Just when you thought that eight films was enough and the Harry Potter franchise was behind us, it’s been announced that there is going to be a trilogy based on the spinoff novel, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”
I was a big Harry Potter fan. The books and the films. The book, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” never really caught my attention though, and I never ended up reading it. I can’t believe they’re going to make three films out of this, but I guess they want to make as much money as possible of what Harry Potter magic they have left. After all, the book was only 54 pages.
The first film takes place around 7 years before the start of “Harry Potter”, but it’s not necessarily a prequel. Just a story that has to do with the same world everything else took place in.
I don’t know how three films are going to be made off a 54 page book, but I guess they need to make as much money as possible. Once again, the rich get richer. The fact that J.K. Rowling is still making money off this franchise is unbelievable…good for her. I also like that she’s not just sitting around doing nothing, as she’s written some decent novels that have nothing to do with Harry Potter.
