Warner Bros. Announces: 3 ‘Harry Potter’ Spin-Offs?…


Date: November 24, 2014

…Warner Bros. Announces 10 DC Movies, 3 Lego Movies and 3 ‘Harry Potter’ Spin-Offs…

“Outside of the DC properties, the studio will also further explore J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter mythology with three movies to be released in 2016, 2018 and 2020 based on her Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them novella. The first movie, which features Rowling’s screenwriting debut, will be directed by Potter veteran David Yates.”

Something to look forward too…”Harry Potter movies”, without Harry Potter…presumably.

I’m intrigued, over whether they are going to follow on with any established characters…or if the cast will be entirely new…I wonder if these are supposed to pre-date the original series…Could be interesting, if it tells the backstories of older HP characters.

I’m glad to see this, because in terms of future outlook…I don’t see much on the horizon, that really makes me want to get back to the theater…I mean, the final Hobbit movie, sure…but after a few tacky things they slipped into the last Hobbit movie, I’m even a bit less excited to go see that…The DC Justice League movies are feeling lukewarm to me, at best.

It was a bit depressing, when the HP series came to an end, because there were supposed to be no more…and this was such an excellently done series…We could not expect anything quite like it, ever again…Which was a real shame, considering this is a proven winning formula.

You know…at times I’ve thought they should take the phenomenally successful movies, and treat them like they do the James Bond series…make a movie, then shelve the series for three to five years…make another movie, and shelve it again for three to five years [unless any of the movies intimately tie into one another, and depend on each other]. At the very least…so long as they maintain a standard of quality, it will keep the fans happy and they can keep milking the cash cow.

Granted…it’s not impossible that this new “HP” trilogy will bomb…but it’s not likely, either…and it could open up a whole lot of future possibilities.
