The world of “Harry Potter” expands with the upcoming spinoff series “Fantastic Beasts And Where The To Find Them,” the first in a new trilogy, with longtime franchise helmer David Yates directing. But as fans of the series have grown older, it would seem this new chapter will be more mature as well.
” ‘Fantastic Beasts’ is very much in the spirit of the ‘Potter’ books but it’s not filled with young children and their issues. I wouldn’t say it’s ‘dark’ but, as with all of Jo [Rowling]’s work, it’s not soft. There is material in all of the books that has a truth about life. Here, there’s darkness within. But there are also these creatures, and an awful lot of humour and heart – which I think will appeal to young and old alike,” Yates revealed to Total Film earlier this year.
