Warner Bros stated the latest film in the series, which takes place in the Harry Potter universe will include references to J.K. Rowling’s original stories
The second film Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them of what is due to be a five-film series will contain “surprising nods” to J.K. Rowling’s original seven Harry Potter books that will “delight fans of the books and film series”.
The film, which will expand on the world of witches and wizards created by J.K. Rowling, will take place in London and Paris.
”J.K. Rowling wrote the screenplay for the film, which opens in 1927, a few months after Newt helped to unveil and capture the infamous dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald,” read a statement from Warner Bros.
“The adventure reunites Newt with Tina, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world.” Warner Bros said, outlining the plot.
