Cultural News After Fantastic Beasts and Hogwarts Legacy, 10 possible spin-offs in the Harry Potter universe

While we are waiting for Hogwarts Legacy on the video game side, we must also expect new films and series. Warner has indeed expressed its desire to exploit a little more the universe of Harry Potter. What to expect ? Here are 10 spin-off ideas that will delight budding wizards and avid Potterheads.

The Founders of Hogwarts

After exploring Hogwarts from top to bottom in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll definitely want to delve into the story of its creation. The British school of wizardry, recognized as one of the best in the world, was founded by four powerful wizards: Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Salazar Slytherin and Rowena Ravenclaw. That, you know. But do you know the reason behind this big decision? Don’t you want to understand how the four founders ended up tearing themselves apart? A trip back to the Middle Ages, where wizards were persecuted by Muggles, would be the perfect starting point for a spin-off series. The opportunity to discover the wizarding world as you’ve never seen it before.

The Marauders

“I solemnly swear I am up to no good.” If you recognize this sentence, you also know where we are coming from. Do you miss Sirius and Remus? Want to discover this dear James? To see how Peter was before joining the Dark Arts? Rediscovering the student atmosphere of Hogwarts a few years before the adventures of dear Harry, isn’t that all we want? Discover the childhood of characters that we liked to follow, see how the love was created that will give birth to the Chosen One? A good wave of nostalgia that still offers a wind of novelty, here’s a simple spin-off idea that will delight Potterheads of all stripes.

The Order of the Phoenix

This is another spin-off related to the adventures we know: the birth of the Order of the Phoenix. Admittedly, the fifth book/film is called Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but it does not speak of the original Order, the one which opposed Voldemort in the 70s. The opportunity to find Albus Dumbledore or James and Lily Potter, but also to meet well-known characters like Frank and Alice Longbottom. A spin-off of this kind would also return to the rise of the Dark Lord. How did he become such a feared dark mage? How did he manage to rally so many Death Eaters? How did he change the face of the magical world? So many questions that could be answered in a spin-off of this genre that would speak to everyone.

Dumbledore/Grindelwald

After introducing us to Norbert Dragonneau (or Newt Scamander for fans of the original versions), the saga Fantastic Beasts focused on a particularly important duo: enemy brothers Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald. If the bad figures of the last film risk depriving us of the final fight between the two former lovers, that does not mean that we can no longer see them on the screen. It would indeed be interesting to see the youth of this dear Albus on the shores of Gellert, in order to discover him under another eye. The former headmaster of Hogwarts has a heavy and dark past. Between his sister’s sad end and his quest to become the most powerful wizard, whatever the cost, there are some interesting things to tell about this time with a spin-off.

The Origin Story of Bellatrix Lestrange

When looking to do a spin-off of a well-known work, the origin story seems the easiest option. And in the Harry Potter universe, there are a good number of characters who deserve such consideration. The fans have understood this well and have also made a film returning to the origin story of Voldemort. We could have opted for the youth of Tom Jedusor. Or Severus Snape’s not-so-cheerful one. And perhaps a good dozen examples come to mind right now. But the case that interests us today is that of Bellatrix Lestrange. Little is known about the fiery Death Eater, and that’s what makes her a perfect candidate for a origin story. After all, don’t you want to know how this young woman could sink so much into madness and devotion?

Hogwarts, yes, but the others then?

We are starting to enter the category of spin-offs that will mainly speak to fans of the universe. Because we are not going to lie to each other, selling a spin-off project that is neither linked to characters already known or to Hogwarts seems difficult. And yet, it would be so interesting to be able to discover the other schools of the wizarding world. Perhaps the opportunity for Warner to try a completely different kind of series. A romantic comedy within Beauxbatons, conspiracies in the corridors of Durmstrang, a teen drama at Ilvermorny, a story against a backdrop of Shinto mythology at Mahoutokoro, a gripping investigation at Koldovstoretz, a drama for the students of Castelobruxo or even a frank comedy at Uagadou. Possibilities, there are a lot. The opportunity to rediscover the world of wizards while traveling once.

Quidditch through the ages

If Hogwarts Legacy will not allow us to ride our broom to embark on a frenzied game of Quidditch, perhaps we can still hope to see this sport being honored through its own spin-off. But what form could this take? Well, we could follow a team throughout a decisive season or a particular player. On Reddit, some even had fun imagining a scenario in which a coach of a Muggle sport would discover the wizarding world through Quidditch or who would highlight the cultural differences between the United Kingdom and the United States. For my part, I can well imagine a series shot like a sports documentary. The latter are on the rise at the moment, in particular thanks to Drive to Survive. So why not try it a little differently with Quidditch?

Fantastic Beasts (the real ones)

Yes, there are already movies Fantastic Beasts inspired by the book of the same name. But as we said, the latter quickly abandoned magical creatures to focus on Dumbledore and Grindelwald. The poor little beasts deserved much better. And since we were talking just before about a series mixing fiction and documentary, why not stay on it? A humorous mini-series with Norbert presenting an offbeat animal documentary, I dream of it! The opportunity to discover creatures like the Abraxan, the Bicorne, the Boursouf, the Chaporouge, the Croup and so many other fantastic animals that have been ignored or barely mentioned until now. Finally a real way to discover the impressive bestiary written by this dear Dragonneau.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard

We continue with another of the little books written by JK Rowling, The Tales of Beedle the Bard. This collection of stories that Ron’s mother told him when he was a child includes of course the famous Tale of the Three Brothers, but not only. Again, a miniseries would be ideal to provide insight into the breadth of these tales. And this time, why not opt ​​for animation, a bit like Princes and Princesses. It is indeed by using shadows that the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows told us the story of the three brothers. We can therefore easily imagine the same kind of process for a very short series telling the stories of the Sorcerer and the Jumping Pot or the Fountain of Good Fortune.

The misdeeds of Peeves

Still on the animation side, why not focus on the character of Peeves? Almost delivered with the walls of Hogwarts, the poltergeist has committed many misdeeds over the centuries. Some are known (the episode of the failed trap of Aygron Carpet) while others are just waiting to be invented. A series like this would finally see Peeves on screen. An emblematic figure of Hogwarts in the books, he is indeed absent from the films. The few scenes including it were not kept during the final cut. The opportunity would be perfect to right that wrong, and Peeves would be right at home in such a comedy series.
