Last week a bunch of "Harry Potter" fans were delighted to learn that the magical universe that author J.K. Rowling created, was about to expand. Warner Bros. has announced that Rowling will adapt Harry's textbook in the film "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" into a new cinematic world, continuing the franchise with a prequel of sorts.

Now eight time "Harry Potter" producer, David Heyman, has discussed what little details we can expect to learn this early in the ideation stage. Heyman stated, "I can't talk really about it yet. All I can say is that it's great. Jo had no need to go back to this universe or world. It's not Harry Potter per se, but the world of Harry. She's chosen to do so because she felt a need to tell a story. That she's doing it means that it's going to be very, very special."

Rowling has definitely created an incredible and complex world of wizards, witches, and other unusual creatures, so it doesn't feel farfetched that this expanded universe will also be special. "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them", the first film in the expanded spin-off series, is said to follow Newt Scamander 70 years before the events depicted in the first "Harry Potter".

What do you make of Heyman's statement? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
