The Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore ending leaves some story threads dangling, but it ties up enough loose ends to be considered a not-unsatisfying franchise finale. Unfortunately, despite some strong performances throughout, a major problem facing the spinoff franchise is that it just felt better suited to being a one-off adventure, with the story not feeling epic enough to justify three movies, let alone five. With a Harry Potter reboot TV show on the way, it doesn’t sound like audiences should expect any more Fantastic Beasts adventures.
