If you haven't heard of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, I'm honestly not surprised. As far as I know it was only mentioned once in the Harry Potter series, on the list of required texts for first year students (The Sorcerer's Stone, 67). It was written by J.K. Rowling for charity, and it was designed to look like it was one of Harry's textbooks, complete with his notes in the margins.
THREE MOVIES. They will be completely separate from the Harry Potter stories, instead following around the "author" of the book, Newt Scamander.
I'm going to be honest, I really wanted to see something else happen with the Harry Potter universe, but this wasn't it. Granted, this movie poster does look pretty awesome...but I don't believe that there is a movie worth of material, let alone three of them! The book itself is pretty basic, talking about what beasts are, why they matter, and an A-Z listing of the animals and their classifications.
I will definitely go see the movies when they come out, because yay! Harry Potter! But I'm really afraid these movies could disappoint fans and tarnish the series' credibility.
What are your thoughts on a Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film trilogy?
