Warner Bros. has announced that today marks the first day of principal photography for FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM. David Yates is directing the Harry Potter spinoff from a script by author J.K. Rowling, but there's been no word on if he will be back to helm the planned sequels.

Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne was cast as Newt Scamander, "the wizarding world’s preeminent magizoologist, who stops in New York following his travels to find and document magical creatures," earlier this summer, and film will also feature the talents of Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Samantha Morton, Jenn Murray and newcomer Faith Wood-Blagrove. FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM will be set seventy years prior to the events from the Potter books and movies.

I'm not a massive Potter fan, meaning I enjoyed the novels and films, but never felt a need to revisit them. However, I am curious to see what Warner Bros. and company will do with the spinoff. Where does FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM rank on your list of most anticipated movies of 2016?

FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM hits theaters on November 18, 2016, while the second installment is set to be released on November 16, 2018, and the threequel will open on November 20, 2020.

Cant wait!

I just finished reading all 7 books again, and was still blown away by how intricate and exciting they are. I really wish there were more, but at least now I can look forward to this spinoff. Getting back into the magical world created back Rowling will be a treat.
Someday, im certain the films will be remade, hopefully in a television-type series ala Netflix.

I'm willing to give it a shot

I like Joanne Rowling's writing, both her detective novels and the Harry Potter series. I'd like to see more of this world.

I'll see anything that has to do with Harry Potter, I just hope these movies don't turn into The Hobbit.

I love Harry Potter. I have read each book multiple times, and have viewed the movies multiple times. However, as time wears on the movies do not hold up all that well. The Potter world is amazing and has great film potential, hopefully this eclipses the quality of the previous films.

'I'm not a massive Potter fan' - clearly you were the best person to report on this article then or was it the fact we kept Yanks away from ruining those films.

Biggest pet peeve of mine about this site. Giving articles to the wrong people.

Precisely, Potter is today's equivalent of Star Wars and is responsible for millions of box office cheddar, throw in the money made from everything else plus the theme park built in Orlando and its s something we Brits treasure, JK Rowling is a genius to come up with the whole Potter idea. Aside from the majority of the movies being brilliant - 'crazy hicks comment about they don't hold up well' are you kidding me???

Potential

The Harry Potter world is massive and deserves to be explored. My only concern is continuing the balance between practical effects with physical sets versus a cgi infested environment where actors can not do much with what they're given--look at how bad The Hobbit Trilogy looked. Otherwise, I'm pretty excited to see the magical world of the US.
