Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but J.K. Rowling and company already have big plans for the Harry Potter spin-off/prequel.

Although it was originally conceived as a trilogy, Deadline has announced that Fantastic Beasts will now be adding two more sequels. It was additionally confirmed on twitter that the magic will continue in a total of “FIVE MOVIES!”

Set in 1926 New York City, the first entry in the Fantastic Beasts series will center on Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). Little is known about the follow-up films, although director David Yates has stated that we will see other major cities outside of New York. He’s also hinted at a cameo from a young Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald.

Since the Harry Potter series consisted of seven books and eight blockbuster movies, it isn’t at all shocking that Fantastic Beasts is being expanded upon. But will four sequels really be warranted or could we have another Hobbit trilogy on our hands?

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them comes out on November 16. Until then, be sure to watch the live Q&A with the film’s cast.
