Every day, conversations in the film community gravitate to how DC, Marvel and Lucasfilm are working on huge, interconnected universes on the big screen. Innumerable other franchises are emulating this blueprint too, whether it be the Universal Monsters or Ghostbusters. But a similar franchise largely kept out of the conversation is Harry Potter.
In the next decade, we’re going to get at least three new films in Potter’s universe. The spin-off series, set years before Harry’s story, is called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. J.K.
