the story of the four founders of Hogwarts:
Over a thousand years ago, the four greatest witches and wizards of the age dream to protect the young wizards of the muggle persecution during the dark middle age.
Godric Gryffindor (Richard Madden), Helga Hufflepuff (Rachel Weisz), Rowena Ravenclaw (Gemma Arterton) and Salazar Slytherin (Michael Fassbeder) build a castle together, far from Muggle eyes. They live in harmony during a moment, until Salazar begins to want to accept only pure blood in the school. The dissensions start between the four, until an epic fight…
My jaw dropped. There should be a Hogwarts Prequel!

GREATEST FAN MADE TRAILER I HAVE EVER SEEN. Casting is freaking PERFECT.
Fassy as Salazar is the hottest thing I’ve ever seen.
someone needs to ask JK about this
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE FOREVER. I NEVER WANT THIS VIDEO TO END.
Warner Bros. Entertainment today announced an expanded creative partnership with world-renowned, best-selling author J.K. Rowling. At the center of the partnership is a new film series from Rowling’s world of witches and wizards, inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” and the adventures of the book’s fictitious author, Newt Scamander. The announcement was made by Kevin Tsujihara, Chief Executive Officer, Warner Bros. Entertainment.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” will be an original story and will mark Rowling’s screenwriting debut. It is planned as the first picture in a new film series. Set in the wizarding world, the story will feature magical creatures and characters, some of which will be familiar to devoted Harry Potter fans.
And Rowling’s extended quote on the new movie, which will be set globally, starting in New York …
“It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ into a film. I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author of ‘Fantastic Beasts,’ realized by another writer was difficult. Having lived for so long in my fictional universe, I feel very protective of it and I already knew a lot about Newt. As hard-core Harry Potter fans will know, I liked him so much that I even married his grandson, Rolf, to one of my favourite characters from the Harry Potter series, Luna Lovegood.
As I considered Warners’ proposal, an idea took shape that I couldn’t dislodge. That is how I ended up pitching my own idea for a film to Warner Bros.
Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world. The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway.
I particularly want to thank Kevin Tsujihara of Warner Bros. for his support in this project, which would not have happened without him. I always said that I would only revisit the wizarding world if I had an idea that I was really excited about and this is it.”
American wizards, eh?
