'We've done the first one, she's written the second one, and she's got ideas for the third one,' said director David Yates
It's almost 20 years since the initial release of 'Harry Potter' and the wizarding saga seems to be far from over. 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' hasn't even hit the cinemas yet and author JK Rowling is ready with the script for its sequel.
In an interview, director David Yates said that Rowling, who is making her screenwriting debut with the 'Harry Potter' spin-off, has already finished the second one and has various ideas for the third, reports the Independent.
"We've done the first one, she's written the second one, (and) she's got ideas for the third one," said the director of 'Fantastic Beasts'.
Yates also discussed the difference between working on the past 'Harry Potter' adaptations - 'Order of the Phoenix', 'Half-Blood Prince' and both parts of the 'Deathly Hallows' - and the upcoming film.
He noted, "It's sort of lovely in a way. When we adapted the books, you would always have to leave out things that you hate leaving out because they didn't quite work within the structure of the storytelling for the movie, or the movie would just be far too long. With this, it's just pure JK (Rowling) from the first page to the last page."
'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' is all set to hit the UK theatres on 18 November.
