J.K. Rowling doesn’t ever rest, it seems.
Not content with being the best-selling author of our time, with an amazing philanthropic streak to boot (check out her amazing children’s charity Lumos), she is now entering the world of screenwriting.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an all-new adventure movie which is set to be released this November and returns us to the wizarding world that J.K. Rowling created with Harry Potter.
The story begins in Ireland where an orphaned young girl who is a descendant of Hogwarts co-founder Salazar Slytherin, escapes her evil aunt and sets sail on the Mayflower.
The new movie stars the fantastic Eddie Redmayne
Landing in Massachusetts with little more than the clothes on her back and a stolen wand, she ventures out on her own, wandering in the wilderness until she encounters several mysterious creatures and discovers she is not the only magical person in the New World.
But she will also have to overcome great challenges and face new dangers on her way to establishing what will become the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at the peak of Mount Greylock in Massachusetts.
If your little ones can’t wait until November for the release date, they can read instalments from ‘Magic in North America’ from J.K. Rowling, which is all about the background to the school of witchcraft and wizardry on Pottermore.com.
And not only that, but they can watch the incredible trailer right here:
