J.K. Rowling Has Already Written The Sequel To 'Fantastic Beasts'
J.K. Rowling is once again proving that she is an absolute MACHINE after it was confirmed that she's already written the next Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them script. Bearing in mind, the first movie's not even out yet.
Anyway, director of several Harry Potter movie and Fantastic Beasts, David Yates, recently spoke at the premiere of another of his films where he confirmed that she'd finished the script.
He told Reuters: "She's done the first one. She's written the second one. She's got ideas for the third one."
Explaining how the process for this movie was different, he said: "When we adapted the books, you would always have to leave out things that you hated leaving out because they didn't quite work within the structure of the storytelling for the movie or the movie would just be far too long. With this, it's just pure Jo from the first page to the last page."
J.K. wrote a short version of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them for Comic Relief back in 2001, but this was merely 'inspired' by the Hogwarts textbook.

Can't wait to see what she comes up with next. So come on, George R.R.! Pull your finger out of your arse and get writing. J.K's making a muggle out of you.
