Emma Watson, the British actress, and activist best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film franchise, has recently opened up about her activism and future projects. With rumors circulating about a potential ninth installment in the series, Watson has expressed her reluctance to reprise her role as Hermione.

Reluctance to Return to Harry Potter

Reports suggest that both Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe are hesitant to work within the ninth installment of the franchise. Watson, in particular, is skeptical about her return as Hermione. The makers of the franchise have been pondering the reboot of the series, with each season focusing on one book. According to Jeff Sneider, Emma Watson is the most reluctant to come back for Harry Potter 9.

Discomfort with J.K. Rowling

One of the reasons behind Watson’s reluctance is her discomfort working with J.K. Rowling due to her transphobic comments. The actress has been a vocal advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and has expressed her support for the transgender community on multiple occasions. The makers are using the reboot idea to bring back the original cast, as they will lose the famous tag of their respective characters.

Continuing the Cultural Phenomenon

The Harry Potter franchise has been a cultural phenomenon for over two decades, and Warner Bros. would want to continue to capitalize on its success. However, with the original cast’s reluctance to return, it remains to be seen how the studio will proceed with the potential reboot and whether they can recapture the magic of the original films.

Emma Watson’s Activism and Future Projects

Despite the uncertainty surrounding her involvement in the Harry Potter franchise, Emma Watson continues to focus on her activism and future projects. As a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, she has been actively promoting gender equality and women’s rights. Watson’s dedication to social issues and her acting career ensures that her fans will continue to see her on the big screen and make a difference in the world.
