She has also announced a prequel series of movies the first of which, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," had Hogwarts fans lining up for weeks. This coming October will see the release of even more "Harry Potter" books. These books will not be extensions of the story following character Harry Potter. Instead, they will focus on the history of the Wizarding World offering fans a never seen before insight into the world of "Harry Potter."
