    That's weird, yes. And the only possibility at this moment is regarding Newt Scamander because we know of no other characters that will be involved in this series. I'd actually be very happy if they went with the unknown actor approach again. But the tweet seems like too much of a giveaway for something so significant and this early too.

    This is exciting news! It feels great waiting for something Harry Potter-related again. The time between the final film and now was awful. I'm a bit skeptical of what the film will be like though... currently I'm envisioning this bright and light-hearted comedy for some reason... Hopefully there is a balance between humour and seriousness.

    Knowing JK, there will be humor in it. Subtle, but maybe dark, humor.

    I hope so! Above all I just want to see that magical world again.

    It could be young James Sirius Potter reading the textbook at school to drive the story... Kind of like Neverending Story where the kid reads it in the present time but the main events take place in another time and place.

    Almost similar to the Hobbit in a way, only show young James at the beginning and end.

    I don't think it will be linked to the future in such proportion. Maybe some names will sound familiar, but I really think they want to do this 'wizarding world' franchise, so a complete new story in another time frame.

    If they do it this way, and i hope they do, they will have tons of options. The Harry Potter Series and Fantastic Beasts won't be the only thing that the Wizarding World Franchise includes then.

    The Wizarding World has an enormous amount of potential for expansion. The new film series shows that, and it certainly won't stop there.

    I hope they do it that way as well but if he ends up cast in the same role then I could see that being the scenario.

    I would prefer it had no forced connection to Harry's ordeal. Organic mentions are fine.

    I really wouldn't mind if it were called "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them", but it would be hard to sell and they're trying to build a franchise. I just really hope they don't come up with "Newt Scamander and whatever the story's focus", emulating Harry Potter. I'm all for a main title like "Pirates of the Caribbean" and a subtitle for each installment.

    I see this thing as a kind of opportunity for something whimsical, like a quest to find some mythical creature like the Nundu or something. No need for a big antagonistic dark wizard like Grindelwald or whatever.

    I don't know why people are thinking about all these hot young actors for Newt though. I kind of pictured some cantankerous old buffoon in the same vein as Jim Broadbent.

    There's just so many things to look forward to. Just small things like what the title font will look like. I can't wait for the whole new creation of musical themes as well.

    Because Newt was in his 20s/Early 30s during the 1920s.

    That was used to put further emphasis on Harry's scar; there would be no reason for it to be used here.

    We don't know what they'll do yet, but I'd like to see something old-fashioned, to go with the time.

    If they do go with the quest themed film, I think 'Fantastic Beasts and where to find them' could work great as a title.
  • chesterchester Posts: 4,331 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I wonder how they'll make the audience aware the movie is Potter related.

  • chesterchester Posts: 4,331 ✭✭✭✭✭
    They could add Hedwig's theme to the trailer so people will know it's Potter related.

    'The Wizarding World is back
    blah blah blah
    the makers of Harry Potter now present
    The Adventures of Newt Scamander: Fantastic Beasts and where to find them'

    there you go

    I hope they don't. I want something new and original (preferably from whoever the composer will be) and while Hedwig's Theme is iconic, it shouldn't be used as a marketing tool.

    From the people who brought you the most successful film series of all time, Harry Potter, comes The Adventures of Newt Scamander: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

    I want an adventure, and with that title, you bring people in straight away. It'll gain interest, and the book's name will bring it back to Harry Potter.

    I disagree, I'm perfectly fine with hedwigs theme and the same font for brand recognition and marketing.

    No bad idea if they do this they would give bread to those who said HP is a Milking machine to WB

    Then you're perfectly fine with it being unoriginal?

    They don't have to use Hedwig's Theme as a whole for the trailer. They could use it for a little part and a few notes to let people subtly know it's Potter related.

    Lord Stafford.

    They can do whatever they want with it. I think a few subtle hints of Hedwig's theme will be more efficient that the font.

    I just feel that since this isn't a Harry Potter reboot, having everything the same in order for WB to promote the film series would be the wrong thing to do. I could understand it if like Star Wars in 1999 it was a reboot, but it isn't; this is something new and different, so it should be treated as such.
