“Fantastic Beasts” Sequel is in the Works, Being Written by J.K. Rowling

From Warner Bros --

As anticipation builds for the November 18th release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ adventure “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the Studio has announced plans to return to J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World for the next film in the series, slated for worldwide release on November 16, 2018. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

Wizarding world creator J.K. Rowling, who made her screenwriting debut on the first film, is scripting the sequel.

The second “Fantastic Beasts” movie moves deeper into an increasingly dark time for the wizarding world, where Newt and our other heroes have to decide on their allegiances.

Director David Yates (the final four “Harry Potter” films) will again take the helm, having recently completed work on “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” The new film will also reunite producers David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen will serve as executive producers.

The “Fantastic Beasts” franchise is an important part of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, a brand which continues to expand. The new play, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two,” has just opened to rave reviews in London, drawing rapturous applause in sold out performances, and the script of the play, just published, has already seen unprecedented sales for a script book. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme parks at Universal Studios in Orlando, Hollywood and Osaka, Japan, continue to entertain record crowds and Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter offers another extremely popular experience for fans of all ages. There is much more on the horizon, all highlighting that the global interest in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World in every medium is stronger than ever.

The “Fantastic Beasts” films will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

New Lumos gala tickets released for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

From Lumos --

 

Lumos and the producers of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have today released further tickets to the gala performance of the play, in an online auction to benefit Lumos. The Lumos gala performance of both Part One and Part Two of the play will take place on Sunday 18 September at the Palace Theatre in London’s West End. J.K. Rowling will attend and introduce the play.

Tickets are combined with special prizes and collectable items, including signed copies of the script book and VIP tickets to Warner Bros Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter.  

The tickets are available through the online auction website Givergy https://givergy.com/charity/lumos with opening bids starting at £100 for two tickets for both Part One and Part Two of the play.

Thanks to the generosity of the play’s producers and Lumos’ 100% Pledge, every penny donated and raised in the auction will go directly to Lumos’ Families Not Orphanages Fund that will help children in the countries where Lumos works to leave orphanages and return to a family life.  Donations do not go towards administration, fundraising or overhead costs. 

The gala performance of the play is one of a series of exciting events for Lumos this Autumn in the We Are Lumos Worldwide campaign aimed at enhancing awareness of the harm caused to children placed in orphanages and raising funds for Lumos’ Families Not Orphanages Fund.  Other events include an advance screening of the new film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in New York City on 12 November, with a chance to see J.K. Rowling in conversation with the film’s main star and Academy Award-winner Eddie Redmayne.

An estimated eight million children around the world live in orphanages and institutions, despite 80% having at least one living parent that could care for them with some support.

A new, two minute film, showing how Lumos helps individual families and children, has also been released today. It tells the story of Lumos’ work to reunite one mother with her baby, who had been sent to an institution as soon he was born, due to a disability diagnosis at birth – just one of the 2,376 children supported by the organisation in the last year to leave orphanages.

Over the past decade, Lumos has helped thousands of other children – from infants to older children – return to family life in Central and Eastern Europe and more recently in Haiti. Now, in its second decade, Lumos is expanding its work in Latin America and the Caribbean, and other regions around the world with the aim to end institutionalisation of children globally by 2050.
