Rejoice muggles and Potter heads! Because the first instalment of the Harry Potter
spin-off, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them
, has been given a release date. It is set to hit theatres on November 18, 2016, so remember to mark your calendars.
The new movie is going to be written by J.K. Rowling, and will be set in New York City. We didn’t really get to see much of the wizarding world outside of Britain in the books and movies, so this will be a unique take on the Harry Potter universe. The film will follow the adventures of Newt Scamander, the author of one of Harry Potter’s textbooks, and it is set 70 years before the events in the Harry Potter
series. The book and the author has often been referred to in the series of novels, and J.K. Rowling published a reproduction of the fictional textbook in 2001. In the film version of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
, Scamander’s name appeared in the Marauder’s map.
