‘Harry Potter’ Spinoffs — J.K. Rowling Story To Be Released As A Trilogy
Warner Brothers announced their plans to make the famous author’s story into a trilogy on Oct. 15, with the first of the three movies to make its debut in 2016.
The company says that the story is, “Set in an extension of her familiar wizarding world, featuring magical creatures and characters inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook and its fictitious author, Newt Scamander, “Fantastic Beasts” will be directed by David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter movies, and reunite the filmmaking team of David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.”
It sounds absolutely amazing and we can’t wait to see all three movies!
E News reports that J.K revealed that the story is in no way a prequel or a sequel to the beloved Harry Potter stories. “The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films,” she explained, “but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway.”
J.K Rowling Working On New Book
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, on Oct. 5, the extremely busy author tweeted a riddle to her followers that said, “Very busy at the moment working on a novel, tweaking a screenplay and being involved in @lumos campaigns. Back when I’ve finished something!”
Then on Oct. 7, the extremely busy author tweeted that she is working on another book!
OK, the next riddle is… kidding. As I said (was it only 2 days ago?) I’ve got a novel to finish and a screenplay to tweak.
