ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Fans of the 'Harry Potter' series were treated to a special trailer at international fan events being held on Thursday (October 13) around the world. The feature kicked off the event and showed author J.K. Rowling talking about the new films and why she wanted to base them in New York in the 1920s. After the pre-produced feature, author J.K. Rowling said that the Potter spinoff movie franchise "Fantastic Beasts" will consist of five films, up from the previously announced three. Rowling was speaking to fans at a live event broadcast in movie theaters in selected cities around the world ahead of the November release of the first movie, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." "I can confirm it will be five new movies," she said. The films will be released by Warner Bros, a unit of Time Warner Inc. The British author of the best-selling "Harry Potter" books was speaking at a question-and-answer session with the "Fantastic Beasts" cast in London and Los Angeles. The event was broadcast in cities including Rome, Sao Paulo, Mexico City and New York. Fans were also treated to a preview of scenes from the first movie, starring Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne, which will open on Nov. 18. It marks Rowling's debut as a screenwriter. The film, in which Redmayne plays "magizoologist" Newt Scamander, is a spinoff from the Potter stories with new characters and plot, set in New York City in 1926. Scamander arrives in New York with a case of magical creatures that escape, wreak havoc and face threats from the nonmagical humans in the city. "Fantastic Beasts" taps into the eight-film Potter franchise that officially concluded with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" in 2011 and that has taken in more than $7 billion at the global box office. Rowling's seven-book series sold more than 450 million copies worldwide. Earlier this year, a new sold-out London play, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child," cast a spell all over again, and the book version of the script become a best-seller.
