Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them 2 to be set in Paris

The sequel to the forthcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them will be set in Paris, rather than New York,

The film's director, David Yates, confirmed the location move after teasing it in a previous interview. At the time, he said “We next see Newt in another big capital city. It’s not going to be New York. It’s somewhere else entirely. [JK Rowling] has actually written the script and it’s just as magical and just as marvelous as the first one – but very different.”

Although Yates told Empire magazine the new location will be the French capital, it remains unclear exactly when the sequel will be set or how Paris fits into the story.

The first Fantastic Beasts film is released on November 18th.
