The next Billion dollar movie franchise may come from an unlikely place, but if you look at the broader picture of Harry Potter’s wizarding world and the continuing drama inside pottermore, you know that it’s a know-brainer for Hollywood.
JK Rowling recently announced that the Fantastic Beasts movie will start a new Wizarding World franchise that will span four more movies after it! The movies, prequels to Harry Potter’s story, will trace the rise of a powerful wizard named Gellert Grindelwald and his eventual 1945 duel with Albus Dumbledore.
That little tidbit of the the history of magic was explored a bit in the Harry Potter books, but it’s pretty amazing to see how all this will play out on the big screen and if social media is any hint, it’s going to be a big success. So what does that mean for the future of the Wizarding World? If such a small detail in the Harry Potter books can actually be expanded into five movies, the sky is the limit.
