What Daniel said about HBO's Harry Potter reboot

Speaking to Comicbook.com about the show, Daniel said, "My understanding is that they're trying to very much start fresh and I'm sure whoever is making them will want to make their own mark on it and probably not want to have to figure out how to get old Harry to cameo in this somewhere. So I'm definitely not seeking it out in any way. But I do wish them, obviously, all the luck in the world and I'm very excited to have that torch passed. But I don't think it needs me to physically pass it."

About the new series

The upcoming series will feature a new cast, and each season will be devoted to one of Rowling's books. The plan is for the series to unfold over 10 years. Rowling will serve as an executive producer on the show. "I'm looking forward to being part of this new adaptation which will allow for a degree of depth and detail only afforded by a long-form television series," Rowling said in a statement.

The announcement for the new franchise was met with widespread groans from fans of the original series. Many asked what was the need to gild the lily after all.
