Just because the Harry Potter story has come to an end does not mean that Warn Bros. and J.K. Rowling are ready to jump off this cash cow just yet. Now that Harry Potter’s story has come to an end, Rowling is free to focus on other stories that happen in this same universe. She wants to focus on a series of spin-offs that follow some of the other great stories that this fictional world has to offer.

This move should not shock anyone. When a whole universe is created for a story, like it was with Harry Potter, the author is usually full of other stories they would like to tell. After all, it is ridiculous to think that Harry Potter’s story is the only one worth telling in a world that is full of such interesting characters. Of course, when Warner Bros. heard this, they were on board right away. After all, the Harry Potter series has made them a ton of money.

Despite all of this, people should not expect to hear more from Harry or his friends. Their story has come to an end. If you want to know how, go watch the Harry Potter movies! Now, Rowling is going to focus on other stories. The first one will be inspired by the Hogwarts textbook “Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them.” This was a book used in the Hogwarts class Care of Magical Creatures that Hagrid taught in the third novel. This textbook was actually later written by Rowling in 2001.

The CEO of Warner Bros., Kevin Tsujihara, admitted that he is excited for the movie. He said that the first film will be based on the book “Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them.” It will be an original story set in the world of Harry Potter but will not have anything to do with Harry. It will be full of magical creatures and characters that people who are familiar with the Potter series will remember.

When asked about this new film, Rowling said that she is very protective of her books. However, once she came up with this idea, she could not shake it and felt it should be made into a movie. She went on to say that the new movie will be set in the same world of wizards and witches that she has been so happy writing about for the past 17 years. It is neither a sequel nor a prequel to the Harry Potter series. It is just an extension of this world.

Rowling added that the laws and magical society will be very familiar to anyone who read the Harry Potter books or at least saw the films. However, this story takes place 70 years before Harry Potter ever started his journey and starts of in New York.
