When a franchise is so loved, and multiple sequels are not enough to express the love for the characters, there come the spin-offs. Indeed the franchise always expects a spin-off, if there is a character who is hard to say goodbye to. 

Out of cinema history, numerous spin-offs have come out with many of them hitting harder than the original franchise. The rise of Deadpool from X-Men, and its successful establishment is one among many examples of it. Besides having its own sequel, the movie was nominated for various awards as well. 

There is also the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts, for which the Potterheads have waited for long. The latest from the franchise, The Secret of Dumbledore is gearing up for release, along with the Harry Potter reunion, which adds a magical touch to the New Year celebrations.
