J.K. Rowling has confirmed the exact time period in which the other four ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movies will be set.

With the author already confirming a further four films involving Newt Scamander and co., fans have been wondering when they will take place in the wizarding timeline.

Step forward Ms. Rowling: “Our story starts in 1926 and ends in 1945. It’s just too big to fit into one movie!” This tweet was in response to someone asking why the series would hold an additional four movies.

What all this means is that we’ll get to see how Newt, Tina, Queenie, and Jacob spend a good portion of their lives. We all already know that Tina and Newt end up getting married, but how will that develop in the next four movies, and how will the forthcoming war play out into these stories?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
