Harry Potter Screenwriter Set to Co-Write ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’

As much as we love the Harry Potter films, all Potter fans can pretty much agree that the, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was very disappointing. Out of all the Potter films this one has the lowest rating on Rotten Tomatoes with a score of 37%.



According to CNBC it also has the lowest bow office haul, with a total of $160 Million dollars, which may seem like a lot, but when it comes to Potter it’s not even scratching the surface. Its first film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, holds a box office haul of $814 million, and before that, the final Potter film, Deathly Hallows Part 2 hauled $1.3 billion.

J.K. Rowling, creator of the Potter universe penned the script for the first two Fantastic Beasts movies, added some confusing plot twists that left fans in an outrage.

Now, she will be joined by Steve Kloves, who helped adapt the Potter films from book to screen. David Yates, will continue to direct, as he directed the final four Potter films and the first two Beasts movies. The cast, such as leading man Eddie Redmayne will continue his role as Newt Scamander, as well as Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore, Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald, and Ezra Miller as Credence. Along with Alison Sudol and Katherine Waterston as Tina and Queen Goldstein, and our favorite No-Maj Jacob Kowalski will be portrayed by Dan Folger.

Unfortunately, the third installment won’t be released in theaters until November 12, 2021. It will begin filming in Spring of 2020, in Rio de Janeiro.

3 Harry Potter Cover Redesigns We Need Right Now!

The internet is full of strange and wonderful things, and it seems like everyone online has more talent in their pinkie than I do in my whole body. I love it. There’s a wonderfully large community for book cover redesigns, and every cover re-designers should probably have professional book design jobs. You may ask, will we ever have enough designs for Harry Potter dust jackets? These artists don’t seem to think so.


1. Art Deco Redesign by asheaths on Tumblr


These are simple but punchy, and they would make beautiful display copies. The shelf envy would be so real. Designs for the spines weren’t included, but even stacked they’d be gorgeous.

2. Stylized German Book Covers by Olly Moss


These designs may seem more traditional, but don’t let the clean simplicity of the art style fool you. Through details and color, these covers convey the feeling of each book like you’re reading them again for the first time.

3. Glow In The Dark Cutouts by Kincso Nagy


The piece de resistance—cutout and luminous, these copies glow inside and out. Beautiful cutouts back by luminescent paint, popup illustrations, and pretty matte covers make these outrageously beautiful. I want a hundred.

Now You Can Purchase Your Own Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak

Harry Potter fans know the invisibility cloak all to well. One of the three Deathly Hallows, this magical artifact allows anyone who wears it the power to turn invisible. It became a useful tool for Harry throughout the years. Now, us Muggles have the chance to purchase our own invisibility cloak.

Toy maker WOW Stuff is making an invisibility cloak that will be compatible with a free phone app. The cloak itself has a green screen effect that when viewed on the app will turn whoever wears it invisible on their phone’s camera.
