David Yates is returning to the world of HARRY POTTER!

The director of the last four HARRY POTTER films will once again be adapting JK Rowling’s vision for the big screen, this time with the spin-off series FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM!

Rowling is writing the screenplay for the movie, which is set 70 years before the events of the Potter series, and centers on a fictitious author named Newton Artemis Fido Scamander. In Potter lore, Scamander compiled a reference guide to magical beasts, and the movies will follow his adventures after he is commissioned to write the tome. Unlike the Potter stories, which kicked off in London, Fantastic Beasts will begin in New York.

No word on whether or not Yates will be directing all three movies in the series or just the first film, but we’ll keep you updated!
