JK Rowling plans five Fantastic Beasts films – BBC News

Harry Potter author JK Rowling has said she has planned scripts for a total of five Fantastic Beasts films.

The first movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – which marks Rowling’s debut as a screenwriter – is released on 17 November.

A sequel had already been confirmed by Warner Bros, but Rowling made her new announcement at a promotional event in London’s Leicester Square.

She said that she was “pretty sure” the story would unfold over five films.

The Fantastic Beasts film is set in New York, and tells the story of a fictional author mentioned in the Harry Potter stories.

Eddie Redmayne plays the part of the animal-loving Newt Scamander, who lives among New York’s secret community of witches and wizards. The film is set 70 years before Harry Potter reads his book in the Hogwarts school.
