(Newser) – Fellow Hufflepuffs rejoice: Warner Bros. has announced the Harry Potter spin-off featuring Hufflepuff magizoologist Newt Scamander will be a trilogy. Scamander is the writer of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is a Hogwarts text book in the Harry Potter novel series. The film will follow the adventures that take place during the writing of the book, which was published for wizards in 1927. The story is set in New York 70 years before the start of Harry's journey but is not meant to be a prequel. JK Rowling managed to write the first draft of the screen play in just 12 days.
