2nd installment of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Reportedly Starts Shooting in August

A film production note was found earlier this week that shows that “Fantastic Beasts 2,” untitled as of now, will begin shooting in August of 2017. The film, like both its predecessor and the Harry Potter series, will be filmed at Leavesden Studios. Additionally, Fantastic Beasts 2 will be filmed on location somewhere in Paris, France, where this installment is to take place. Although the first Fantastic Beasts was set in New York, the film was never shot in the United States, so this is an exciting development!

Emma Watson Answers the Question We All Want to Know

In an interview she was doing for her promotion of Beauty and the Beast, Emma Watson was asked if she’d ever consider playing Hermione Granger again. This question has risen a lot lately, as there has been rumors that Warner Bros. has been trying to secure the rights to a Cursed Child film.


Emma’s response: “Definitely nothing planned at the moment. I wouldn’t want to get anyone’s hopes up… ask me in another 10 [years].”

We can all continue to hope, can’t we?
