J.K. Rowling Will Write the 'Fantastic Beasts' Screenplay!

Here is some very exciting news – J.K. Rowling will write for the screen for the first time for her upcoming film franchise 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 Posts Solution to Her Riddle!

J.K. Rowling has been driving us crazy trying to figure out the answer to her Harry Potter themed anagram and now she has revealed the solution!

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.

Woohoo! David Yates is coming back for more Harry Potter!

The director, 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, THR reports.

Here's a Cool New 'Harry Potter' Tidbit from JK Rowling!

Here's a Cool New 'Harry Potter' Tidbit from JK Rowling!

Have you ever wondered what the “Harry Potter” character Celestina Warbeck looked like or who inspired her? Well now author JK Rowling has revealed more info!

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!
