It's not like people don't want more movies and I rather have a spinoff then more and more sequels.

I made no value judgment.

I'm actually happy that she's doing it.

I just said that I knew that she couldn't leave it alone...

I'de be willing to bet she could buy several and still not feel so much as a pinch.

You read the part about the inner cynic, yes? I'd think the answer to your question would be self evident.

Yea, and she never claimed she would never visit the Universe again, she only said Harry's story would be done, and in fact, near the end of the Septology, she did say it was possible she would revisit the Universe, but, she wanted to try other Genres first, and she has now Published 2 very different books not in the HP Universe, in two different genres/Sub-genres

There are a lot of wannabe "writers" who are jealous of her success.

That's THEIR problem.

Re: JK Rowling to revisit Harry Potter-verse for new movie series

Jo said that she would revisit the HP Universe if she came up with a story idea that she felt as passionate about as she did the original HP saga, and, it's clear that her imagination - and passion - was fired by Warner Bros. approaching her about the possibility of taking the sourcebook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and creating a filmic story out of its contents, which is why we're getting this new series.

I think this could be a fun fantasy film. Plus, Rowling said it starts in NYC so we'll get to see Wizarding America in the Jazz Age 20s.

Sounds fun. Barring horrendous reviews, I'll give JK the benefit of the doubt and check it out.

It just shares the title. This won't be an actual adaptation of the fictional book any more than Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was.
