inclusion is well established, and promoting a diverse and inclusive culture has never been more important to our company and to audiences around the world. We deeply value the work of our storytellers who give so much of themselves in sharing their creations with us. All. We recognize our responsibility to foster empathy and promote understanding of all communities and all people, especially those we work with and we reach through our content. “
It sounds as if to say something completely without anything concrete. Apart from vague statements of encouraging inclusivity, the studio has made no direct reference to Rowling’s tweets or his future relationship with the author, arguably his most engaging relationship with any single producer at the moment.
It was Warner Bros. who made J.K. Rowing to get into the world of Harry potter On the big screen. The result was a film series that was the most lucrative franchise in Hollywood history until Disney‘s MCU stole its thunder.
Currently, Warner Bros. is working with Rolling alongside the successful Great animal The saga which consists of 5 films, and once those films are done, the studio is likely to have the goings-on to create more Harry Potter spinoffs, which will continue to take the gold leap at the box-office for decades to come. the way Star wars.
Thus, it is understandable that Warner Bros. would be reluctant to call Rolling in public or immediately severed all ties with him. On the other hand, the author shows no signs of retreating despite a storm of criticism, and has recently written an essay on his website where he reiterated his controversial views and vowed to continue his espionage despite the backlash.
If the trend continues, soon Warner Bros. will have no choice but to cut all ties with Rowling or risk a boycott from the audience. Already, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and other cast and crew members Harry potter And Great animal Rowling’s views on social media have been denied.
It will be interesting to see how all this affects the work currently being done on the third part. Great animal. The franchise was already mired in controversy after Johnny Depp, who played Gellert Grindlewald in the films, was accused of domestic abuse by then wife Amber Hurd. Then Ezra Miller, who plays the role of Creedon Barbon, was caught on video attacking a fan. And now the controversy surrounding Rowling threatens to transcend both events that are the biggest threat to the franchise’s success. It was first reported by Deadline.
