Sounds Like J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Is Getting A Movie Trilogy

We knew that the Harry Potter spinoff book was getting a movie, but three? Three of them? Break out the butterbeer!

There’s no official announcement yet, but judging by a recent article in the New York Times, this sounds like it’s at least on the table. This weekend, the Times published a profile of Warner Bros. C.E.O. Kevin Tsujihara, who originally coaxed J.K. Rowling into writing the Fantastic Beasts screenplay. Tucked in among details about his career history was an interesting tidbit about the movie — or, as it turns out, movies.

J.K. Rowling Published New Harry Potter-Universe Content Online Today

Surprise! While J.K. Rowling is busy promoting her new book series, she secretly finished History of the Quidditch World Cup. And she just published the first half online for free. You should be able to read it here but it seems Pottermore has been overloaded. I’m not surprised. You may recall Warner Bros was able to convince the offer to continue the Harry Potter juggernaut on the big screen with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (she’s also working on an HP prequel for the London stage). I wonder if this story will be next? Either way, part 2 of History of the Quidditch World Cup will be published on Pottermore on Friday, March 21.

J.K. Rowling’s Publisher Denies Seven-Book Series For The Cuckoo’s Calling

The internet went all aflutter this week after an article in the Sunday Times claimed that J.K. Rowling’s pseudonymous crime novel would be expanding into a seven-part set. Seemed appropriate, given Rowling’s apparent affinity for the number. However, it sounds as if the Times put the carriage ahead of the Thestral. Rowling’s publisher, Little, Brown, replied in no uncertain terms: “There aren’t seven books planned in the series.”

More Shipping Talk From the J.K. Rowling Interview That Broke The Internet

Harry Potter fans, you’ll always remember where you were and what you were doing the first time you heard about The Interview. You know, the one where J.K. Rowling said the Hermione/Ron relationship was “wish fulfillment,” and the two of them never should have ended up together. Well it turns out that particularly incendiary quote was part of a larger Wonderland Magazine interview (conducted by Emma Watson, by the way) that has since popped up on MuggleNet. In addition to Rowling talking about Hermione/Ron and Hermione/Harry, she also addresses the upcoming Harry Potter stage play and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them series. If you’d rather not jump back into the maw of ship wars, skip to the bolded text.

J.K. Rowling Sues the Daily Mail for Libel

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is suing the Daily Mail for libel after they published an article in September titled “How JK Rowling’s sob story about her past as a single mother has left the churchgoers who cared for her upset and bewildered” online and “How JK Rowling’s sob story about her single mother past has surprised and confused the church members who cared for her” in print. The article related to a recent piece Rowling had written for a charity website about the struggles faced by single parents.  This case comes at an interesting time legally, as libel laws in the UK have recently changed.

J.K. Rowling Is Developing a Harry Potter Prequel for the London Stage

When the last Harry Potter movie came out in 2011, no one expected there to be plans for a new film series within two and a half years, never mind a new film series and a new play.* And yet that’s exactly what’s happened. In September Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was announced, and now we’ve learned that J.K. Rowling is developing a Harry Potter play for the West End.

Accio tickets to London!

*It makes sense, because dolla dolla bills y’all, but I refuse to be cynical about more Harry Potter.
