J.K. Rowling Is Already Penning The Script For 'Fantastic Beasts 3'

Warner Bros. has so much confidence in its Fantastic Beasts series that it ordered five whole films before the second one has even been released. With months still to go until the sequel movie hits cinemas, it has been revealed that J.K. Rowling is already hard at work on the third chapter in the franchise.

Revealing the news during a Q&A on her site, the writer explained: "I’ve just finished the fourth Galbraith novel, ‘Lethal White,’ and I’m now writing the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts 3."

Looks like we still have years of Harry Potter action ahead of us, then – especially considering the third movie isn't expected to hit until 2020 at the earliest. Keep your eyes peeled for more news. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will release on November 16 this year.
