Fantastic Beasts: Ministry Makes an Attempt to Calm the Public
Despite several arguments and pleas, the Ministry confirmed today, once again, that the film series Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them will continue production. However, a representative (who wished to remain anonymous) of the Ministry admitted that they were severely unprepared and did not take enough precaution with regards to wizard secrecy.
Every person currently involved in the films (including all cast and crew) will be undergoing an interview with a member of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement for added security, and any others brought on to the project must be approved by the same branch of the Ministry. The screenplay is also being reviewed, and added measures will be put in place for the protection and care of the magical creatures as well.
Scribble and I have gotten many letters applauding the Ministry’s efforts, but others still aren’t on board with the movies.
These guidelines should have been put into place in the beginning. Too many things were left to chance. What if the Ministry missed something else?” said one reader.
Another from Margie Ginsley read,
Ridiculous. The Ministry should have put more thought into this project before allowing it to go through.
I’m hoping the changes in security will eventually shift the majority of the public’s attitude in favor of the movies. From the tour I’ve taken of the set and the producers I’ve talked to, they are sure to be a hit.
