Alfonso Cuaron Won't Be Directing Harry Potter Fantastic Beasts Spinoff
When we factor in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and more recently, the visual feast that was Gravity, it's not wonder that people were excited by the idea that Alfonso Cuaron might be the one to helm the anticipated Harry Potter spinoff/prequel(ish) film(s) Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Alfonso Cuaron Up For Harry Potter Spin-Off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Movie Poster Mash-Ups Blend Together Your Favorite Blockbusters
Sometimes Fan Art is better than the actual art studios put out, mostly because it presents material that's already known to everyone – just in unique ways.

Harry Potter Prequel Headed To The Stage, J.K. Rowling To Co-Produce The Play
Hearing the phrase “Harry Potter prequel,” I automatically assume it’s either a story about Harry Potter’s parents and the Marauders, or it goes further back and tells the story of Dumbledore during any of that man’s fascinating past.
