Harry Potter spin-off to hit theatres in 2016

Wednesday, 14 May 2014

Los Angeles, May 14 (PTI) The first film installment in the Harry Potter spin-off trilogy 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' will be released on November 18, 2016.

Warner Bros has not yet set a producer, director or actors on 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them', which was first announced in September reported Variety.

Kevin Tsujihara of Warner Bros revealed in March that the studio was following in the footsteps of 'The Hobbit' franchise with three megamovies for 'Fantastic Beasts'.

Tsujihara persuaded author JK Rowling last year to spin off the Harry Potter franchise by adapting her Hogwarts textbook 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' for the big screen. Rowling wrote the 54-page book in 2001 between publication of the fourth and fifth Potter books.

Set initially in New York about seven decades before the start of the Harry Potter story, the films will follow magizoologist Newt Scamander as an extension of the wizarding world — rather than being prequels or sequels. The eight Harry Potter films grossed USD 7.7 billion worldwide between 2001 and 2011. Four of the eight opened in mid-November.
