JK Rowling continues to have Warner Bros.’ support despite his highly controversial comments aimed at the transgender community. A reporter recently asked actor Tom Felton – best known for playing villainous Draco Malfoy on the Harry Potter movies – a question about the author being “into things like that”, prompting a third-party media representative to chime in and say Rowling is “not related” to Warner Bros. Following this incident, the company clarified that it has always had a “creative, productive and fulfilling partnership” with Rowling.


A spokesperson for Warner Bros. Studio Tour London told Daily Mail UK: “Warner Bros. has enjoyed a creative, productive and fulfilling partnership with JK Rowling over the past 20 years. She’s one of the world’s most accomplished storytellers, and we’re proud to be the studio bringing her vision, characters, and stories to life now — and for decades to come.

“On Monday, a statement was released by a third-party news agency that appeared contrary to this view. The statement was totally untrue and Warner Bros. Studio Tour London regrets that this happened as part of a media event that day.

In 2020, Rowling – who wrote all seven bestsellers Harry Potter books and the Fantastic Beasts prequel film series – received backlash for a series of transphobic tweets, in which she expressed her disagreement with the idea of ​​“erasing the concept of sex”. Even actor Daniel Radcliffe – who starred in the Harry Potter feature films – disagreed with her, stating that “transgender women are women”.

While Rowling was credited with scripting and producing Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law-directed Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets, she was not part of any promotional or marketing activities. Many assumed that Warner Bros. was trying to distance himself from her, but his most recent remarks go against that.

The fact that Warner Bros. continues to support Rowling suggests the two could continue working on Fantastic Beasts, a franchise whose future is unclear at this time. Warner had said that the existence of Fantastic Beasts 4 would depend on how well Dumbledore’s Secrets were received. During its box office run, the third Harry Potter The spin-off film has grossed almost $405 million (about Rs. 3,202 crore) on a budget of $200 million (about Rs. 1,581 crore).
