    JK Rowling to pen Harry Potter spin-off film

    JK Rowling to pen Harry Potter spin-off film about the author of 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them', Newt Scamander:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-24067557

    Could this be the start of a series of movies featuring less well known characters from the Harry Potter series?

    I posted about that earlier in both the book thread and the movie thread -- so yes, I'm excited! Not sure how they'll rig up a plot yet, but I'm sure they'll figure it out.

    But I want it to be a stand-alone film.. Nothing would ruin the HP universe more than endless spinoffs.

    I wouldn't want it as a movie but as a mini-series or even a TV show would be fine. I love Rowling, HP and all things HP but I don't know that I'd be interested in seeing a movie about Newt Scamander in a theater...

    Glad to see she still gets to play in her world though

    I have the book, and I'm a big fan of mythological critters, so I'm a lot more excited about this film than I was/am about any of the HP films. I imagine this could be a proper adventure film, a romp around the world to find fantastic beasts, and/or save them from ignorant muggles/eville wizards.

    She is throwing us a bone. And WB knows there is more to be made on HP.

    He was willing to turn Harry over to the Deatheaters. Something his daughter would never have done. He deserved to have that erumpent horn blow up his house.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    Yes, and what exactly happened to Luna's mother? We know it was a spell gone bad but wouldn't it be nice to know the whole story?

    About his steamy affair with that evil hot wizard? That would be cool.

    I know, right? How can they make a film on a character we've never seen in the books/movies instead of the Marauders, Snape and Lily era? So unlogical.
