J. K. Rowling i Warner Bros. planiraju adaptirati udžbenik iz Hogwartsa – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, u filmsku avanturu koja će pratiti život izmišljenog autora knjige Newta Scamandera. Ovo će biti prvi put da će se Rowling okušati u pisanju scenarija za film od kojeg se očekuje da bude tek prvi u nizu novih filmova o svijetu čarobnjaka kojeg fanovi Harryja Pottera poznaju i vole.

Newt Scamander nije novo lice u Potterovom univerzumu. Njegovo ime se spominje u prvoj knjizi Harry Potter i Kamen mudraca kao autora spomenutog udžbenika. Osim toga, zna se da je vrlo cijenjen bivši ravnatelj Hogwartsa, čiji se lik povremeno pojavljuje na živim portretima u školi. Scamandera se smatra najvećim ekspertom u području magizoologije – znanosti o magičnim bićima. Kao dijete je pokazao iznimno zanimanje za hippogriffe te se kasnije zaposlio u Ministarstvu magije. 1918. započinje s istraživanjima koja su, nakon skoro desetljeća rada, urodila knjigom Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

J. K. Rowling je izjavila slijedeće: “Premda će se radnja odvijati u svijetu vještica i čarobnjaka u kojemu sam provela 17 predivnih godina, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them nije niti nastavak, niti prequel Harry Potter franšize, to je proširenje čarobnjačkog svijeta. Zakoni i običaji skrivenog čarobnog društva bit će poznati svakome tko je pročitao ili pogledao bilo koju Harry Potter knjigu ili film, ali će Newtova priča započeti u New Yorku, sedamdeset godina ranije.

“It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ into a film. I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author of ‘Fantastic Beasts’, realized by another writer was difficult. Having lived for so long in my fictional universe, I feel very protective of it and I already knew a lot about Newt. As hard-core Harry Potter fans will know, I liked him so much that I even married his grandson, Rolf, to one of my favourite characters from the Harry Potter series, Luna Lovegood.

As I considered Warners’ proposal, an idea took shape that I couldn’t dislodge. That is how I ended up pitching my own idea for a film to Warner Bros.

Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world. The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway.

I particularly want to thank Kevin Tsujihara of Warner Bros. for his support in this project, which would not have happened without him. I always said that I would only revisit the wizarding world if I had an idea that I was really excited about and this is it.”

    Jako sam sretna :) Proširenje tog svijeta u bilo kojem obliku i još ćemo vidjeti toliko toga što nije stalo u HP filmove, toliko stvorenja…WB i Rowling u tandemu, divota. Vidim pravu vizualnu poslasticu(i 3D vjerojatno). Što je sljedeće… tales of beedle the bard, metloboj. Leptirići mi rade :)
