While the Harry Potter films began as content for children, as they actors who played the characters became adults, the tone of the films also became more adult with each entry into the franchise. The same seems to be the case for the Potterverse spinoff, Fantastic Beasts.
Dan Fogler, whose career has been fun to watch over the last several years, now plays a muggle named Jacob Kowalski in the Fantastic Beasts series. Kowalski is more or less the magicless sidekick of Newt Scamander. The actor says he sequel will push all the characters to the edge, and in Fogler’s eyes, that’s a good thing. While attending a round table interview, LRM was able to here Fogler’s thoughts on the subject.
“Yeah it’s hard man. We get put through the gauntlet, everyone’s relationship gets stretched, in the movie. It’s what you want to happen, you know. If everything is just fine, it’s not good adventure drama. Right you need the- … The boat to get rocked.”

Fantastic Beasts is one of the franchises I anxiously wait to be released. While I can’t say for sure I will be in the theater opening day for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, I am going to try to do so, and at the very least watch it opening weekend.
