Warner Bros and J.K. Rowling Partners to Make New Films Based on the Harry Potter World

Warner Bros. announced a couple of days ago a new creative partnership with J.K. Rowling. At the center of the partnership is a new film series from the Harry Potter universe. The films will be inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” and the adventures of the book’s fictitious author, Newt Scamander. The announcement was made by Kevin Tsujihara, Chief Executive Officer, Warner Bros. Entertainment.

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” will be an original story and will mark Rowling’s screenwriting debut. It is planned as the first picture in a new film series. Set in the wizarding world, the story will feature magical creatures and characters, some of which will be familiar to devoted Harry Potter fans. Rowling has confirmed that idea for the big screen adaptation of the textbook came from Warner Bros. themselves. Unfortunately, not much has been revealed on when production will start or when the first film is slated to be released.
