We previously reported that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling not only agreed to a movie adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Warner Bros., but she will be writing the screenplay as well. Now, according to an article posted online by Time magazine, the film will be in three parts. The first part will take place in New York, seven decades before Harry Potter and his friends were born. The protagonist will be the “magizoologist” author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Newt Scamander himself.
Originally, Ms. Rowling wrote the book, so that the profits will benefit UK’s Comic Relief , along with Quidditch Through The Ages. The books were mentioned in the Harry Potter series as part of the boy wizard’s curriculum at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. They are available to us, Muggles, at any retail bookstore. But the e-book editions are available at the Pottermore Shop.
The article quoted Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) from an interview with MTV in reference to the film:
“I would definitely be up for a cameo!”
If she did have one, naturally it wouldn’t be as the character to which she is well-known. Or would it? After all, we have learned that J.K. Rowling’s writing can be filled with magical surprises since that profound first chapter “The Boy Who Lived”.
