Back in March, J.K. Rowling agreed to write three films for the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Remember, this movie trilogy would be an extension of the wizarding world taking place 70 years before Harry’s story begins.
Well, the wait is over (kind of). Warner Bros. and J.K. Rowling’s first installment of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been set to hit theaters November 18, 2016.
Even though this set of films would not be the same and only resemble the wizarding world we all grew to know and love, they have certainly kept a similar timeline as 4 out of 8 other Potter films were released in mid-November.
A cast, crew, producer, or director has not been decided since the film has been confirmed back in September of last year. We are all still hoping Emma Watson’s wish to be in the films comes true.
The Fantastic Beasts Magizoology collection has been published since 2001 raising money for Comic Relief. A 54-page book that was written between the fourth and fifth installment of the Harry Potter series.
Okay you can get comfortable again. At least now there is a date to wait for.
