Quick to cash-in on Potter literature, Warner Bros. have set a date for FANTASTIC BEASTS & WHERE TO FIND THEM which is now set for November 18, 2016. That, it should be said, is a US release date so we in the UK can expect it either then or sometime around that date.
The film, which is very loosely based on the book, is to be penned by its creator J.K. Rowling as she attempts to work a story from the book into a potential trilogy for the studio.
The film will have new characters and creatures along with familiar ones to Potter aficionados from the Wizarding World. Whether you’re sceptical or not, it’s clear that Warner Bros. and Rowling aren’t with the wheels in motion.
