The Harry Potter series is one of the best known stories in the world. The first book was released in 1998 and the last movie was released in 2011. The fandom has been crazing for another installment in the series.
Unfortunately, there won’t be any more added to Harry’s story anytime soon, but J.K. Rowling, author and creator of the loved wizarding world, hasn’t left the fans with nothing.
Recently, news of a new series based in the wizarding world will be coming to the big screen within the next year. This new story follows Newt Scamander the author of a textbook Harry Potter and his friends use in the Care of Magical Creatures class.
The textbook is called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and that’s what most people are speculating to be the title of the film series.
Newt Scamander is a well know Magizoologist in the wizarding world for his work in discovering and understanding the way many magical creatures live in the world.
The film series is going to follow through some of his adventures that he wrote about his book and will begin his story in America during the 1920s.
With this addition to the universe of Harry Potter, fans will be getting their first look into the world of American wizards. Never before have there been any interaction of American wizards so far in the works of Rowling.
Along with a completely new setting, there’s a completely new time, the 1920s, the first movie will show wizards in a setting that’s less innovated. The fans can see how much difference there is between the generations.
With so much new information about the wizarding world, fans must become worried about how much would be canon in the mind of Rowling; but no need to worry. Rowling has been announced as the screenwriter for the film series.
News on what’s going to happen in the film has been kept under wraps but recently there’s rumors Eddie Redmayne could be playing the part of the lead Newt.
With Redmayne’s debut into the fandom world with his role as Marius in Les Misérables, fans could be happy with the choice if it turns out to be true but as of now there’s no confirmation on who will be playing Scamander or any of the other unknown characters.
Fantastic Beast’s IMDB pages states that the movie will be released Nov. 2016 and directed by David Yates, director of the last four Harry Potter films.
With little time before the movie is released and little to no information about who’s playing what characters or synapses of the film, fans must be freaking out about what’s going on and can’t wait for any tiny news that is released.
