The first of JK Rowling’s five new stories from her world of wizardry has finally been released on the big screen today. “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them” is a part of the same universe that was shown in the Harry Potter films, but this one goes back to the New York City in the 1920s. The story revolves around Newt Scamander who is a magi-zoologist and carries magical creatures in his suitcase.
This is just the first movie, and fans are already excited for the following four sequels as there’s news of Johnny Depp entering into the plot as Grindelwald. A young Dumbledore will also be seen in the upcoming movies, so it’s only fair that fans are anticipating the next releases very eagerly. The titles of the next “Fantastic Beasts” movies is a very important question, and we think an answer has been given out by the movie’s star Eddie Redmayne.
Eddie revealed in a recent interview that the upcoming sequels will be named in a style similar to the Harry Potter movies. He said that he asked the same question to David Heyman and David Yates, and the answer was quite interesting. He said that if they go forward with the movies, “Fantastic Beasts” will be retained as the first half of the title. The second half of the title will be completed by words starting with “and the…”.
The scripts are being penned by JK Rowling, the writer of all the stories. Whether or not there will a “Fantastic Beasts” sequel depends on how well the first film does at the box office. But of course, with positive reviews and the ever popular “Harry Potter” label, the film’s success can already be predicted.
Talking about some interesting facts about the “Fantastic Beasts” movie, the last story ends with the rise of the evil Lord Voldemort. Rowling said, “I think we wanted to be honest with people that it was going to be more than one movie, but we were feeling our way. And then there came a point in the draft of the story where I said to David [Yates], ‘you know David this feels like five movies’.”
Rowling also said that the makers are trying to span the five stories in 19 years, so to be able to tell all the five stories in five movies is a bit too ambitious. However, she’s confident about the number as she wrote the stories herself. Meanwhile, it has already been guessed that the story of the fifth film ends in 1945. That’s when Grindelwald is defeated in a duel by Dumbledore, and Tom Riddle leaves Hogwarts as a young Voldemort.
