The ever-expanding Harry Potter universe just got larger.
The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them spinoff will be a five-film franchise, J.K. Rowling said at a Warner Bros. fan event in London on Thursday.
We always knew that it was going to be more than one movie we knew that from the start so we set a trilogy as a sort of placeholder, because we knew there would be more than one movie, Rowling said at the Empire Theatre in London. But Ive now done the plotting properly, so were pretty sure its going to be five movies.
Rowling wrote the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts, which marks her first script.
