J.K. Rowling Confirms 'Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them' Will Be a Trilogy!
Awesome news – Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them will, in fact, entail three movies!
She wrote to a fan, “You heard wrong, I’m afraid. #CursedChild is a play. #FantasticBeasts will be 3 movies, though!”
The film opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob (Dan Fogler), a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
