Confirmed: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” to film at Leavesden!
Although previous information released about the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trilogy has indicated that it will feature US wizards, the films will be filmed in the UK.
According to Digital Spy, Warner Bros. confirmed that the films will be shot at the same place as the Harry Potter films, Leavesden Studios. This news makes sense, considering the statement made by Josh Berger last month regarding the purchase of the studio by Warner Bros. The trilogy is scheduled for a November 2016 release and will be the screenplay debut for J.K. Rowling.
Let’s hope that the release of this bit of news will be followed by casting information! Fans of the franchise have been discussing whom they think would best fit the role of Magizoologist Newt Scamander all over the web since the announcement was made late last year, including producer David Heyman.
