Excitement is so high for the opening of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” there is already chatter about the sequel.

The film hits theaters nationwide on November 18 but that hasn’t stopped speculation about the next one.

“Fantastic Beasts” is part of the “Harry Potter” cannon and follows the adventures of writer Newt Scamander (Played by Eddie Redmayne), who is the finder of magical creatures.

Potter and his Hogwart friends later study a book Newt has written.

“Potter” author Rowling wrote the new film and corrected a claim about the “Fantastic Beasts” sequel.

A post on the Snitch Seeker site said the storyline in the sequel (scheduled to be out in November 2018) will begin “almost immediately after the first, or within weeks at most after the premiere installment.”

Not so, according to Rowling.

“This isn’t correct, I’m afraid,” she tweeted. “The sequel doesn’t begin days after first movie ends (although we do go to Paris.)”

Rowling announced in October that there will be five films in the “Fantastic Beasts” series.
