Competition for «Harry Potter» Ex-«Potter» boss is now planning his own gigantic fantasy franchise — series news

Warner Bros.

After seven years as Chief Creative Officer at JK Rowling’s Wizarding World, the home of all Harry Potter themed and publishing , James Scott McKnight has a wealth of experience with a major fantasy franchise — and now wants to use that to create his own build universe.

As Deadline reports, McKnight has created a fantasy sci-fi world called The Invisible Lights that he now wants to make big as a franchise. «The Invisible Lights» focuses on 18-year-old Elliott, who experiences his adventures in interconnected worlds.

«The Invisible Lights»: series, books and more

McKnight has not only worked for the Harry Potter franchise, but also for the Lord of the Rings, Moshi Monsters and Hello Kitty brands, so he knows very well how to tailor his content to reflect the to inspire crowds. So his plans for «The Invisible Lights» are gigantic from the start: There should be a series, but also a podcast, comics and books. However, the latter do not serve as a template, but will only be created for the new franchise in the first place.

McKnight was interested in whether the concept, like Marvel, that different projects and media are linked together, could also be used as a creative strategy right from the start. He told Deadline , «I’ve decided not just to write a TV series, not just to write a book, but I’m going to try to create a world and see where it takes me.»

That’s what «The Invisible Lights» is about

There is a little more information about the world of «The Invisible Lights» than just the main character: the action takes place in a world that is linked through a portal to another world called Light. This has four continents, each with different weather conditions, and each of these continents is in turn linked to a different world. But then the portals disappear. The story is then about how the worlds are reconnected and how they have changed.

Elliott, an 18-year-old introvert from San Francisco, experiences tragedy early in the story when his mother, his only caregiver, dies in a car accident. Elliott soon finds out many new things about himself, leading him to investigate led by a private investigator who previously worked with Elliott’s mother. Elliott embarks on a journey of discovery.

Everything is connected

Also part of the story is a comic about a mythical story that Elliott believes is fiction. In one world he doesn’t know anyone who has read the comic, but then he finds out that in another world the comic is a symbol of youth rebellion.

What happens in the different worlds should then be told via different media — for example, the podcast should then be about the action in another world that takes place in parallel.

It is not yet known when we can expect the first releases from the world of » The Invisible Lights «.
