Don’t feel old now: The theatrical release of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” is 20 years ago! As unbelievable as this is, the more justified is the question of whether there could be a remake of the films in the near future. After all, rumors have often circulated in the past that the story about the young magician and his friends would return to the screens as a series.
A cool idea! However, completely unimaginable for fans of the first hour that Harry, Ron, Hermione & Co. could be embodied by other actors. After all, we still associate the actors with their roles of that time. This is how Rupert Grint always stay Ron and Emma Watson Hermione. Daniel Radcliffe, who landed the role of eleven-year-old Harry Potter in 2001, is also two decades and all roles in other films later, for the fans still the Harry Potter.
