JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Part 1 gets a release date…

May 14th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Despite the Harry Potter movies having a satisfying end with The Deathly Hallows Part II, Warners and author JK Rowling are pushing ahead with a spin-off movie (first reported here) trilogy.

And now, despite having no director or cast to announce, the trilogy Fantastic Beasts And Where To find Them will see its first installment hit cinemas on November 18th, 2016.

The movies will be based on a script written by Rowling, based on her book of the same name and will follow Newt Scamander as he travels the magical world in search of said magical beasts.

We expect casting and director announcements soon, so stay tuned to FTN…

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….
