Although the Harry Potter spin-off film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hasn't even hit theaters yet, Warner Bros. and creator J.K. Rowling have already expanded their plans on the series from three movies to five. Take a look at their announcement:
(That's going from a 'trilogy' to a 'pentalogy' for those wordsmiths in our audience.)
Fantastic Beasts will debut in theaters November 18, with the the second and third films scheduled for November 16, 2018 and November 20, 2020, respectively.
This news comes just hours after a report indicated that two dates in 2019 and 2020 had been reserved for Warner Bros. "event films," but given the release dates Fantastic Beasts 2 and 3 it is highly unlikely there is any relation.
