I think there was something else besides British actors, since there is nothing wrong with British playing British. However point remains, Disney lost the opportunity to get lots and lots of money because they want to do it their way. You can play with your own stories but when it comes to someones else, keep your interpretations to yourself. Yes, it was suppose to be an exact replica, just like JK wanted, not inspiration by HP. Universal made a great move and I am sure Disney is very sorry they did not. Same with Cameron. I am not saying Avatar could be as popular as HP, we did not see others movies yet, but it is about same attitude, same mistakes Disney makes when it comes to working with others.
