Fantastic Beasts hasn’t dropped yet. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t getting itself a sequel. I mean, why wouldn’t it be getting a sequel? Fucking Potter fans are like us Star Wars fans, they’ll snag anything related to the franchise. License to print money, et cetera. I’d be judgmental about it, if I didn’t relate to it so much.
This…this is going to interest someone around here, right? I’m posting this story. For you. For you.
J.K. Rowling can’t seem to quit Harry Potter, and I can’t seem to blame her. It’s a goddamn cash cow. And, you know, it’s beloved by millions who will happily slurp on the teat of New Content from their beloved universe. Which, as a Star Wars sloven, I completely get.
Were you sweating the BBC/HBO MEGAZORD MINI-SERIES adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy? Truthfully – I wasn’t. But I reckon there’s enough J.K. fans around here to justify blabbering about it.
J.K. Rowling news up in the heezy! The house! The hacienda! The author’s first “adult novel” (scare quotes to call attention to the somewhat nebulous term) is getting a miniseries courtesy of HBO. Not having read the book, I am still at least intrigued given the author and network.
More news on that Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts. Apparently it ain’t just going to be one movie. ‘Cause who the fuck does one movie anymore?! Losers. That’s who. It’s all about the trilogy. Truthfully, the odd, pseudo-meta premise of the book (inside a book? I think?) has me intrigued. So while I’m not particularly sure what the fuck it is all about, I’m willing to preemptively dig on it.
If you’re one of those people who was all “Hermione+Ron OTP for lyfe bruh!“, J.K. Rowling is shitting on your Potter existence. Years after the Potter Saga ended in a shit-confetti explosion of fan service in that god forsaken epilogue, Rowling is coming out and saying she got the Hermione relationship wrong.
The Boy Who Lived Universe! continues to swell, and why should it? Potter fans want more, god dammit!, more! I am no one to begrudge them this desire. With every new Marvel or Star Wars announcement, my sad little gathering of atoms in my groin flare momentarily to life. Let us have our favorite universes into perpetuity.
Ohhhhhhhhh Potter fans! Slap on a diaper and prepare yourself for this news blast upside your wands. (Doesn’t make sense, I know.) J.K. Rowling has officially announced her next novel.
I’m a fan of Harry Potter, but as the years have passed I’ve found the movies to be less and less magical and the final novel adequate at best. You know what could have made it more enjoyable for me? A little treat tossed towards my blood lust.
