Harry Potter fans can't stop talking about the brand new movie that will transport us all back to the world of witchcraft and wizardry!
But Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them takes place over 70 years before the events of J.K. Rowling's original series.
So could we see ANY of the characters return??
Well, here are a few of the possibilities!
Ch-ch-check 'em ouuut …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Ashley Greene and Jamie Campbell-Bower were spotted roaming the mean streets of Manhattan earlier this week!
We've already seen the Twilight starlet chillaxing at Fashion Week and posing topless for a film, but we didn't realize she brought a co-star with her to the Big Apple!!
Breakfast, eh?! We wonder…
Old friends catching up over over a cup of joe at Denny's? Or did they maybe climb out of the same bed this morning?
Hmm, a super-steamy evening of sexy time would leave the two of them ravenous in the A.M. and eager to replenish their fluids!
The sequel to Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was all set to begin shooting next week! We were even just talking to the cast about getting back to work on City of Ashes!
But production has now been shut down INDEFINITELY following MI's poor performance at the box office last month!
City of Ashes had already signed on Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower to return for the second installment, while Sigourney Weaver was also expected to join the cast!
After only a $58 million take at the box-office for City of Bones though, producers are now wondering if they have a hit on their hands or if they should bail out off this YA franchise altogether!
The executive producer of the flick, Martin Moszkowicz, is now saying that the decision to halt production was not an easy one, but that they are still very much committed to making the second movie. Martin explained:
They may be broken up but Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell-Bower didn't mind putting their arms around each other during The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones photocall in Madrid on Thursday!
We wouldn't be surprised if there were still some feelings between these two!
Lily dressed up in a floral print Dolce & Gabbana high-neck dress with lace accents and a seksi lace back for the occasion, ditching her beloved crop tops.
The dress was pretty with a hint of mystery, and very much fit the darker theme of the movie. Her slightly crimped hair, EF Collection jewelry, and Brian Atwood pumps were a good match as well!
We're pretty sure we'll see more cropping in her future, but we'd also like to suggest that the actress wear something red soon. It's the perfect color on her!
Think about it, Lily!

Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower called it a wrap earlier this month on their relationship, but at the Berlin premiere of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones this week, they looked like they might be rethinking the rupture.
After all, Mortals do make mistakes!
The pair looked SUPES happy and handsy for two people who just broke up with each other.
Perhaps life will imitate art again, as their characters in the film, which opens this week, fall in love while battling demons. As you do.
Can’t wait to see what happens with these two — on the screen AND off!
Ch-ch-check out more of Jace and Clary (below)!

We don’t think you’re ready for this
Lily Collins is all about her midriff these days, and when you’ve got abs like hers and an ex-boyfriend to make jealous — why not??
For The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones premiere in Berlin on Tuesday, the single lady flashed her taut tummy in a shiny black Paper London crop top an Halston Heritage fishtail skirt.
If the skirt looks familiar, that's because Julianne Hough wore the same one in orange at last week's InStyle Summer Soiree.
Small world! But back to Lily.
Her smokey eyes were a striking complement to her dark and revealing ensem, while a gold chain Pluma Italia necklace and Movado gold cuff timepiece added a touch of weighty elegance.
Judging by the red carpet photos of Lily and her recently relinquished beau, Jamie Campbell-Bower, the poor boy didn’t even TRY to keep his yearning eyes off her. And we’re sure no one else did either!

Goddess gliding through!!!
Lily Collins pulled out all the stops for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones premiere in Toronto, Canada on Thursday.
The actress once again invested in ivory with a lace, long-sleeved Houghton gown featuring a delish open back!
A chain headband interlaced with her updo gave the look a somewhat bridal vibe.
You really gotta feel bad for Jamie Campbell-Bower. He probably had to muster a lot of effort to keep his eyes off her!
The ex-lovebirds actually posed together along with their other co-stars, but Lily conspicuously kept her hands from hovering anywhere near Jamie's bod.
You could cut the tension with a
knife prop dagger from the movie set! LOLz!
