J.K. Rowling Is Writing A Brand New Harry Potter Spin-Off Movie!!!

OMG! Our heads are going to explode!

Harry Potter is coming back to theaters!

Well, sort of! Harry himself may be retired, but his world isn't! J.K. Rowling is writing a brand new movie set in the HP universe of wizards, muggles, and very specifically, magical creatures!

The author is expanding the universe for the first time with her screenwriting debut, telling the story behind one of Harry's Hogwarts textbooks, Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them!

How did this come about? We'll just let the the creator tell you herself! She says:

"It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' into a film. I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author of 'Fantastic Beasts', realized by another writer was difficult. Having lived for so long in my fictional universe, I feel very protective of it and I already knew a lot about Newt. As hard-core Harry Potter fans will know, I liked him so much that I even married his grandson, Rolf, to one of my favourite characters from the Harry Potter series, Luna Lovegood.

As I considered Warners’ proposal, an idea took shape that I couldn’t dislodge. That is how I ended up pitching my own idea for a film to Warner Bros.

Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world. The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway.

I particularly want to thank Kevin Tsujihara of Warner Bros. for his support in this project, which would not have happened without him. I always said that I would only revisit the wizarding world if I had an idea that I was really excited about and this is it."

Yes! So amazing! We can't wait to see the magical world again! We just hope we can get a Dumbledore cameo. He was pretty darn old after all!

    Re: overthere – No she isn't. That was an April Fools joke that recently resurfaced :) When the joke first came out, Daniel Radcliffe immediately asked JK Rowling if it was true and kinda begged her not to, she responded by saying she would never write another Harry Potter book and that that was just a lie. As much as I adore Harry Potter, I'm glad she is laying it to rest at a legend :)

    I'm so excited. And as much as I would love an HP encyclopedia or anything involving existing characters, I'm actually excited for a very separate story. We get JKR's writing and magical world, but all new people and places and things and animals and I can't wait.

    No thanks, glad to hear it is a hoax. I only watched the first one because my manager took us all as part of a "team building exercise". It was OK.

    Re: Ather – Idiot, this wasn't even on April Fools and if you actually read the article, it says that it is NOT by any means a Harry Potter book.
