Recasting The Harry Potter Movies If They Came Out Today

If there's a Harry Potter remake anytime soon, these actors would make a great cast...

The original Harry Potter movies deserve a lot of credit. Despite how much content was left out from the books, they were still well-written adaptations with plenty of great moments.

The casting was also impressive, and certain performers – such as Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Robbie Coltrane (Rubeus Hagrid), and Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) – were uncannily similar to J.K. Rowling’s original creations.

Yet it’s been almost a decade since Harry’s on-screen adventures came to a conclusion, and as such, fans of the franchise often ponder what a potential remake would look like. Of course, it’s impractical to speculate about the younger characters – Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson were all unknown when they were cast as the leading trio.

When it comes to some of the older characters, on the other hand, recasting the Harry Potter movies is much more feasible. But given how many adult characters there are in Rowling’s world, it would be a momentous task to try and recast all of them.

Still, there are a number of prominent actors currently working in the movie industry who would fit comfortably into the wizarding world…
