Do we have any Potterheads in the house? I personally am I HUGE Harry Potter fan and have loved their prequel series ‘Fantastic Beasts’ as well!
The Fantastic Beasts movies haven’t done quite as well as the Harry Potter series, but Warner Brothers may have something up their sleeves to give this spin off series a little boost.
The rumors are that Daniel Radcliffe is being asked to reprise his role as Harry Potter in one of the Fantastic Beast upcoming sequels. He would be a part of the fifth and final movie of the series.
The final movie is supposed to be a fast-forward to when Harry Potter as a grown up. And all of this falls back on the hope that Daniel Radcliffe will sign on to be a part of this awesome series!
It also depends on the success of any future Fantastic Beasts movies. With the series not doing quite as well as the Harry Potter series, it is said that this is another case of “franchise fatigue” and that fans may just be getting tired of the overall Harry Potter franchise (but I don’t see how!)
The third Fantastic Beasts movie is currently in the works, with a current release date being in November of 2021.
Due to the recent effects of the coronavirus, we don’t know yet if it is going to stay on track to still release then or not. But this will give them more time to woo Daniel Radcliffe to jump on board!
Here’s to hoping it all works out. I would be fine with prequels and sequels until my dying day because I am such a Harry Potter fan. But we shall see.
Until then, I look forward to the continuing story line of Fantastic Beasts and how it unfolds!
