FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM WILL BE A TRILOGY
During a meeting at Time Warner on Tuesday, Warner Bros.’ Chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara revealed that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them would be released as a three-part series.
Among the slew of Warner Bros.' upcoming titles, the studio will release three pictures in 2016, 2018, and 2020 based on J.K. Rowling's original story and screenwriting debut. The story is set in the 1920s, seven decades before Harry Potter's story, and features famed Magizoologist Newt Scamander and other magical characters inspired by Potter’s Hogwarts textbook.
Fantastic Beasts is an extension of Rowling's wizarding world, with limited ties to the Harry Potter saga. David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter films, will return to helm this project.
Warner Bros. also announced three follow-ups to the wildly successful LEGO Movie, starting with Ninjango in 2016, The LEGO Batman Movie in 2017, and The LEGO Movie 2 in 2018.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will hit theaters November 18, 2016
