To retaliate against JK Rowling, Hollywood is developing a trans “woke” Harry Potter series that features a majority of transgender and non-binary characters.
It looks like movie producers are planning to make a trans “woke” Harry Potter series that will be “more inclusive,” which, according to producers means “less straight and less white.” In this version, the magical characters will be played by transgender and non-binary actors who can do magic, like Harry. This decisions comes as a backlash to JK Rowling’s comments on transgenderism.
The filmmakers are seeking a more diverse cast for the starring roles, which will be interpreted by many as a challenge to J.K. Rowling, who was attacked for questioning the premise that trans women are genetically identical to biological women.
Some characters, notably James Potter, Harry’s father, cannot be performed by white actors in the new ‘web series’ versions, which will be televised online.
The casting call for the upcoming trans “woke” Harry Potter series demands a “non-white actor” to play the role of Harry’s uncle, Sirius Black, a character who was previously played by Gary Oldman.
Auditioning for the role is open to people of all genders, the producers claim. A statement from the project’s author, TikTok video producer Megan Mckelli, stated that the project’s goal is to reflect the variety of the fandom in its beloved characters, by incorporating individuals of colour, LGBT narratives, and characters of various religious beliefs except for Christianity.
A legal struggle with Ms Rowling, who is not believed to have granted permission for the producers to exploit her characters, appears to be on the horizon for the producers, who are headquartered in the Hollywood, California in the United States.
Even if though the producers have come up with their own storyline and screenplay which does not includie Daniel Radliffe’s Harry Potter, Emma Watson’s Hermione Granger, and Rupert Grint’s Ron Weasley, the film is still based on the books written by JK Rowling, the showrunner stated.
Characters including Remus Lupin, Marlene McKinnon, Peter Pettigrew, and Dorcas Meadowes will all feature in the next television series, which will be filmed in the Pacific Northwest this summer.
Lupin may be represented by a female actor, but, according to the script, Pettigrew must be represented by a “gender nonconforming non-binary trans male.”
Hannah Schill, a casting agency based in Los Angeles, has been hired by Ms Mckelli for the series, which has not yet been shown.
JK Rowling, 56, author and vionsary behind the Harry Potter stories, has refused to comment and our sources believe that she’s preparing to take legal action against the producers.
