For those of you wondering what exactly ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’ is, think back to the magical world of Harry Potter. In the very first book, Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone – Sorcerers Stone if you’re American! – one of the books on the reading list is “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them” by magizoologist Newt Scamander. Not long ago, Rowling turned the book into relality and now it’s being turned into a film!
Warner Bros, with J.K Rowling are adapting the Newt Scamander book, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them’ for the big screen. Rowling said “Fantastic Beasts 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.”
At the moment there’s no indication of when the film will be released, let alone casting so let the speculation commence! Does this sound good to you or are you all magicked out?
