So Harry Potter fans…here’s the big news you have been waiting for…the next trilogy from the Harry Potter universe. Yeah…not the continuation of the series as we wanted, but a spin-off trilogy based on the book, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them” by J K Rowling is wonderful news. The book will be divided into three movies each to be released in 2016, 2018, and 2020, respectively, as per the tweet from Wall Street Journal reporter Ben fritz. Keven Tsujihara, CEO, Warner Bros., has quoted that the project will be ‘at least a trilogy”, so we can be still be hopeful that there is room for more after that.
It is not unusual for film adaptations from books to be extended into more than a single movie. We have already seen the ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” made into two parts. We have also seen the first 2 of the ‘The Hobbit” trilogy. The last books of the ‘Twilight” and “Hunger Games” series were also split into two. But who’s complaining…we would love to watch more and more of our fantasy characters to come to life on screen.
