Recently at The Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Fan Event in London. J.K Rowling writer of the film and past Harry Potter novels. She announced that the Harry Potter spin-off would indeed not be a trilogy like originally thought, but consist of five films compiling the new franchise.
We already knew that new movies were in the works the sequel started filming in August and apparently J.K Rowling has been plotting out the future of the series to what she thought best suited the adaptation.
The film releasing worldwide on November 16th will hold a lot of pressure. Warner Brothers is counting on a big financial gain, and it will prove the test to see if the wider wizarding world is worth exploring and can gain the kind of success the previous films have.
I do think that five films seems to be a bit excessive and feel it would be better wrapped up in a trilogy,but I suppose if we want it to reach the same level of magnitude that the original potter films have, this seems to be the way to go.
Personally I am still extremely excited for this film all the cast involved David Yates, and Eddie Redmayne I both have a lot of faith in and believe this film is turning out to look great.
