    I actually don't mind this. It's a pretty dense universe with plenty of stories that can be told, and since Rowling is involved it'll probably be in line with the Potter flicks.

    The Harry Potter universe always felt like it had a ton of stuff we never saw or experienced. It's the mark of a good imaginary universe and it also means that this won't feel forced. These can function both as prequels and as complete side stories that reveal more creatures, locations, and events.

    They are better than fun. And this is from someone who initially read them reluctantly.

    Same here. I didn't start reading them until Order of the Pheonix came out. And that was only because I worked at Barnes and Noble at the time and saw the massive fandom for the books and decided to give them a try. It's just about time for my annual re-reading of them too.

    Never read the books and have only seen one of the movies. No particular reason.
