'Harry Potter' Director David Yates Tapped To Direct 'Fantastic Beasts'

Director David Yates is coming back for more Harry Potter, THR reports.

It was announced earlier today that David, who also directed Order of The Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince, and both Deathly Hallows films, has been tapped to direct the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,

With J.K. Rowling writing the script, the flick is set 70 years prior to the Harry Potter films and centers on Newton Artemis Fido Scamander, who wrote a reference guide to magical beasts, and the movies will follow his adventures after he is commissioned to write the tome.

The flick is set to debut November 18, 2016 — and if you’re at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, we know where to find them.
