Harry Potter Director Back for Prequel

David Yates

The new Harry Potter spin-off movie is getting another Hogwarts alumnus.

Variety reports that the new movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be helmed by David Yates, the director behind the last four Harry Potter movies. The film will take place seventy years before the events of the existing stories, and chronicle the adventures of magizoologist and textbook author Newt Scamander. With Yates in the director’s chair, don’t be surprised if the film turns out a little dark, similar to his previous work in the franchise.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will cast a spell on audiences in November 2016. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is conjuring the screenplay, making this her first time writing the script for one of the magical films.
