Warner Bros. Is Working To Cut Down On The Number Of Harry Potter Themed Festivals

According to Warner Bros., magic is not for everyone.

Initially reported by the Associated Press on Saturday, the studio’s powers-that-be are cracking down on unauthorized Harry Potter festivals, eliciting disappointment and frustration from fans.

Festivals are now prohibited from using any “names, places, or objects” associated with the series — which, obviously, rules out pretty much everything except broad concepts. One festival outside Philadelphia, for example, will take on a new, vague “wands and wizards” theme.

“Our family absolutely loved Wizarding Weekend in Ithaca last year,” wrote user @CeliaBedelia. Warner Brothers certainly makes enough money from the Harry Potter franchise without having to shut down these festivals.”

So far, J.K. Rowling has not weighed in.
