One thing that would REALLY make this animated series different from any other ever made is that the characters actually age between, and through out, the seasons.

Not only growing as a character, but actually aging.

You see, we all know that HP is 11 on the first book, heck the whole book starts a little before HP 11th birthday, by the 7th book he's turning 17.

And between 11 and 17 there is a world of difference. Not only to mention the jump start Harry was forced on his first year.

I think an animated series, if well done, would be awesome.
There are very few animated series (that I know of) that actually have the characters aging and developing as a series goes on. Even fewer are well-done to the point where you actually notice the differences.

I'm not against an animated series. I agree that it would be awesome if done well. Whoever would end up doing the show would have to take the source material seriously and I've seen cases in both America and Japan where this just wasn't the case.
