Fantastic Beasts: Harry Potter Spin-Off to Be Turned Into Three “Megamovies”
The story of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and more may've ended with The Deathly Hallows, but the magical world in which they all lived will continue to be the setting for multiple stories to come.
According to The New York Times, "Three megamovies are planned" for HP prequel spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, based on the life of "magizoologist" Newt Scamander about seven decades prior to the existence of The Boy Who Lived. AHH!
J.K. Rowling says we have Warner Bros. new CEO, Kevin Tsujihara, to thank for the upcoming project, "When I say he made Fantastic Beasts happen, it isn't PR-speak but the literal truth. We had one dinner, a follow-up telephone call, and then I got out the rough draft that I'd thought was going to be an interesting bit of memorabilia for my kids and started rewriting!"
Recently, Emma Watson exclaimed that she "would definitely be up for a cameo" in the Fantastic Beasts film, so the news just keeps getting better and better. Stay tuned as we're sure more details will emerge soon!
