Fantastic Beasts To Be ‘At Least’ A Trilogy

jkrWarner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara told New York Times that J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spinoff will at least be a trilogy. JK Rowling: ‘When I say he made ‘Fantastic Beasts’ happen, it isn’t P.R.-speak but the literal truth.

We had one dinner, a follow-up telephone call, and then I got out the rough draft that I’d thought was going to be an interesting bit of memorabilia for my kids and started rewriting! When Kevin got the top job, he brought a new energy, which rubbed off. He’s a very engaging person, thoughtful and funny.’

The three Fantastic Beasts films will be ‘megamovies.’ The film will follow Newt Scamander long before Harry’s journey began. They are not prequels or sequels. They will ‘start in’ New York. A director and release date haven’t been set.

    My heart aches for Harry Potter <3 I just wish there were more but deep down I know that his story is over. Sobbbb. Maybe this will fill the void?

    • Astoria_Malfoy

      I would rather have some Marauders stories.

      • honesty

        What is that?

        • Astoria_Malfoy

          ah, James Potter, Sirius Back, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew. They created the Marauders map?

          “Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs
          Purveyors of Aids to Magical Mischief Makers
          Are proud to present
          THE MARAUDER’S MAP” .

            That would’ve been awesome! Getting to see that gang as teens.. sigh.

          • Astoria_Malfoy

            yeap. A young Sirius Black.

          • A Cat

            I was seriously depressed when he died in the books. It would kind of be painful but in the best way to watch them as kids knowing their fates.

          • Astoria_Malfoy

            I cried my eyes out for like a week. It was like Jo had given Harry a promise of a better life with someone who cared about him on book 3, and then after getting so close together, after so little time, he was taken away from Harry. And then when Lupin died, it was horrible. Harry’s last tie to his father.

          • A Cat

            Didn’t Jo mention she was originally going to kill Arthur Weasley off as well? She just wants to murder every bit of happiness in Harry’s life lmfao

          • Astoria_Malfoy

            and Ron… I think. She wanted to kill him as well. I am glad she didn’t, because I LOVE the sibling-like relationship between Harry and Hermione.

          • A Cat

            Speaking of Harry and Hermione.. when Jo revealed that she now regrets pairing Ron with her, did she say if she wanted Harry to be her romantic interest now? Or she just didn’t want any of them paired together in general now?

          • Astoria_Malfoy

            She wanted a HermionexHarry ending.

          • honesty

            She said she went through a difficult time and was taking it out on the book with all the deaths. She wanted to kill off a lot. Lol.

          • honesty

            Ohhhhhhhhhhh omg, that’d be great!
