Waner Bros. may be back in trouble. A new lawsuit has been filed following a defective Harry Potter wand allegedly almost blinding a three-year-old.
TMZ broke the story of this Warner Bros. lawsuit that was filed by Jessica Perry, the mother whose child was severely injured following a malfunction with a Harry Potter replica wand with a pen function. According to Perry, the “metal writing portion” of the wand shot off while her older son was playing with it, rupturing the eye of her younger son.
Jessica Perry is suing Warner Bros. for this incident as there was already one review online detailing a similar incident with the same Harry Potter wand. She seeks $8 million in damages as the damage to her son’s eye was so severe that he needs to protect his retina for the remainder of his life, leaving him unable to play sports or lead a normal life.
This Harry Potter situation is far from the only lawsuit Warner Bros. is currently juggling. Just two weeks ago an extra on the set of Batgirl sued for her own life-threatening injury on set, and penciler Chris Wozniak is currently suing rhe company for alleged plagiarism over The Batman‘s script.
The first details about the Harry Potter HBO Max series
Each season of the series will be based on one of the seven Harry Potter books, with the first one taking inspiration from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. This approach will no doubt be a welcome one for fans, who have long been hoping for a faithful adaptation of the books that stays true to the original vision of J.K. Rowling.
The Harry Potter series is sure to be a major boost for Max, which has been making waves in the streaming world with its recent slate of original content. With the Wizarding World franchise boasting a massive global following, the series has the potential to be a major draw for subscribers, helping to solidify Max’s position in the competitive streaming landscape.
For J.K. Rowling, the series represents a chance to return to the world that made her a household name and to continue to build upon the mythology she created over 20 years ago. Since the release of the final book in the series, titled Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Rowling has continued to expand the wizarding world through various spin-off projects, including the Fantastic Beasts series.
With J.K. Rowling on board as a producer and each season based on one of the seven books in the series, Harry Potter fans can expect a faithful adaptation that explores the world of the Wizarding World in greater depth. Neil Blair and Ruth Kenley-Letts are also on board as executive producers, with David Heyman in talks to join the creative team.
