J.K. Rowling Reveals Big Clue About 'Fantastic Beasts' Plot
This weekend just gone, the wizzarding world expanded its boundaries for many fans as they first watched Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.
The film explores Newton Scamander, a Magizoologist who arrives in New York in 1926 following a journey around the world to research creatures for his book, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.
It's set 70 years before Harry Potter picked up the book and read it for the first time.
Following the film's opening weekend, J.K. Rowling has since shared a bit more information about the series timeline.

Our story starts in 1926 and ends in 1945. It's just too big to fit in one movie! https://t.co/fb5GOGvTxq

To the non-Potter fan, these details would be nothing by words and numbers in a Tweet. However, those who understand the chronological history will know that 1945 is a significant year in magical history and Rowling has just dropped a huge hint into what happens next (deliberately, I would say).
The series of films will conclude in 1945, which, as well as the end of World War II, is the same year that Albus Dumbledore had his infamous duel with Grindelwald and became the rightful owner of the Elder Wand.
Therefore, it looks like Rowling and the crew will be dragging out four more films before giving the fans what they really want - another pinnacle moment in history; a battle between good and evil!
