The point when Warner Bros. made the report a year ago that J.k. Rowling was composing the screenplay for a Harry Potter spinoff film called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, they distinctly said Rowling might compose “the first film“, showing it might be a bigger arrangement.
We now have a finer thought of what the full arrange is, as the New York Times has uncovered that the Fantastic Beasts arrangement is as of now arranged as a set of three, particularly expressing that three mega movies are arranged. The data arrived in a Times profile of Warner Bros. Chief Kevin Tsujihara, noting how one of his huge triumphs in his brief time in his position so far was persuading Rowling to extend the Potter universe into additional movies, something recognized a hard offer.
As reported in New York Times Rowling tells, “When I say he made Fantastic Beasts happen, it isn’t P.R.-speak but the literal truth. We had one dinner, a follow-up telephone call, and then I got out the rough draft that I’d thought was going to be an interesting bit of memorabilia for my kids and started rewriting!”
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is situated 70 prior years the occasions in Harry Potter, however is not viewed as a prequel fundamentally, in that its not by any stretch of the imagination associated with the story of the Potter books and movies. Rather, it will concentrate on Newt Scamander, a master in enchanted animals, who was the assumed writer of the course book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which Rowling composed as a Potter-related buddy to raise cash for the philanthropy association Comic Relief in 2001.
The point when Rowling was questioned by Emma Watson as of late for Wonderland magazine, she demonstrated how her really composing the Fantastic Beasts film was a huge amazement for Warner Bros. Warner Bros. came to her a long time back and said they needed to do something with Fantastic Beasts. She could see the potential in it. She knew something about Newt having composed a bit of something for Comic Relief. She had envisioned a tad bit of back story for him. So when Warner Bros. came to her and said they needed to make a film out of the book she had this concurrent feeling of it has a considerable measure of potential, and an alternate feeling of slight frenzy that she knows a few things about Newt and she doesn’t need him to demolish that for her! On the grounds that she knew who he was. So then she went away and kind of harped on what she thought about Newt, not planning to compose a script yet simply attempting to gather her musings with the goal that she could at any rate provide for them the back-story she’d envisioned, so that their vision was correct to what she knew.
According to her, ” Then I really did have one of those moments that always make you phenomenally excited as a writer; but also that you know is going to end up being a ton of work. I thought, ‘Oh my God, a whole plot’s just descended on me!’ But I wanted to do it as I was really excited about it. I wasn’t really thinking about writing the script myself, I thought, you know, I’ll give them this plot and then – fatally – I sat down and thought ‘I just wonder what it would look like…’ and wrote a rough draft in twelve days!”
Rowling includes, “It wasn’t a great draft but it did show the shape of how it might look. So that is how it all started… I think they were kind of stunned. I didn’t tell them I had written it in twelve days. I’ve never written a script. It truly wasn’t that I thought I’d be good at it, I just wanted to get the outline of the story down, and that’s obviously given me a lot to work with going forward.”
Story specifics on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them are constantly held under wraps, aside from the way that it starts in New York City. Coupled with the period setting, at some point around the 1930s, and it seems like there will be a considerable measure to separate this arrangement from Harry Potter, even as it stretches the universe of that arrangement.
