London, July 5: When the first part of ‘ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is gearing up for its release later this year, JK Rowling has already finished the second one and has various ideas for the third. According to director David Yates, author JK Rowling, who is making her screenwriting debut with ‘Fantastic Beasts,’ is “done the first one, she’s written the second one, [and] she’s got ideas for the third one,” reports the Independent.

Yates also discussed the difference between working on the past ‘Harry Potter’ adaptations and the upcoming film. “It’s sort of lovely in a way. When we adapted the books, you would always have to leave out things that you hate 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 [Rowling] from the first page to the last page,” he said.
For the unversed, Yates helmed ‘ Order of the Phoenix,’ ‘ Half-Blood Prince,’ and both parts of the ‘ Deathly Hallows.’ ‘ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ will be hitting UK cinemas on November 18.
