J.K Rowling has written three short stories about the Harry Potter Wizarding World, which will be released this fall.
The Harry Potter fandom has recently been buzzing with excitement, despite the fact that the last book was published almost ten years ago. The eighth part of the story, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, is currently lighting up the stages of London. Along with that, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will hit theaters in November. The movie portrays the story of American wizard Newt Scamander, and is set 70 years before the Harry Potter story.
