December 18, 2021.

In response to recent misleading and incorrect news stories surrounding J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros., the below is available as an official statement with credit as indicated.

The following statement is issued jointly by Neil Blair, founding partner, The Blair Partnership and Ann Sarnoff, Chair and CEO, WarnerMedia Studios and Networks Group:

For 20 years, Warner Bros., J.K. Rowling and her team have worked together to delight fans around the world with spectacular storytelling and the magic of the Wizarding World. That relationship continues today and is more collaborative than ever. News reports to the contrary are completely untrue, and we are disappointed that these inaccurate stories only serve to hurt the Harry Potter fans we hope to entertain.
