Some of you have already heard, I'm sure, but an announcement recently on JK Rowling's website details the writer's screenwriting debut for a film series of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Supposedly it will follow the "author" of the book, Newt Scamander, from New York through his writing of the text.
One of my favorite things about the Harry Potter universe is the level of thought Rowling put into history and details about the wizarding world, and Fantastic Beasts and Quidditch Through the Ages were like a dream come true for my nerdy need to know more background about things like wizard sports, history, politics, etc. I.e. I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS!!!!! I'm not sure how much I trust Warner Brothers not to screw this up, but with Rowling writing the screenplay herself, I at least have to hope they will be better than the HP movies (which, don't get me wrong, are decent, but didn't do a great job of capturing the tone of the books).
