The Harry Potter Franchise is in desperate need of a resurrection stone.
Though the main films ended in 2011 with the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Warner Bros. don't want their beloved universe to stop printing them money.
In 2016, they released a spinoff called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and a sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Both films received lukewarm receptions, and Crimes of Grindelwald grossed less than every single other Harry Potter film. Ouch.
Similarly, author JK Rowling hasn't been helping things. She continually tweets out unnecessary details about the wizarding world, like how Hogwarts used to not have bathrooms, so wizards would just magic their poop invisible.
Rowling has also recently drawn controversy for some transphobic tweets, which is especially not cool when your books are about how awful it is to live in a closet.
It's clear that the franchise needs a shot of new life if Warner Bros. want to milk it some more, and Fantastic Beasts and Rowling's tweets aren't the best ways to keep it alive. Here are 5 spinoff films they could make that would magically bring Harry Potter back to life.
