Why ‘Harry Potter’ Star Bonnie Wright Believes a Series Reboot Isn’t Needed

‘Harry Potter’ star Bonnie Wright compared the series to a “time capsule” and stated she believes a reboot might cause everything to feel “different.”

Adaptations Pop Culture

For years, fans of J.K. Rowling’s beloved Harry Potter series have been advocating for a number of different spinoff projects about the Wizarding World, and have even considered whether the seven Harry Potter books should be adapted into a television series.



However, there is at least one member of the original Harry Potter cast who doesn’t necessarily believe the original series should be rebooted at all. According to Winter is Coming, Bonnie Wright (who played Ginny Weasley in the films) recently shared her opinions on this topic at the reopening of the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. She said, “I would hope that they keep it as it was…I think it’s like a time capsule, and [if] you open it and it changes, everything feels kind of different.”

Wright expanded on her thoughts by stating, “For sure, I miss playing Ginny, but I always quite like the idea that it’s properly compacted into those seven years at Hogwarts.” However, just because Wright isn’t highly in favor of a reboot, she wouldn’t refuse the opportunity to be involved in one if the opportunity arose.




She said, “I love the experience so much. And I know that the production and all of us would do it so well that no matter what they imagined, it would be brilliant.”

Winter is Coming also added that HBO Max quickly shut down the rumors that a live-action Harry Potter production was in the works earlier this year.
