Could we not?
These things have passed. I understand wanting to capitalize on on fandoms, because you are greedy terrible people, but leave them alone.
Their time has passed. We have moved on. Look at Harry Potter.
But Harry Potter is going strong, you say. New products all the time! Even a new movie!
Yeah-have you watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? Because I watched it on the plane recently and it was terrible. It felt like awkwardly written fanfiction with a terribly thought out OC.
Is that what we want for all our fandoms? Half-assed media just to have something?
We need to leave things alone. Stop killing the fandoms for franchises.
Sorry for the ranting, but I’m more than a little miffed. I feel like the industry is taking nine steps backward with this when they could be making cross/trans media for literally any other YA book out there.
Seriously, movie makers, go to the bookstore and pick one off the shelf. It’s not that hard.
