We have some magical news for you guys :)
According to director David Yates, British author J.K. Rowling has already finished writing the script for the 2nd movie. “We’ve done the first one, she’s written the 2nd one, and she’s got ideas for the 3rd one,” he told GSNews during the premiere of “The Legend of Tarzan”.
Yates, who has directed several “Harry Potter” films in the past, described the upcoming fantasy adventure film as “pure Jo (Rowling)”.
“It’s sort of lovely in a way. When we adapted the books, you would always have to leave out things that you hate leaving out because they didn’t quite work within the structure of the storytelling for the movie, or the movie would just be far too long. With this, it’s just pure Jo (Rowling) from the first page to the last page,” he said.
The “Harry Potter” spin-off movie is based on J.K. Rowling’s novel series of the same name and it is set in New York City during the 1920s, which is about 70 years before the events of “Harry Potter”. The story follows the adventures of a distinguished Magiczoologist known as Newt Scamander (played by Eddie Redmayme) and it features the wizarding community in the US.
Meanwhile, Pottermore recently unveiled the name of the North American magic school to be Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Slated for worldwide release on 18th November 2016, the film also stars Dan Fogler as Jacob the “No-Maj” (American for Muggle), Katherine Waterston as Porpentina Goldstein, Alison Loren Sudol aka A Fine Frenzy as Queenie Goldstein, and Ezra Miller as Credence.
