When it was announced that J.K. Rowling would be returning to the Harry Potter universe to pen Newt Scamander's adventures in creating the wizarding textbook (and 2001 Rowling spin-off book) Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them , the Pot-heads of the world rejoiced. Well, get ready to rejoice some more, because Mr. Scamander's adventures are coming to the big screen as a trilogy, according to a New York Times report.

The Harry Potter novels and films may be done with, but there's at least one more game on the way featuring the coming-of-age mage. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced Harry Potter for Kinect, an Xbox 360 game set for release in the fall.
