Welcome to the Legion!


Potterheads, this is going to make you very, very happy! Today during a live Facebook Q&A, maker of magic and Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling just announced exactly how many more movies we’re getting after Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them. As you know, this November, we’re learning more about the author of Hermione Granger’s favorite book, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). He’s traveling to New York City in the 1920s with a case of some amazing beasties and things don’t go exactly as planned.

Well, it looks like we’re going to be living in the world of wizards, witches and no-majs (that’s the American word for muggles) for a lot longer. In a tweet, it was confirmed that we’re getting five movies in total! Five, you guys! So, get those patronuses ready and find out your new House! Check out the tweet below!


Squee! Here’s the official synopsis: “The year is 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will hit theaters on November 18, 2016.
