    But she is actually personally writing the movies. There's a difference.

    I don't know why she didn't just write the stage play as well but...

    Tbh I wish she would just leave the series well enough alone.

    Why? If you dont want to watch them, you don't have to. It won't affect or change the originals. But it is more of the world, more of the characters. And that's a good thing.

    Also its a franchise worth billions, so they were eventually going to do prequels/sequels no matter what, be it books or movies, so better that she be involved than not, so we don't end up with another Cursed Child fiasco.

    I'm going to watch it. Its also not bad, but there is nothing wrong with letting something stand as it is, and let it stand to the test of time.

    If they show us inside of Ilvermorny they will get a big extra point from me.

    If Fantastic Beasts is a book or series, I haven't read it, so the movies can't ruin them for me like they did with the Harry Potter books. For that reason I did enjoy the first film because it was fresh and I had no expectations about the quality of the story going in for it to let me down. There was quite a bit that I found surprisingly likeable, such as it taking place in the U.S. for a change of pace in that universe; I had wondered what their magic society was like by comparison to European ones. Quite a bit more different than I would have thought, and for Muggle/No-Maj folk there as well. Also including one as part of the story was pretty endearing, and I hope Jacob and Queenie are able to be together in one of the movies, if not this next one.

    There is only one book of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them ... its actually a schoolbook and not a storybook( though Rowling did eventually print it,). So its hard for the movie to ruin that book ;P

    Yet it would be easy for it to ruin the series if it deviates too much from canonical events.

    At least Hufflepuff's name makes sense.

    They're people names, not animal names. There's no reason to expect their human names to match up with an animal other than the author being author-ey.

    Slytherin happens to align with snakes but its the only one of the four and its one of the ones that doesn't explicitly have an animal in the name.

    Heck, Griffindor is closely tied to the Phoenix and yet...

    I am a proud Hufflepuff, but it has yet to be explained why Hufflepuff's animal is a badger. Not that I'm against a badger, as badgers are fucking badass, but there's never been any hint why Helga Hufflepuff is a badger.

    It's true. People can choose whatever animal they want to represent their family/house. Why else would England's crest be a lion when there are no lions in England?

    True. We are such good "finders". Maybe that's why Newt Scamander has the job of finding Grindelwald so Dumbledore can take him down.

    Well the Hippogriff is sort of a lion-ish bird, so I don't see why they couldn't have used one of those to compromise between a lion and phoenix.

    Also, regarding Hufflepuff's badger, is it known whether they are particularly vicious mothers? Considering Helga seemed the most maternal of the Hogwarts founders, I would think her animal would be the one who most ardently protects its young. I know Grizzly bears have a rep like that but I'm not sure about other animals.

    Badgers are vicious in general, it would not surprise me if the mothers are particularly vicious. I don't know how big a presence they have in England, unlike here where they are known but not given much thought. If Hufflepuff were part of Ilvermorny then I'm pretty sure it would have been a Grizzly instead.

    I'd really like to see a documentary-style film of Quidditch Through the Ages.

    Wasn't it supposed to be more hazardous and dangerous back in the day? Like the old Triwizard Tournaments?

    Hmm, maybe, some of its predecessor games definitely were though.
