Dying for more Harry Potter? Well then, do I have good news for you! Warner Bros. has announced that they will be continuing to work with J.K. Rowling, most notably to create a film based around Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and the fictional author of said book, Newt Scamander.
“Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,” said Rowling. “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, but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway.”

Diehard Harry Potter fans will recall that Luna Lovegood eventually marries Newt Scamander’s grandson and has twins.
Are you excited for more from the Wizarding World? I know I am!
