Rowling to Write Wizard Screenplay

J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling

The Harry Potter books and movies are loved by fans around the world. We were all a little bit sad to leave the wizarding world behind when the series wrapped up.

Imagine how excited I was to read this today:

All ended well for Harry Potter in J.K. Rowling’s books, but it turns out the author isn’t finished with her magical world. Rowling and Warner Bros. have announced that she will adapt her Hogwarts textbook, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, into an cinematic adventure about that book’s fictitious author, Newt Scamander. Rowling’s first-ever screenplay is expected to be the first of a series of new films about the wizarding world that fans know well from the Potter books and movies.

(from Entertainment Weekly)

Yes! Even though the new movie series will not be a direct sequel to the Harry Potter story, it will take place in a familiar magical world. I’m excited to see how it develops!
