    Woah, feisty main discussion ladies.
    However, i think it’s a little naive to think that Jo has free creative reign over the contents of the Fantastic Beasts films, or any part of the Wizarding World franchise – you should get Michael in on the subject!
    There will be a team of script writers, including Steve Kloves on the films. And I have always thought that WB will steer the story in certain direction and will be mightily surprised if the films don’t go to Asia… Harry Potter is huge in Japan for example and WB would be short sighted NOT to include that in the story line. And actually this could fit, if there are meant to be echos of WW II in the story. Or am I getting my evil wizards muddled?!
