J.K. Rowling Has Finished The Script For Fantastic Beasts 2

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was kind of an odd movie. It made $814 million at the worldwide box office, but it doesn't feel like anyone is really talking about it that much. There was the announcement that Jude Law will be playing young Dumbledore, but aside from that, we haven't heard that much […]

Everything Wrong With Fantastic Beasts…

Just recently watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and liked the movie well enough. I've read the Harry Potter books, seen the movies and liked the idea of expanding the universe… but the scenes I saw of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) seemed a bit odd. But that knock is nothing like what the […]

Potter Rumors, New Trilogies, and Savage Shutdowns

There has been recent discussion about a brand new film trilogy centered around the life of Harry Potter and his children.

Jared Harris Responds To Rumours About Playing Young Dumbledore

There has been a lot of noise made about Jared Harris playing young Dumbledore in a Fantastic Beasts sequel.

Newt Scamander Won't Be The Main Character Of All The Fantastic Beasts Films

There are some spoilers for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them below, so be mindful! Newt Scamander struck me as a strange character to hang a franchise on in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Not because I disliked him, but more because he obviously enjoys being alone or with his animals, having a fair […]

Fantastic Beasts Sequel Won't Be Entirely Set In Paris

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is out at the cinema now and killing it. The focus of bringing the Wizarding World to New York in the 1920s really freshens up the series, and I'm totally on board for more. The franchise is going to be going somewhere else in the sequel though. It […]

Fantastic Beasts Sequel Titling Revealed By Eddie Redmayne

So, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is out today. It's a weird movie, but one that I think is pretty rad too. It's set to somewhat set the world on fire, reviving the Wizarding World series with a reported four more on their way too. One thing that hasn't been entirely clear yet, is how […]

David Yates Is Set To Direct All Of The Fantastic Beasts Films

Dumbledore's Sexuality Might Be Explored In Future Fantastic Beasts Sequels

It's not a new revelation that Albus Dumbledore might be gay. J.K. Rowling has quite famously said in the past that she thinks of the character in that light, and that his biggest love was Gellert Grindelwald. As we have found out very recently too, Johnny Depp will be playing Grindelwald and a younger version of […]
