Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off movie, will be hitting theaters next month. While a sequel was confirmed a couple months ago, series author J.K. Rowling confirmed via a livestream today that the spin-off will be getting five different movies. You can check out the stream here.
Fantastic Beasts follows the story of the author who wrote one of Harry’s own school textbooks, which focused on the lore and characteristics of the monsters and beasts that inhabited the wizarding world. The movie will take place in America, and will star Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterson, and Colin Farrell.
It’s exciting to see the Harry Potter craze get revived with a new spin-off series of movies, and it should be interesting to see where Rowling takes this story and develops this relatively new character to fit into the existing magical universe.
