J.K. Rowling Will Write a Movie Screenplay for First Time!

J.K. Rowling is set to write a screenplay for the first time ever for her upcoming project Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them!

The new franchise, a spinoff of the massive hit Harry Potter series, will be at least a trilogy with films releasing in 2016, 2018, 2020, and possibly beyond.

Jo has a vision for this extension of the franchise, and for the first time, she is writing the script for what she believes is at least a trilogy,” Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara said at Time Warner’s investors conference (via the Los Angeles Times).

Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them is about a character named Newt Scamander, who was a Hufflepuff hero that studied magical creatures and wrote a fictional textbook that bears the franchise’s name.

J.K. Rowling Reveals Answer to Her 'Harry Potter' Riddle!

J.K. Rowling has revealed the answer to the Harry Potter themed riddle she posed on her Twitter account this week – and unfortunately we don’t have more books in the series coming our way.

Many fans thought the anagram she posted would lead to new details on the Harry Potter series. Some even scrambled the letters into this: “Harry returns! Wont say any details now! A week off! No comment.”

Well here is the correct solution: “Newt Scamander only meant to stay in New York for a few hours…” It refers to the main character in the spinoff series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which will be getting a movie trilogy soon.

'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.

J.K. Rowling Reveals a Cool New Tidbit About a 'Harry Potter' Character - Watch Now!

JK Rowling has revealed a cool new tidbit about Celestina Warbeck – a character referenced only a few times in her “Harry Potter” book series.

The character is a singer who is now featured with her own show at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios.

“Although we never lay eyes on Celestina during the whole seven volumes of the Potter books, I always imagined her to resemble Shirley Bassey in both looks and style,” JK wrote on Pottermore. When talking about the singer’s popularity within the books, she added that “Three devoted fans were involved in a nasty three-broom pile up over Liverpool while trying to reach the last night of her Flighty Aphrodite tour, and her tickets often appear on the black market at vastly inflated prices (one reason why Molly Weasley has never yet seen her favourite singer live).”

Watch a video of Celestina coming to life below!
