Earlier today we learned that Warner Bros. has MAJOR plans to split the new 'Fantastic Beasts' adaptation into three films! What was the reason behind this? How was the news released? 

  • What did Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara say about the upcoming films?
  • Fresh energy, and excitement about the project.
  • What IS a megamovie? 
  • Other film franchises have split their movies into trilogies, so how will 'Fantastic Beasts' compare?
  • Will each film be a continuation of the previous, or will we see different stories in different films?
  • The hosts agree that a novelization of the films will never occur, and we explain why!
  • Will any of the 'Potter' films cast make cameo's? You'd be surprised to hear who said they would want to!
