[Movies] Harry Potter Spin-Off to Comprise a Trilogy
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.30.2014
So says the Warner Bros. CEO...
Kevin Tsujihara spoke with the New York Times in a new interview and said that the new Harry Potter spin-off will be a full trilogy. The previously-announced film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, is based on a spin-off book by J.K. Rowling from her famed young adult fantasy series and the Warner Bros. Pictures CEO said that it wouldn't just be the one.
The article notes, "Wherever he learned the skill, his deft touch became clear to Hollywood's creative community last September. That is when Warner announced that Ms. Rowling had agreed to adapt for the big screen her 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,' a 2001 book billed as one of Harry Potter's Hogwarts textbooks. Three megamovies are planned. The main character will be a 'magizoologist' named Newt Scamander. The stories, neither prequels or sequels, will start in New York about seven decades before the arrival of Mr. Potter and his pals."
