Warner Brothers recently released a block of dates for future movies which included possible schedules indicating production for not just one 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them' movie but three of them.

Previous news reports confirm that the trilogy will have a different set of cast and characters from the 'Harry Potter' franchise. Albus Dumbledore, however, will be appearing in the film. The Potter textbook's 'author' Newt Scamander, will also be introduced in the onscreen adaptation.

Warner Bros had already projected the first of the trilogy to be released on November 18, 2016. In the released schedule, November 16, 2018 as well as November 20, 2020 seem to be set for the 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them' movie sequels.

The two-year gap seems to be a long wait for the sequels, considering WB's yearly release of 'Lord Of The Rings' and 'The Hobbit.' However, those movies were filmed simultaneously, and even then, the production team had a hard time finalizing the special effects on time, according to Slashfilm.

The story will take place seven decades before Harry's time at Hogwarts which means a cameo by Daniel Radcliffe wouldn't be possible.

The film company has previously announced that the trilogy's primary filming location would again be Leavesden Studios (where the Potter movies were shot). Previous reports, however, suggest that the first movie's beginning would take place in New York.

As of now, very little detail is known about the production. Rumors earlier pegged Alfonso Cuaron to be the first film's director. WB has not said anything about the matter or released casting details of the adaptation.

The 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them' movie is based on JK Rowling's published work of the 54-page textbook from the Harry Potter universe in 2001. She had described the spinoff as "neither a prequel nor a sequel" of the Harry Potter books.

She has also produced an actual book of 'Tales Of Beedle The Bard' which was bequeathed to Hermione Granger by Dumbledore.
