There’s a growing trend in the film industry, to establish an onscreen universe and keep it going for as long as possible. Marvel set the bar with their cinematic universe, and now DC Comics is also following suit with the announcement of their 10 film schedule through 2020.
But the latest to join in on the trend is Harry Potter. We all know and love the first 8 films, and most of us know about the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Which is set to be another adventure in the Harry Potter universe.
But WB just announced that Fantastic Beasts will be a trilogy at least. With the possibility of more movies to follow. Definitely leaves the big Potter fans like Brad Reifler interested in what’s to come. But I hope the plot can keep up. There were so many Harry Potter movies because there was a great plot.
With a name like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, I hope there’s still substance, and not just a wand waving special effects fest.
