Unpopular opinion time!
One lifelong Harry Potter fan who grew up with the books, literally, has taken to the Guardian to ask J.K. Rowling to please just stop.
The release of the movie Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was the last straw for Pauline Bock.
She argues that the seven-book series and its eight movie adaptations should have been sufficient.
“We didn’t and don’t need a community website, a theatre play, the printed script of said play, a new movie, the printed script of said movie, and even more movies,” Bock writes of the follow-ups that have fallen short, in her eyes, of the originals’ charm.
What about you, fellow Harry Potter fans? Are you thrilled that your beloved series lives on, or do the extensions bore you?
