J.K. Rowling and Warner Brothers made a HUGE announcement this week: A brand new Harry Potter movie franchise! The first movie in the franchise will be based on the Hogwarts textbook "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them". The book was "written" and will take place in 1918 (70 years before Harry Potter's birth) and will feature the "author" of the book, Newt Scamander, who will be the main character of the first movie.
Rowling commented, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world"
No details on when it will be released but we will keep you up to date.
