"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" to be Released November 2016

The first movie in the "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" trilogy will be released on November 18th, 2016, according to Variety:

Set initially in New York about seven decades before the start of the Harry Potter story, the films will follow “magizoologist” Newt Scamander as an extension of the wizarding world — rather than being prequels or sequels.

The Warner Bros.-Rowling partnership on “Fantastic Beasts” had been jointly announced in September with Rowling adapting the script from the 2001 book, ostensibly written by the fictional Newt Scamander.

Tsujihara had said at that point that “Fantastic Beasts” would resemble the eight Harry Potter movies in response to a question of whether the films would re-use the same sets, currently housed at Warner’s Leavesden Studios in London.

Wow, that far out? I guess it can’t be helped. They would be fools not to reuse some of the “town” sets from the other movies.

I don’t remember the book taking place in New York. I have to go back and read them.

Yeah, New York? Really? I don’t remember the book actually being set in any particular place. I always thought that the author would have lived in the UK somewhere.
