Kendra Harris – Hey John, love the show. Ever since Harry Potter, Twilight, and Hunger Games ended, movies based off of a YA Fantasy or Sci-fi series have failed to launch a franchise. Harry Potter made 7B, Twilight did 3.3B, and Hunger Games made 2.9B. The only two franchises that followed up decently were Maze Runner at 949M and Divergent at 765M. Nowadays, with comic book movies at the top, it’s been getting harder and harder to launch the next big YA franchise. Could it possibly be due to wrong timing and/or the trend being dead?
