I've talked about my lack of love for the Harry Potter films in the past and I've also spoken of my hope that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will exceed the previous films, quality wise.
That hope just quadrupled with the news that it's not a one off film, but the first of five...
Dear cinema gods, please don't let this be just a money grabbing ploy (at least not solely), but an attempt to expand on the Harry Potter universe in an entertaining and enjoyable way.
I have to admit my optimism for this film is flagging at this point but I look forward to seeing it in cinemas.
Here's to hoping it exceeds and all expectations.
