'Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them' Franchise Will Have Five Films!

We are loving this new poster for the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!

Author J.K. Rowling also just revealed that the story will play out in five films during a special Facebook Live Q&A on Thursday (October 13) in London, England.

“.@jk_rowling has just confirmed the magic continues in a total of FIVE MOVIES! We can’t wait! #FantasticBeasts,” the official movie account tweeted.

Stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, and Dan Fogler were also in attendance, as were Colin Farrell and Jon Voight via satellite from Los Angeles.

Fantastic Beasts opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander (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, 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.

Don’t forget – the film hits theaters on November 18. Watch the stream below:
