OH MY GAAAWWWD!! Okay, but seriously…
OH MY GAAAWWWD!! This is the best news to come out of the wizarding world since… the end of the seventh book (spoilers narrowly avoided here).
J.K. Rowling herself is penning the screenplay, which she’s made very clear is not a sequel or prequel, but rather an extension of that oh-so-magical world. The plot will be following Newt Scamander, author of popular magic textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (which you can actually buy – I recommend it!).
My brain’s still buzzing with excitement over this. I need a soothing spell – anyone?
