Warner Bros. spinning ‘Harry Potter’ off-shoot ‘Fantastic Beasts’ into trilogy

J.K. Rowling

Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara has plans for three new Harry Potter spin-offs based on J.K. Rowling’s ‘Hogwarts textbook’ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

In a lengthy profile by the New York Times, the previously announced Fantastic Beasts adaptation is revealed to be in the works as a brand new trilogy.

Rowling penned the spin-off, set seven decades before the events of the main Harry Potter saga, in 2001.

The protagonist of the new film trilogy will be “magizoologist” Newt Scamander.

Rowling is working on the script for at least one of thoseĀ feature films.
