We come up with the twenty awesome Harry Potter spin offs, starring characters from the Wizarding World.

The spin off has become a staple in our entertainment world over the past twenty five years or so. And who doesn’t love a good spin off? For the production company, it is a known quantity, with a preplanned marketing scheme and a built in audience of fans from the original series. For the actors, this is steady work playing a character they’ve known for years. And for the audience, it’s a chance to return to a world they enjoyed thoroughly the first time, but exploring it from a different angle, and getting to know the stories of those who were hitherto fore minor characters.

Then there’s the opportunity for format change. A franchise that started out as a series of movies can be rebooted and reborn in other venues. There’s everything from comic books to novels for all popular franchises. But with the renewed interest and calls for a Harry Potter TV show, coupled with the response to the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trilogy suggests that the Potterverse could support a ton of different variations of spin-offs before all is said and done.

Speaking of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, we cannot imagine that producers aren’t looking at this intense fandom that still exists for all things Potter related, and trying to figure out what other pitches for shows might be made off of characters from the Potterverse. To that end, we’ve sat down and listed out potential projects involving some of the most popular secondary characters from the Harry Potter series, plus a few major ones, and laid out pitches for Warner Brothers and J.K. Rowling to consider.

Without further ado, check out our ideas for twenty spin-offs starring Harry Potter characters that we believe should happen as soon as possible.
