‘Harry Potter’ Spin-Off ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ to Be a Trilogy

The Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be a trilogy confirms WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara, which he describes as three megamovies.

The trilogy is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter saga, and revolves around a Magizoologist named Scamander. The storyline takes place decades before Harry Potter and his pals arrived at Hogwarts.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a 54-page reproduction of the fictional Magizoology textbook from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry written by Newton Artemis Fido 'Newt' Scamander, and is required reading for first-year students.

Author J.K. Rowling claims the movie wouldn't have happened without Kevin 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!"

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them does not yet have a production start date, and its unclear when the first film will be in theaters.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them comes to theaters November 18th, 2016.
