‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Review: An Inventive Return to J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World
How do you make a successful Harry Potter prequel without Harry Potter? J.K. Rowling’s new spinoff, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, travels back nearly 70 years to 1926 before the events of the first Potter movie to tell a whole new story in a new setting with (almost) all new characters. Reviving the magical universe from the second biggest franchise of all time is a pretty risky move, but Fantastic Beasts does a good job of blending the familiar with the new.

Rumor: Warner Bros. Likes Money, Wants Daniel Radcliffe For ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ Trilogy
Just last month, Warner Bros. filed for a trademark on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the hit stage play (the script was also released in book form) that serves as the eighth installment in J.K.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set to make its debut on London’s West End this summer, offering a new sequel of sorts in the franchise, but one that will only be performed as a play. However, there’s some good news for all the devoted Harry Potter fans who won’t be able to attend the stage production: the script for the play will be published as a book in July — July 31, to be precise, which just happens to be one Mr. Potter’s birthday.

The final Harry Potter novel was full of grand battles and grander revelations, but it also featured a tiny detail that radically changed the saga’s timeline. Although J.K. Rowling’s first book in the beloved series was published in 1997 and the final book in 2007, a date on a gravestone revealed that the events of the final novel take place in 1997. That means that Harry Potter himself was born in 1980. Which means that he’s 35 in 2015. And according to Rowling herself, that makes today, September 1, 2015, the first day of school at Hogwarts for Harry’s eldest son.
