Unauthorized Harry Potter Film Seeking to Cast 'Transgender,' 'Nonbinary' and 'Non-White' Actors

American producers are planning to make a “woke” Harry Potter web series that aims to cast multiple characters as “non-binary,” “transgender,” and/or “non-white.”

The effort appears to be a direct attack on Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling, who has infamously been branded “transphobic” after she expressed her disagreement with biological men being allowed into women’s spaces.

“We aim to reflect the diversity of the fan base in its beloved characters, introducing people of color, queer storylines, and characters of differing faiths,” TikTok video producer Megan Mckelli, said, according to a report from The Daily Mail.

According to casting notes obtained by the Daily Mail, the production is seeking to cast a “gender-nonconforming, non-binary, trans female” as Harry Potter’s mother. For his father, the producers want an actor who is “Asian, black, African descent, ethnically ambiguous, multiracial, Indigenous peoples, Latino, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, South Asian, Indian, Southeast Asian or Pacific Islander.”

“Casting sheets for Sirius Black, originally played by Gary Oldman in the movie adaptations, call for a non-white actor,” the report states. “All genders can audition for the part.”

Peter Pettigrew must be played by a “a gender non-conforming, non-binary, trans male” according to the casting sheets.

The project is likely to face pushback from Rowling, who has not yet commented on it publicly. The author is notorious for protecting her copyright, however.

Rowling first began being branded as a “TERF” — “Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist,” in June, 2020, when she took issue with an article referring to “people who menstruate” instead of using the word “woman.”

“If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives,” she tweeted.

After being attacked for this take, Rowling wrote a lengthy blog about her concerns with trans-activism.

“So I want trans women to be safe. At the same time, I do not want to make natal girls and women less safe. When you throw open the doors of bathrooms and changing rooms to any man who believes or feels he’s a woman – and, as I’ve said, gender confirmation certificates may now be granted without any need for surgery or hormones – then you open the door to any and all men who wish to come inside,” she wrote. “That is the simple truth.”

Instead of bowing to the constant backlash, Rowling has continued to speak out.

The reaction to her views has been so intense that Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and Eddie Redmayne have all either denounced Rowling’s comments or expressed support for trans activism.

Breitbart News reports that “actors Ralph Fiennes, who played Voldemort, and Robbie Coltrane, who played Hagrid, have both defended Rowling and her right to hold a public opinion at variance of those on the left.”

    Um, this was done already. Why are they trampling the work of greater and wiser people who went before them?

    why remake a movie, this has been done over and over again and has proven out that remakes almost always suck. you want a non-white harry potter good for you, easy way to do that and still be in universe is focus on a different magic school. we already know there are others and it would be easy enough to set one up based in idk Africa, now the real challenge is if you can find writes competent enough to write a script that more than 3% of the population is going to want to watch. if not your just making a b movie for the loudest minority, who will complain that it’s everyone else fault the movie didn’t do good.

    Well, either this will blow away like a cardboard lemonade stand at the end of the driveway…

    Or there will be a Progressive cult pile-on to see who can pitch their virtue flag up the pole highest (and avoid being eaten by the sharks swimming around the bottom.) And we’ll see a funding push like when BLM first launched to dwarf even the real Harry Potter franchise.

    Can’t happen? You bet it can!

    The chances of catching lightning in a bottle are pretty good when Blackrock is holding it for you.

    Let’s just hope that the idea is cringe enough and BLM left enough bad taste in people’s mouths, and that people are brave enough to call bullshit. This ain’t 2016, and people know what’s going on this time.

    (Not that I care about Harry Potter. Star Wars was my jam; I’m from a different generation. Will the PewDiePie gen be willing to put up with Progressive culture vandals? Or will they fold like a bunch of cowards?)
