If you haven't heard already,
J.K Rowling has teamed up with Warner Bros.
to make her screenwriting debut!
The only twist?
Harry Potter won't be apart of it.
Warner Bros. announced Thursday that Rowling will write the screenplay for a movie based on "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,"
her textbook about the magical universe
she created in the Potter stories.
The story will focus on the book's fictitious author, Newt Scamander, and is anticipated to be the first in a series.
"Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world," Rowling said. "The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt's story will start in New York, 70 years before Harry's gets underway."
She added, "I always said that I would only revisit the wizarding world if I had an idea that I was really excited about and this is it."
