J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spin-off ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ will be turned into a movie trilogy.
The book which was published in 2001, billed as one of Potter’s Hogwarts textbooks, will be adapted by Warner Bros. and set years before the arrival of the famous boy wizard – who was portrayed on screen by Daniel Radcliffe.
The New York Times newspaper, who were speaking to CEO of Warner Bros. Entertainment Kevin Tsujihara, report, ”Three mega movies are planned. The main character will be a ‘magizoologist’ named Newt Scamander. The stories, neither prequels nor sequels, will start in New York about seven decades before the arrival of Mr. Potter and his pals.”
Hmm, more cha-ching for J.K. Rowling, I see. 🙂
