The numbers agree: there’s going to be a new film set in the world of Harry Potter!
We’re a little embarrassed we didn’t know about this already. John and I are huge Potter fans. Maybe even the biggest in Pennsylvania. So imagine our surprise when we stumbled across the IMDB page for something called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Needless to say, the box office report immediately took a back seat.
This is–hands down–the best news we’ve read all year! Better than Jurassic World out-grossing almost everything ever made. Better than rumors of a Jurassic World sequel. Better than the Target down the street discounting its Jurassic World merchandise. We’re calling it: Fantastic Beasts will be 2016’s Jurassic World. Dinosaurs are out. Wizards are back in!
No word yet on if Fantastic Beasts has impacted Jurassic World‘s gross in any way. More on this story as it develops.
