A report from Yahoo!, which cites an uncredited TikTok user as having “gone viral after sharing rumored casting details”, lists a number of actors rumored to be associated with Harry Potter characters, including Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger.

And without further ado, the rumored new Harry Potter cast is as follows:

Toby Woolf — Harry Potter

According to the alleged TikTok “insider”, British actor Toby Woolf, best known for TV shows such as The Last Post (2017), will replace Daniel Radcliffe as the Boy Who Lived, Harry Potter. However, Toby is now 14 years’ old, which is odd considering the Harry Potter reboot is said to start from scratch with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone making up the first season, which would put Harry at 11…

Bronte Carmichael — Hermione Granger

Best known for starring in the live-action Winnie-the-Pooh remake Christopher Robin (2018), British actress Bronte Carmichael is rumored to play Hermione Granger, following in the footsteps of Emma Watson. Like Toby Woolf, however, Bronte is also 14 years’ old, which does leave us feeling somewhat suspicious about this rumor.

British actor Joshua Pickering, who will be appearing in this year’s live-action Disney remake Peter Pan and Wendy (2023), will apparently play Ronald Weasley, replacing Rupert Grint.

We think we’ll stop right there before we get too ahead of ourselves, though, however, the article does continue with other alleged Harry Potter cast members, with Adam Driver as Severus Snape (which we suspect is nothing more than a spot of fan-casting), Helen Mirren as Minerva McGonagall, and African-American actor Blair Underwood as Albus Dumbledore, as well as Draco Malfoy actor Tom Felton, this time as Lucius Malfoy, his on-screen father who was played by Jason Isaacs in the Harry Potter films.

There has been no official announcement from Warner Bros. or HBO Max on casting for the Harry Potter reboot, so it’s best to take this rumor with a very big pinch of salt. Meanwhile, another rumor suggests that there’s a ninth Harry Potter film in the works, which would see the return of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint. Exactly how this would work alongside a newly-cast reboot, though, remains to be seen.

A ninth film would follow Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001), Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1 (2010), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 (2011).

Although it would technically be the twelfth Harry Potter film, when you include the three spin-off films, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016), Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018), and Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (2022).
