Harry Potter Spin-Off Book 'To Become Movie Trilogy'
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them reportedly in line to be made into three 'megamovies'...
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them was presented as one of Harry Potter's Hogwarts books when it first went into print - and it was revealed last September that it was being adapted for the big screen.
However The New York Times now claims that the book will actually be strung out across three "megamovies" - which will not be prequels or sequels.
Set in New York around 70 years before the original Harry Potter movies take place, the new films will be focused on a "magizoologist" named Newt Scamander.
The information was revealed in a profile interview with new Warner Brother boss Kevin Tsujihara.
