"Fantastic Beasts" Producer Talks The Spin-Off

26 January 2016 8:24 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The first trailer for the "Harry Potter" spin-off "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" hit last year and was met with a soft response. Even so, Warners is still moving forward with plans for a proposed trilogy starting with this first entry in November.

Producer David Heyman, who was also involved in the original "Harry Potter" films, says they're approaching these movies one picture at a time. Speaking with THR he says:

"We've talked about making a couple, but with all these things - and this may be a failing of mine - I don't look at them as franchises; I look at them as films. We want to make each film as good as we can because if you don't, you won't have a second film or a third."

Heyman also spoke about the genesis of the picture, something that came about following talks between himself, producer Lionel Wigram »

Fast forward to 2016 and with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them launching later this year, the creative team have once again found themselves knee-deep in perplexing spells and magical creatures.

But what distinguishes the upcoming spinoff from WB’s financial juggernaut is the period in which it is set. Long before the birth of the Boy Who Lived, a certain magizoologist prodigy known as Newt Scamander traversed the world in search of those elusive oddities, before making tracks to New York during the roaring ’20s with a briefcase full of Fantastic Beasts in tow.

While fans of the Harry Potter movies have to be excited about the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, it struck many of us as an odd choice for a movie when we first learned about it. The original book is essentially a school textbook, not a novel, which makes it a strange piece of source material. Now, the film.s producer has spoken out about how the plan came about. It.s no surprise that the people behind the original series of films would be looking for a way to return to that world. The original series of films were incredibly successful so from a business standpoint, of course you want to keep that going. David Heyman and Lionel Wigram were two of the original producers behind the film franchise and one day the two were simply batting about ideas. Heyman tells The Hollywood Reporter that Wigram »
