Post David Yates confirms 'Fantastic Beasts' sequel will take place in Paris, France

David Yates teased that the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them would take place in 'another capital city' during the IMAX fan event earlier this month, but now the director confirmed to Empire magazine the second movie will indeed take place in Paris, France. This will be the second movie in the five-part series.

In the December issue of the publication - which also released a beautiful limited-edition interactive cover only sold in the UK - the cover feature ended its article with the tidbit that the second movie and its characters would be heading to Paris.

What we do know is that the already underway sequel will travel to Paris. And it will be as colossal as a Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon. “It’s quite ambitious,” understates Yates, who is set to return alongside the likes of production designer Stuart Craig, cinematographer Philippe Rousselot and costume designer Colleen Atwood. “Stuart is unflappable and indefatigable, but when he saw the script for Beasts 2, he said, ‘Let me just think about it for a minute...’”

Leprechauns in the Louvre? Sea Serpents in the Seine? Anything’s possible. Maybe even a Flobberworm.
Already confirmed to take part in the sequel are Yates is director, producers David Heyman, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram, actors Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, and Zoe Kravitz, and of course screenwriter and producer J.K. Rowling.

The second movie will also see the return of a 40-ish-year-old Albus Dumbledore (yet to be cast), and possibly Gellert Grindelwald, who has been wrecking havoc in Europe at the time of the first movie, before going into hiding.

Please note this is the first time Yates has reportedly confirmed the location for the second Fantastic Beasts movie, despite stories that may have been reported on months ago about the sequel.

The publication did not release much more information than was already published in an earlier article, save this new on-set photo of Yates with Redmayne and Waterston, and a swooping shot of the Thunderbird, which, according to the feature, can create its own weather.

For all those who have heard Redmayne lament over how he was never chosen to play a Weasley character in the Harry Potter series, and admitted he was rejected from taking on the role of Tom Riddle in Chamber of Secrets, the actor commented with this bittersweet revelation.

Eddie Redmayne: “I properly failed and didn’t get a call back. Over the years I always hoped I might be cast as a member of the Weasely family — I’m colour blind but I’ve always been told there’s a tinge of red to my hair — but unfortunately not. A lot of my friends, like Domhnall Gleeson and Rob Pattinson, got their Harry Potter moment, but I never got mine.”
For more on the article, which includes interviews with Yates, Heyman, Waterston, Fogler and Ezra Miller, head right here to order it.
