The Tales of Beedle the Bard has its first reference in the Harry Potter films, specifically in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. It was 'The Tale of the Three Brothers' through which Harry became acquainted with the three most powerful objects of the Wizarding World. Author, J.K. Rowling transformed this fictional legend into a small collection of tales as a spinoff of the original series to support her charity in 2008.
