A piece of Harry Potter fan art transforms Daniel Radcliffe’s iconic figure into an undead Wizard, bringing zombies to the Wizarding World.
Daniel Radcliffe’s character is shown as a frightening zombie in a piece of Harry Potter fan art. The Harry Potter series is one of the most well-known franchises in history, and it all began in 1997 when J.K. Rowling published the first book in the series. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was released by J.K. Rowling. In 2001, Warner Bros. released their debut picture starring Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson, seeing the potential for a series. Rowling was engaged in all eight Warner Bros. films produced between 2001 and 2011 and authored seven novels in the core series.
Fantastic Beasts 3 will be released in July 2022, starring Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, and will be the third installment in the trilogy. The first two films, as the title implies, exposed audiences to a variety of new species, such as Bowtruckles, Demiguises, and Nifflers, to mention a few. Of course, there were animals, monsters, and mythological creatures in all eight Harry Potter films, with Dementors being one of the most terrifying creatures in the series.
Because the Harry Potter films have stayed pretty true to Rowling’s writings, zombies are unlikely to appear in a Harry Potter film. Warner Bros., on the other hand, might feasibly bring back Radcliffe, Watson (Hermione), and Grint (Ron). The play Harry Potter: The Cursed Child premiered on Broadway in 2016. With the narrative in place and Harry Potter is such a profitable property for Warner Bros., the original actors may very well return for a film or television adaptation. The news that a live-action Harry Potter show was coming to HBO Max earlier this year fueled speculation that a film version of The Cursed Child was on the way.
Since the late 1990s, fans have been making unique Harry Potter art, and owing to numerous social media sites, it has gotten easier and easier to share artwork online in the previous 20+ years. Fans have imagined anything from sexual ties between characters to various “what if” scenarios. Jim Kay, a professional artist, is also illustrating all of Rowling’s Harry Potter books, with four out of seven presently available. Given the popularity of the Wizarding World, Harry Potter art will almost certainly never cease, but converting the renowned wizard into a zombie was a brilliant yet easy idea.
