There is a sequel in the works for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, J.K. Rowling‘s newest Harry Potter movie!
J.K. will pen the new film and David Yates will return to direct the second film. The movie will hit theaters on November 16, 2018.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be released in theaters on November 18, 2016. Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander. The film follows Newt in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling just confirmed that she’s officially done with his story after The Cursed Child.
“[Harry] goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we’re done,” J.K. told Reuters. “This is the next generation, you know. So, I’m thrilled to see it realized so beautifully but, no, Harry is done now.”
She continued, “[The play] chimed perfectly with the material I had about the next generation and I could see it would work perfectly. So, I never wanted to write another novel, but this will give the fans something special.”
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child takes place 19 years later, and follows Harry‘s son Albus Severus as he attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The play is now showing on London’s West End and was released in book form on J.K. and Harry‘s birthdays – July 31!
Emma Watson poses for a photo with the actors playing the children of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy after attending a performance of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
The 26-year-old actress wrote a rave review for the stage play on her Facebook account.
“Yesterday I went to see the Cursed Child. I came in with no idea what to expect and it was AMAZING. Some things about the play were, I think, possibly even more beautiful than the films,” Emma wrote.
“Having seen it I felt more connected to Hermione and the stories than I have since Deathly Hallows came out, which was such a gift,” Emma said. ” Meeting Noma [Dumezweni] and seeing her on stage was like meeting my older self and have her tell me everything was going to be alright, which as you can imagine was immensely comforting (and emotional)!”
“The cast and crew welcomed me like I was family and Noma was everything I could ever hope she would be. She’s wonderful. The music is beautiful… I could go on… Here are some pics of me meeting Noma and the crew. Love, E xx ?#?keepthesecrets? ?#?19yearslater?,” she added.
Emma also snapped a photo with Sam Clemmett, who plays Albus Potter, and Anthony Boyle, who plays Draco Malfoy’s son Scorpius.

Actors Alex Price and Anthony Boyle play the characters.
“He’s wearing the official Hogwarts uniform before you go and get sorted into your house. He’s a Malfoy so his clothes should be really expensive but quite constraining to make him feel a bit awkward,” author and playwright J.K. Rowling said about Scorpius.
She also added, “I’ve got a feeling Scorpius is going to do nothing to turn girls off the Malfoy men.”

Ron and Hermoine are all grown up in these new photos, with their daughter Rose, from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!
The new Harry Potter piece is an upcoming stage play, set to take place in London.
The beloved characters are portrayed by Paul Thornley (Ron), Noma Dumezweni (Hermoine), and Cherrelle Skeete (Rose Granger-Weasley).
“Rose is like her mother, but more secure, more grounded. She was born to wizards and knows her place in the world. Cherrelle plays her perfectly: bossy but deeply loveable,” author J.K. Rowling said on the new character.
“Ron in his forties isn’t very different from Ron in his teens, except that his feet hurt a bit more. Paul’s so funny and brilliant in the role,” J.K. added, stating about Noma playing Hermoine: “I saw Noma workshop the part and when John Tiffany told me he’d cast her, I was overjoyed. She gets Hermione inside out.”

British actors Jamie Parker, Sam Clemmett, and Poppy Miller pose together in these new photos to promote the new stage production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
The actors are playing the respective roles of Harry Potter, Albus Potter, and Ginny Weasley in the eighth story for the beloved franchise.
“He simply is Harry now. There’s a kind of relief in watching him, he gets it so right,” author and playwright J.K. Rowling said about the older version of the wizard.
“There’s much I could say about Sam-as-Albus, but we’d be into spoiler territory so quickly I’ll just say we couldn’t have cast better,” Rowling said about the actor playing Harry’s son.
“I think a lot of people would like to have Poppy‘s Ginny for a mother. Kind and cool, exactly as I imagined her,” she added about the older version of the Weasley sister.
