Get Ready For 5 More 'Harry Potter' Movies

October 14, 2016
I'm a Harry Potter fan, but this announcement feels like overkill.

JK Rowling, author of Harry Potter, announced that the spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be made into five movies. Previously it was going to be a trilogy.

I get that they want to make as much money as possible, and of course now they have a couple of theme parks to sustain for the next couple decades.

Rowling wants you to also know it will be only five movies though: The movies take place before the original Harry Potter series, and the first one comes out next month.
