But, Jo isn’t finished with the Potterverse just yet. Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, set 70 years before Harry sets foot in Hogwarts, is due to hit cinemas in 2016. The first instalment of the trilogy will star Oscar-winner, Eddie Redmayne, as Newt Scamander.
There’s also a new story, (which the author insists isn’t prequel – but it kind of is) coming to the stage next year, entitled Harry Potter & The Cursed Child. Tickets will go on sale in the autumn, and it’s due to debut in London next year.
And, of course all of the magic is available online from your favourite app store to enjoy on your tablet or mobile device. iOS users should head to the App Store and Android users should visit the Google Play Store.
