Get ready to fall in love all over again, Potterheads, because Harry Potter author JK Rowling herself confirmed that there will be five movies about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them! (via Vulture.com)
At the fan event for the very first Fantastic Beasts movie, JK surprised audiences worldwide with the announcement of two more movies than the originally revealed trilogy. "We always knew that it was going to be more than one movie," she explains. "We knew that from the start. The trilogy was sort of like a placeholder because we knew that there'd be more than one movie. Now I've done the plotting properly, so we're pretty sure it's going to be five movies."
Plus, there's exciting new footage from the film, too. The best parts? JK is the screenwriter for all the movies and it seems like the next ones are set in different big cities in the world, as revealed during the fan event. ZOMG!
Director David Yates also revealed that we'll be hearing more about the infamous Gellert Grindelwald as we go about the story. Ohhh, intriguing.
Sounds so exciting, right? Fantastic Beasts is set to hit cinemas worldwide in November. It stars Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, and Dan Fogler.
