Warner Bros. recently announced J.K. Rowling is writing a new movie based in the world of Harry Potter. It’s called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and will be set several decades before Potter’s story begins. One would assume, then, actor Daniel Radcliffe would not be appearing in the films. That doesn’t stop people from asking him about it, though, and Radcliffe revealed he’s thought about how his character could return. Read More »

This month’s news Warner Bros. would be making more Harry Potter movies was both surprising and expected. The expectation came from the fact the Potter franchise has grossed billions for the company and anyway to continue that would make sense. The surprise came from exactly how it was going to happen. J.K Rowling herself would be adapting a smaller, spin-off book she wrote in 2001 called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Originally conceived as a textbook Harry Potter owned at Hogwarts, Rowling’s new film will be set in the magical world, decades before Potter is born.
In recent weeks, Warner Bros. has trademarked “Fantastic Beasts” for every imaginable thing under the sun which, again, is expected. But the surprise is they’ve done the same for two other Potter spin-off books, suggesting they’re possibly looking at film adaptations down the road. Read More »

The eight films have collectively grossed $7.7 billion at the worldwide box office, and that’s not even counting the money coming in from the various tie-ins, events, theme park lands, and so on.
It was only a matter of time, then, before Warner Bros. figured out a way to dive back into Harry’s world of wizardry. The studio announced today that it is developing a spinoff feature inspired by the Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and the adventures of its author, Newt Scamander. J.K. Rowling will write the screenplay. ”It is planned as the first picture in a new film series,” says a press release.
