Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Will Be a Sequel

Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Will Be a Sequel
J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" spin-off films, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them", will be a trilogy according to the New York Times.

The series was announced in Spetemmber, and Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara said that he hoped to "build a film franchise" from the project.  The films will be based on Rowlings book by the same, which was a textbook published between the fourth and fifth Harry Potter films.

Rowlings said of Tsujihara, "When I say he made ‘Fantastic Beasts' happen, it isn't P.R.-speak but the literal truth. 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!"

The franchise will feature magizoologist Newt Scamander, and will initially take place in New York about 70 years before the start of the Harry Potter story.
