Harry Potter fans rejoice! There’s a brand-new Harry Potter movie coming soon. Well … kind of. J.K. Rowling’s 2001 book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is finally getting a big-screen adaptation. It’s not exactly a ‘Harry Potter’ book, but it takes place in the same universe.
It’s written as if it’s Harry’s textbook from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and includes several notes inside it supposedly handwritten by Harry and his best friend Ron Weasley about things they did in the book.
The movie will be about the book’s writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.And, yes, it’ll feature lots of cool wizards and crazy creatures.
