If the ‘Harry Potter’ movies were released in recent times, they would likely face significant criticism for their lack of diversity in the cast. The series is primarily portrayed by white actors, with only a handful of supporting characters played by people of color, some of whom had only brief appearances.
Given the current trend among filmmakers to prioritize casting a diverse set of actors, the lack of diversity in ‘Harry Potter’ would be especially noticeable. Recently, a Reddit user, u/h4lfd34f, shared images of Harry Potter characters re-imagined as African-American on the subreddit r/midjourney. These images highlight the potential for greater diversity in the series.
