'Harry Potter' spin-off 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them' gets release date

The big screen adaptation of Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them will arrive in cinemas in November 2016.

Warner Bros have confirmed a release date of November 18, 2016 for the film, which is based on a 54-page book written by author JK Rowling in 2001. Casting and a director have yet to be confirmed.

The film is expected to focus on fictional "magizoologist" author Newton Scamander and reports suggest it will be set in New York in about 70 years' time. It is also believed to be the first in a trilogy.

David Heyman – who served as producer on all eight of the Harry Potter films – will act as producer on Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.
