Warner Bros has announced a new movie series set in the world of Harry Potter entitled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, based on a textbook used by Harry Potter students. With a screenplay written by JK Rowling, the movie will star Newt Scamander, who wrote the textbook back in 1927. Rowling confirmed in a statement that the movie would take place in 1920s New York and would not be a direct prequel to the Harry Potter world. Still, one can expect that a young Dumbledore will make an appearance in the film.
Rowling previously wrote an actual version of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to raise money for Comic Relief in 2001.
A WB spokesperson also stated that they'd be exploring digital and video game opportunities with the new film, all the while dollar signs flashed before his eyes. Needless to say, this will probably make a crapton of money.
