Harry Potter Gets a Spinoff: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Harry Potter Gets a Spinoff: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Have you been going through Harry Potter withdrawal? Would you give anything to see your favorite wizards and witches come back to the big screen?  Well, Warner Bros and J.K. Rolling are going to scratch that Potter itch. Recently announced, the world of Harry Potter is returning in a spinoff trilogy (three, my friends. THREE movies!) titled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Other than J.K. Rolling’s work on the screenplay, no other official crew or cast have been announced. mors have suggested that WB is circling Oscar winning Alfonso Curon for the director’s chair. Most recently known for Gravity, Alfonso is no stranger to the world of wizards, as he was the director of the third Harry Potter film, Prisoner of Azkban. I think this visionary director can make anything he touches into pure gold, so WB would do well to be seriously pursuing him.

Here’s a small synopsis, and Warner Bros has also sealed a release date for the film, returning us to one of our favorite magical worlds on November 18th, 2016. Here at elope, we’re dancing with excitement to see Harry Potter returning to the big screen.  Not to brag or anything, but we already have a vast collection of Harry Potter Accessories (totally bragging), so we look forward to potentially creating a new line inspired by these new stories. Stay tuned, Potterwatchers. (Three!)
