Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 will leave New York City behind and take the story to Paris, France.
The setting change was revealed by Empire:
“What we do know is that the already-underway sequel will travel to Paris,” the magazine states.
Digital Spy originally discovered that the sequel was changing destination. And it’s now confirmed to be in Paris.
“We next see Newt in another big capital city. It’s not going to be New York. It’s somewhere else entirely. [J.K. Rowling] has actually written the script and it’s just as magical and just as marvellous as the first one – but very different.” said Yates.
Yates is also promising an “ambitious” sequel, and earlier this week, Johnny Depp signed up for the follow-up film.
Recently, JK Rowling confirmed that there will be as many as five films in the Fantastic Beasts series, although it’s unclear as to how many Depp’s character will appear in.
The first Fantastic Beasts movie hits theaters on November 18 and you can see the trailer below:
