J.K Rowling is writing a screenplay for the first in a series of new movies based on the "Harry Potter" universe. The only thing is that Harry isn't in it. It's set 70 years before Harry's time and it's not even a prequel to the books!
It is about Newt Scamander, a character who wrote the Hogwarts textbook, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." The series will revolve around Newt and the textbook.
