Rowling will be creating more movies based in Harry Potter's world with Warner Brothers? I think not! And, if all goes according to plan, it will be a series of movies. Woo Hoo! I'm excited already.

J.K. Rowling's First Screenplay

Gives her the opportunity to further develop Harry's world.

J.K. Rowling has always said she would like to further develop parts of the Harry Potter world and with the release of this news from Warner Brothers, it looks like she will be doing so when she writes the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them!

What Will Be The Story in Fantastic Beasts?

Not much is known at this point, since Rowling hasn't started work on the screenplays yet.

The stories will be derived from the Hogwarts textbook, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" and feature the fictional author of that book, Newt Scamander. It will start in New York some seventy years before the birth of Harry Potter who will not be in the new movies.

Neither the production nor the release dates for the first movie have been set yet since J.K. Rowling will have to write the screenplay first.

Final Thoughts

Movie fans are often displeased when Hollywood tinkers with their favorite franchises. The Wizard of Oz is one such franchise that comes to mine. Loyal fans like myself who grew up with the Judy Garland version of The Wizard of Oz hate to see new versions of the old movie, particularly when they are done poorly. However, in this case, we read and then watched our way through the entire Harry Potter franchise and, when it was over, we were crushed. Some of us were even sad before we read the last book because we knew it was the last book...

So what do you think? Are you excited about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them or are you disgusted or worried or perhaps you don't even care...

      I just hope it takes a completely different angle than HP. I love HP and don't want to see it replicated, though I'm sure her creative mind can come up with something to entertain us (and our kids lol)!

      How fun. I loved this little book - its release between the Harry Potter series books was perfect and kept me wanting more.

      I think anything that J.K. Rowling is involved with will be terrific. She is a fabulous writer and maintains strict standards over anything that involves her characters. It would be tough to top the Harry Potter series, so I think the key to enjoying "Fantastic Beasts" will be to try to avoid comparing it to the Harry Potter series and enjoy it on its own merits.
