    Its actually got a very cool story. It’s just before a Harry gets there. There’s these cursed vaults at hogwarts and you got to stop it. You’d probably be better watching it on YouTube. I’m determined to beat this fucking thing

    She’s had little involvement with the story for both projects and it shows.

    I think she wrote the script for the movies.

    Did she? I thought she only wrote the skeleton for the characters of the 1st one and helped with world building. The plot was someone else.

    You might be right. I know she has involvement. I didn’t mind the first one. The second one sucked.

    The plot of the play is worse than most fan fiction I’ve read.

    Edit: also a lot of racists were butthurt about Hermione being black.

    I couldn't ever get over the plot for the play. Hate using the time turners. I think people that went and saw it mostly said it was good, but it doesn't really interest me.

    I don't care about continuing Harry's story or any story with his kids. Prequals or stories with completely/mostly new character but set in the same world is what I personally like. It's why I'm such a big fan of Mandalorian but hated the new Star Wars trilogy.

    The first one was all her. They brought someone else to assist her with the 2nd one but it was still primarily her.

    Screenplays aren't her forte

    The plot comes off as written by a 14 year old.

    What people love is the artistry of the play itself. Apparently it breaks all sorts of barriers when it comes to what the "theatre experience" is.

    Can you beat it or is it one of those mobile games where they keep adding content and you’re forever behind unless you spend money?

    Its still not done yet. For instance they have "chapters" for each year. Right now its up to close to the end of Year 6 with about 40 chapters. So Year 7 will clearly have 40 chapters.

    But in the past year, they released Adopting Magical Creatures which takes different types of notebooks, you get those from Weekly Challenges/Contests or of course if you buy them. They are also releasing a Quidditch story which is only in Year 2. But I just grind the game and dont spend any money and I have about almost everything in the game.

    Basically its a game where you spend "energy" to complete classes/tasks which are 1 hour/3 hour/8 hour. You get 1 energy every 4 minutes. There is very minimal skill when it comes to Quidditch/Dueling. But its just a time waster. I literally open the game every couple 2 hours to play about 5 minutes of gameplay.

    If you're not into a grind away game and just want the story, reading the story or watching YouTube videos would do the job. But this is literally probably the only game on my phone I play

    I really liked the first one. The second one had some cool things but was just way too convoluted. They tried to do way too much

    while flawed, the first Fantastic Beasts is very rewatchable. the second is not.
