I have a lot of feelings about Harry Potter – it is the single most important literary work in shaping my life – so you can imagine what it feels like to read the words, “J.K. Rowling invites you to return to the Wizarding World.” *cries*
The first trailer for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, a spin-off of the original Harry Potter series, is now out! For those who don’t know, Fantastic Beasts is set in the American Wizarding World, and tells the story of Newt Scamander. Newt has been mentioned in the Harry Potter series as the writer of one of Harry’s textbooks, which is also titled Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.
This is JKR’s debut as a screenwriter, and I have to say, I’m a lot more confident about this extension to the Wizarding World because this is in her hands. The film stars Eddie Redmayne and Katherine Waterston, and is out in November 2016.
