Casting and director has yet to be decided, but we wonder if David Yates who produced the last two films (Half Blood Prince and Deathly hallows) will be back to give a helping hand?
However we do know David Heyman – who produced on all eight Harry Potter movies – will return once again to produce the film.
Published in 2001 the 51 page book, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, was featured throughout the Harry Potter series as one of Hogwarts textbooks – like Hermione, we hope Ron has finally got a new one for his family!
The popular film will be set in New York about 70 years before the “boy who lived” but will not act as a prequel or sequel however it is expected to form part of a trilogy.
We have jotted down the date and will be queing up at the UK box office for tickets!
