Where the Harry Potter fans at!?
I know I’m present!
We had heard news that one of the books from a spin-off series of Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, would be adapted to the big screen from its book.
Now, we have confirmation that the other two books in this series will also be joining the big premieres. This will also mark J.K. Rowling’s, the author and queen of all of us bookworms, screenwriting debut.
We’ve all secretly wanted the wizarding world to continue to bring us new projects so that we could go to another movie premiere for this phenomenal series and now we have three future premieres to look forward to.
If you’re expecting to see the Golden Trio reunite, you might be a bit misled.
Although this is a Harry Potter spin-off series, it actually takes place seven years before Harry Potter. That’s right, before the lightning bolt shaped scar, there had to have been something else.
So don’t be surprised if you don’t see Harry, Hermione or Ron anywhere in the new films. The actors that make up the Golden Trio: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have commented on this new project and have expressed their excitement even though they won’t be in the movies.
We might see some other characters from the series, the professors of Hogwarts, maybe? I think so.
The spin-off series is based on Newt Scamander, the author of the textbooks used at Hogwarts, studied by all wizards and witches attending the school.
The director of the last four Harry Potter movies, David Yates, is returning to work alongside Rowling to bring the first book of the series to life in 2016 with the next two movies two years apart from each other.
Yes, we’ve already got the release dates: 2016, 2018 and 2020; sounds like a bit of a long wait but anything having to do with wizards and Rowling is worth it.
The Queen herself almost annihilated all of her fans with this tweet she made mentioning a soon to be heard of new book: “OK, the next riddle is…kidding. As I said (was it only 2 days ago?) I’ve got a novel to finish and a screenplay to tweak.”
I don’t know about you but I’m a die-hard fanatic of this woman and I was oozing with excitement when I saw this tweet.
Why must she always do this to us?
I’m assuming the screenplay is for Fantastic Beasts (unless she’s working on some other secret film project to kill us off).
Is there going to be a new Harry Potter related book? We’ll find out eventually, just got to be patient… (Yeah, right.)
How long will we Potterheads be around? Always.
