Everyone remain calm!!!! Warner Bros just announced that JK Rowling is working on three new wizard-based movies to be released starting in 2016. The first, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, will be directed by David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter movies, and reunite the same filmmaking team. A second movie is set for release in 2018 and a third in 2020, the studio said. The first movie was announced last month. Rowling will be heavily involved in the script writing and direction. "Having lived for so long in my fictional universe, I feel very protective of it," she said, explaining her decision to write the screenplay. This is awesome news for Harry Potter fans everywhere!!
I think it's funny how she always seems to ditch the franchise but the demand keeps pulling her back into it.
@EightyNine totally! Both books are really awesome and they have a kind of different feel I guess than the series but it's still the same if that makes any sense XD read them, they're good
first WB announces 13 movies between now and 2020, and now two more HP movies too?! yus!!! I really want to see how they'll turn Fantastic Beasts into a movie c:
@EightyNine I agree, I hope they are good, HP is so close to my heart...I don't want it to be ruined. @timeturnerjones , so true! I'm going to trust she will do a great job :-)
There will never be enough HP for me, as long as Rowling still has a hand in it. I trust her to make sure it is of the quality it needs to be to really be a part of the wizarding world.
