Fantastic Beasts To Release 5 Films?

Posted on October 16, 2016 at 6:25 pm

Harry Potter author, JK Rowling, told fans attending a global event for Warner Bros’ Fantastic Beats And Where To Find Them that the upcoming movie starring Eddie Redmayne will be the first of five total movies in the series spinoff of her Harry Potter stories. This is new news as the author originally considered the spinoff idea to be a trilogy of films.

In addition, director David Yates, who beamed into the TCL Chinese Theatre from London via satellite with Rowling and Harry Potter film series producer David Heyman, also teased that the second movie in the follow-up series will be set in another global capital city — though he wouldn’t say which one. Another tease: he said the first Fantastic Beasts will feature a cameo by a young Albus Dumbledore as well as another character from the original Harry Potter movies, Gellert Grindelwald. A dangerous wizard whose friendship and later enmity with Dumbledore plays a large role in the parent series’ backstory, Grindelwald was also tied to the final Harry Potter book’s magical Macguffins the Deathly Hallows and to the eventual fate of Lord Voldemort.
