3 movies in the works for 'Harry Potter' spinoff

J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is set to become an onscreen trilogy.

Kevin Tsujihara broke the news in a profile in the New York Times over the weekend, the newspaper describing the film as 'three megamovies'.

The movie is an adaptation of the 2001 book of Rowling, published between the fourth and fifth book in the Potter series. It was billed as Harry's copy of the Hogwarts textbook that was mentioned in the first Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

The project, which was first announced in September 2013, will be produced by Harry Potter regular David Heyman, whose recent successes include Gravity.

Emma Watson, who played Hermione in the seven Harry Potter films, has even said previously that she may appear in the Fantastic Beasts movies. “I would definitely be up for a cameo!” Watson told MTV News.

Fantastic Beasts, which is set 70 years prior to the arrival of Potter and his pals at the magical Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, will feature the swashbuckling adventurer Newt Scamander.

Aside from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, she also wrote the short book Quidditch Through the Ages - another of Harry's schoolbooks. They were published in aid of Comic Relief.

Another Potter spin-off book, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, followed in December 2008.

Warner Bros.' plans include leveraging this new series into a video game, consumer products and digital initiatives. It will also expand the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme parks in conjunction with partner Universal Parks and Resorts.
