The casting news for the film adaptation of J.K Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to to Find Them” may come very soon as David Heyman, the producer of the “Harry Potter” film series, has revealed to The Telegraph that Rowling has completed the script of the film.

It’s no secret that J.K Rowling is set to conquer the world with her fictional world as Warner Bros confirmed that a Harry Potter spin-off film is currently in the works. It was also confirmed that the film will be shot at the Warner Bros complex in Hertfordshire, where all Harry Potter films were shot.


At the world premiere for his latest film “Paddington“,  David Heyman told The Telegraph that author J.K Rowling has “written a wonderful script” for the film.


The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is a trilogy series and has its story set at New York city in the 1920s. The story follows the adventures of wizard writer Newt Scamander and the magical community in the Big Apple. Though it has no relations to the Harry Potter stories whatsoever, Newt Scamander was once mentioned in Harry Potter as the author of a textbook that wizards must read in school.

No cast members have been announced so far but it will be directed by David Yates, the director for the final 4 “Harry Potter” films. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is expected to start filming next year before it hit theatres on November 18, 2016. A second movie is set for release in 2018 and a third in 2020, the studio said.

It has been reported that the mythical creatures from the book can be found in the Harry Potter theme park Diagon Alley. The Diagon Alley art director suggested that these strange-looking creatures represent the first time that the beasts have ever been visualised.
