    Warner Brothers announced a massive new partnership with the author, J K Rowling, to produce a new film franchise set on the world created in the Potter books - with the story kicking off in the most spell-binding of settings, New York City.

    Rowling’s first-ever screenplay is expected to be the first of a series of new films inspired by a Hogwarts textbook title, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," written by the fictional Newt Scamander, from the original series.

    “Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for 17 years, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,” said Rowling, in a statement. “The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, 70 years before Harry’s gets underway.”
