Warner Bros Studios have made a special announcement that there will be a new series of movies set in the Harry Potter Universe. These movies will not feature Harry Potter and his associates, but will be set in the same magical world of Wizards, Witches and Magic.
The first movie will be “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” JK Rowling has confirmed that she will be writing the screenplay, her first attempt at screenwriting. Fans of Harry Potter will know this title from the Hogwarts textbook that Hagrid teaches the students in the Care of Magical Creatures class.
Despite being published as part of the extended Harry Potter universe in 2001, JK Rowling has said that the published book will only serve as the inspiration to a completely original and fresh story, which will begin in the city of New York 70 years before the start of Harry’s story.
