The CEO of WarnerMedia has hinted at future Harry Potter sequels, saying there is a 'lot of fun and potential there'.

JK Rowling's best-selling series of seven novels were adapted into a hugely successful film franchise of eight movies released between 2001 and 2011. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jack Kilar spoke about the future of the media empire during a virtual appearance at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecommunications conference.

He said: 'There's this little thing called Harry Potter, which is one of the most beloved franchises.

'And we're incredibly thankful to be able to partner with JK Rowling and so I would argue there's a lot of fun and potential there as well.'

Mr Kilar did not elaborate further on his comments but it was previously reported a Harry Potter live-action TV series was in early development at HBO Max, which Warner Bos. later denied. 

MailOnline has contacted representatives for JK Rowling for comment.

The Potterverse has already been expanded through the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find them film series.

Two out of a planned five films have been released so far starring Eddie Redmayne as Newst Scamander, with the plot taking place decades before the events of Harry Potter.  

Johnny Depp appeared in the first two films as Gellert Grindelwald but dropped out of the series after he lost a libel case against The Sun over a 2018 article that referred to him as a 'wife beater'. 

It comes after Daniel Radcliffe recently admitted he is 'embarrassed' by some of his acting in the Harry Potter films.

Speaking to fellow actor Elijah Wood in Empire magazine, he said: 'It's hard to separate my relationship with Harry from my relationship with the films as a whole.

'I'm incredibly grateful for the experience. It showed me what I want to do with the rest of my life. To find out early on what you love is really lucky.

'I'm intensely embarrassed by some of my acting, obviously [laughs], but yeah, it's like asking, "how do you feel about your teenage years?"'
