Director Wes Anderson’s Harry Potter Edition: It’s difficult to picture what a Harry Potter film by Wes Anderson would look like, but one piece of AI art shows a clone of Anderson’s creation. Since making his directing debut in 1996 with Bottle Rocket, Anderson has established a reputation for using a colorful and unique aesthetic to bring several realistic themes to life on the big screen. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou from 2004 and The Grand Budapest Hotel from 2014 are two more noteworthy to feature his approach and develop cult followings. The latter film also received nine Oscar nominations, including Best Picture.




Although combining that unique style with the Harry Potter universe might be challenging, Panorama Channel used Instagram to demonstrate how AI could portray that reality. Although this isn’t the first instance of Harry Potter AI art to depict a wholly different reality, it does bring up fresh concerns regarding the film’s aesthetic.

Could A Bright and Colorful Harry Potter Work?

Given the fanciful nature of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, it seems like an odd idea to have the films progressively fade into darkness. While the first film had a lot of fun and lightheartedness, Voldemort’s ascent to power resulted in succeeding films tinted blue and black. Everything is shrouded in shadow, which blends well with the horrible rise of a demon that sought to rid the planet of all those thought to be less-than-perfect.




The Harry Potter films aren’t the franchise’s end, despite maintaining a committed fan base throughout its existence and in the years since. There is still an opportunity for the Wizarding World to inject some vibrant and wacky color into its directing style with the contentious Harry Potter revival on the horizon. It might result in a product that accurately mimics the effect of these AI visuals, provided it borrows components from Anderson’s films.
