Re: NEW PROJECT by JKR: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - The Film

We we know that this first installment is based in New York City, so I'm thinking that he'll be focusing on North American based creatures to start. It would be interesting to see him go to different continents through the trilogy.
That would be a great nod to how widespread the HP fandom is, and a way to incorporate some non-english speaking magic culture.

I think it would be an ideal opportunity to shape the tone of the whole trilogy, instead of taking what someone else started and adding your own personality on top of it. But I think it will largely depend on the release schedule, and they try to pack them all into a short period of time. But honestly, dragging them out to one every two years would probably be more lucrative vs one a year for 3 years.

is totally awesome!
