IT’S music to the ears of Harry Potter fans around the world- the famous wizard is coming back to the big screen.
Warner Bros has announced author JK Rowling is working on three new wizard-based screenplays to be turned into a new movie trilogy to be released starting in 2016.
The first, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, will be directed by David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter movies, and reunite the same filmmaking team.

It is described as “set in an extension of her familiar wizarding world, featuring magical creatures and characters inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook and its fictitious author”.
A second movie is set for release in 2018 and a third in 2020, the studio said. The first movie was announced last month.
There’d been much speculation Rowling was planning something, after sending out some cryptic tweets that had Harry Potter fans on the edge of their seats.
Warner Bros did not announce who will direct or star in any of the three new scheduled films.
