And here's where to find it: At a global event today for Warner Bros.' upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, author and screenwriter J.K. Rowling told fans that the new Harry Potter spinoff series will span five (yes, FIVE) feature films.

The news came as part of a surprise appearance by Rowling via satellite as part of A Return to J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World, a global event simulcast with live activations in Hollywood, New York, London, Mexico City, Sao Paolo and Rome.

The first 10 minutes of Fantastic Beasts were shown, along with an all-new featurette. Cast members Colin Farrell and Jon Voight were in attendance in Hollywood, while in London Rowling joined director David Yates, producer David Heyman, and cast members Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, and Dan Fogler.
