Fantastic Beasts sequel release date announced!
« on: August 03, 2016, 10:55:02 AM »
Today, Warner Bros. announced the release date for the second 'Fantastic Beasts' film - November 16, 2018! It's a bummer we'll have to wait two years, but I think I'm okay with that overall - it means the new film trilogy will last longer.

The interesting quote from the EW story:

Quote
The new film, Warner Bros. said in a statement, “moves deeper into an increasingly dark time for the wizarding world, where Newt and our other heroes have to decide on their allegiances.”

At San Diego Comic-Con last month, Yates teased that Rowling had already written the script for the sequel, which takes the story “in a whole new direction.”

Not surprising at all that Rowling has a new turn for the second movie. I love the idea that we might get a totally unique story, but still follow Newt - similar to how we read the Potter books.

I'm really looking forward to this set of movies. It's going to be awesome and so expansive.

I secretly hope that they call the second movie "Fantastic Beasts and Where Else to Find Them" :P

It'll be really interesting to see where these go, especially with how dark the Potter movies actually got, and I wonder if the FB movies will go on a similar path.

I like how it will take a darker turn. The first movie seems like it will be quite lighthearted, even with the bad stuff that is going down. I'm very excited that she actually wrote the scripts for both of these movies, instead of somebody else. The story needs to say in her hands. :)

And the third one: "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Even More of Them?"

I'm a bit bummed too about having to wait two years, but I guess we've waited so long already, what's another couple of years? ;)

LOL yes, exactly, Conor.

Or "Fantastic Beasts and Where The Wild Things Are" ...

It sucks having to wait for 2 years, but I can certainly understand them not wanting to release next November -- I don't think I'd want my movie to go up against Star Wars VIII in 2017 either LOL. I suppose it could have made more sense for an early winter release though -- January or February or something.

Hey, back in the day we had to wait three years between Star Wars movies, and we survived.  And wrote lots and lots of fanfic to fill in the time and explore the theories about answers to open questions.  At least now we have places like this to get together and speculate in realtime.  Imagine how frustrating it was without the Internet!
