Yes, I’ve let the site slide for quite awhile, but now is the time to bring it back. There’s a lot to talk about!
Item #1: Fantastic Beasts. It’s much, much more than just a story about magical beasts lost in the streets of New York. It strikes at the core Potter mythology in unexpected ways.
Item #2: A complete re-read of the Harry Potter series, with a focus on the role of power – who seizes it and who gains it without seeking. I think that the Fantastic Beasts series will also be moving in this direction.
I’ll give the movie a day or two to sink in, and then I’ll start writing about it.
Glad to be back!
