“I don’t think I’m dreaming”
As Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ends its theatrical run, all eyes are looking at the next instalment in the popular wizarding franchise. Fantastic Beasts 2 is set to be the first of four sequels and early details are starting to emerge on the films production schedule.
A recently updated post on casting site myentertainmentworld.com shows that Fantastic Beasts 2 starts filming this August in a presently undiscloused location in the UK as well as in Paris, France.
The story information on the post is the same brief summary listed for the first film, which will change as the Fantastic Beats 2 moves closer to pre-production later this year. The film is expected to take place in England and feature the Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry, the same setting as the Harry Potter series of movies.
Fantastic Beasts 2 will be directed by David Yates from a script written by Harry Potter creator J.K Rowling and stars Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Zoë Kravitz (Leta Lestrange) and Johnny Depp (Gellert Grindelwald). The film releases on November 16th 2018.
