Warner Bros will make J.K. Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts” a new trilogy
J.K. Rowling still has a few tales to tell, and the new Harry Potter spinoff series, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” is shaping up to be three more years of magic for the world to enjoy.
Although it is unlikely that Hermoine, Ron and Harry Potter will be in the new films, there will be three of them at least. That is the word from Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, who spoke with the New York Times in a featured article outlining the company and Tsujihara himself.
Potter fans around the world expressed their anticipation online when they heard the news that Rowling would be creating a new film, though this one pre-dates all of the original tales.
Warner Bros. has confirmed that the company wants the new set of stories to be a trilogy, but casting and scheduling won’t be ready for sometime now.
In the original storyline that featured Harry Potter “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” was a popular textbook used by the students at Hogwarts, the new film will focus on the fictional author (Newt Scamander) of that book and how he made it. The original story was written by Rowling herself, it was released as a short 54-page installment in 2001 before Harry Potter V hit the shelves.
