Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them 5-film series

Rowlings should just write new Harry Potter novels based on his adult life (or whatever age the actors happen to be now), so they can keep making new HP movies with the old cast over the years to come...until Harry is old like Dumbledore

Harry as a Hogwarts teacher and episodic events that happen at the school over the years

If Disney took it over that's what they'd do

Hmm, actually I'm convinced that's what will happen eventually

Nah I don't think so. Rowling doesn't seem to want to return to Harry's story she's happy to do things that expand the world but nothing like a sequel series. Plus, I'm pretty sure it'll be a long time before Daniel Radcliffe will take on that role again as been working very hard to avoid typecasting and fair play to him it seems to be working.

Given enough time, sequels will happen. I'm glad we have the Fantastic Beasts series to hold that off for a while longer and keep WB and Rowling occupied.

They should do a film series of her Cormoran Strike-novels. The Silkworm is amazing.
Or a Poirot-like series in a few years, when there are more books.

I think each of those novels would make a nice 2-3 part miniseries on the BBC. Hope it happens when she has released a few more of them.

Looking forward to the Casual Vacancy series too. I enjoyed that book but I don't think it was what a lot of people expected.

I enjoyed it as well, very Dickensian. Not for anyone, though, and definitely not a new 'Potter'. The Comoran Strike-novels are probably a lot more appealing to the general public, because her main characters are much more sympathetic.

You always struck me as someone who would be quite good in gay sex.

Though you'd cry afterwards.

Oooh, good for David Yates wanting to stick with 35mm. Rousselot is a hard-line film cinematographer, and he's absolutely wonderful at capturing different aesthetics.

Ah, I had forgotten Yates was directing this. Makes me so much less interested than I already was

Mhm yeah, his Potter movies were a real mixed bag. I hope the storytelling will hold together a little better, at least, with Rowling writing directly for the screen, but I would have much preferred they went with Cuaron or someone completely new.

I love Cuaron's Prisoner of Azkaban and would have liked to see what he would have done with the rest of the series plus JW, of course. However I did like the direction of Goblet of Fire. Yates just sucks the magic out of everything.

I hope Yates stays away from Cuckoo's Calling. He's not great at shooting whodunnits.

J.K. Rowling is taking her detective novel series to television, so I'm not too worried about David Yates getting his hands on that. The only TV shows he did post-Potter was the pilot for "Tyrant."

Yates is such a pedestrian filmmaker. Completely void of the creativity shown by Cuaron, which is entirely fitting for the Potter universe.

Almost no interest in this now.

I have no idea how crossing the street reflects on one's filmmaking abilities.

Yates is as boring as walking.

David Yates again?

Fuck me, those last few Potter films couldn't have been less interesting, save for DH 1.

Skip.
