Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Set to be 3-Part Mega Series

In 2013, Rowling announced several projects upcoming for Harry Potter fans. One major revelation was that our beloved author was going to pen the screenplay for an adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, in collaboration with Warner Bros. which helmed the eight-part Harry Potterfilm series. Set seventy years before Harry Potters famous tale, the film was going to follow Newt Scalamander and his adventures of finding the wild creatures we have only read about in the wizarding world. Recently announced by Variety, the film adaptation will be a trilogy - or as they put it three mega movies!

WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara persuaded Rowling to revive the Harry Potter movie magic by adapting her Hogwarts textbook “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” for the big screen. Rowling wrote the 54-page book in 2001 between publication of the fourth and fifth Potter books.

“When I say he made ‘Fantastic Beasts’ happen, it isn’t P.R.-speak but the literal truth,” she said about Tsujihara. “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!”
