The Harry Potter universe just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
J.K. Rowling announced at a Warner Bros. fan event in London, England, yesterday (Oct 13) that Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is going to be a not one, not 2, but a FIVE film franchise!
“We always knew that it was going to be more than one movie — we knew that from the start — so we set a trilogy as a sort of placeholder, because we knew there would be more than one movie,” Rowling said at the Empire Theatre. “But I’ve now done the plotting properly, so we’re pretty sure it’s going to be five movies.”
You know what this means right? If there’s a Fantastic Beasts movie every other year, by the time all five have been released Daniel Radcliffe will be old enough/ready to reprise the role of Harry Potter for the film adaptation of J.K. Rowling‘s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!
The first of the five Fantastic Beasts movies hits theatres November 18th! Prepare yourself by watching the new featurette that debuted the IMAX Fan Event:
Now, please excuse me while I go celebrate this bloody-brilliant news!
