Rejoice, Potter fans, for J.K. Rowling, Supreme Mugwump of the Potterverse, has released totally new material for us to read. We've also been treated to a little video teaser for the release, complete with J.K. Rowling herself explaining why she's so excited to pen more material on this particular era of the history of witchcraft and wizardry.
- A Rundown Of Newt's Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Creatures
- Familiarize Yourself With All The Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Characters So Far
- Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: News, Trailer, Release Date & All You Need To Know
J.K. tells us:
"Newt's been across pretty much every continent, but magic developed very differently in America. Newt accidentally walks right into the middle of Macusa and gets caught up into a society he doesn't understand. After the Potter books this was always where I was always interested in going. If I ever did anything, this is what I wanted to do."
Good on you for doing what you want to do, J.K. Now what I want to do is scuttle off and read all about MACUSA (the Magical Congress of the United States of America). It's "founded in controversy, shrouded in mystery and hidden in plain sight," so it's gotta be awesome — and vital background for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Are you excited for 'Fantastic Beasts' and the new Potterverse material?
