CONFIRMED: Fantastic Beasts To Be Filmed In Leavesden

We may have reported it months ago, but today it was finally confirmed by Sajid Javid, UK Secretary of State for Culture, Media, Sports & Equalities, that Warner Bros will indeed be shooting Fantastic Beasts in their Leavesden Studios in London.

The announcement was made today at the Create Uk event in London's Facebook headquarters.

This is most likely to mean that the first movie in the trilogy will start just as Newt leaves Hogwarts and goes to work in the Ministry of Magic, before being requested to write Fantastic Beasts.

Movie To Feature English & American Wizards

Warner Bros. Entertainment U.K., Ireland and Spain president Josh Berger today revealed in an interview that the first 'Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them' movie is to feature "U.S and British wizards".

Berger on Wednesday also touted the planned Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, based on the J.K. Rowling book of the same name. The film is set to be released in Nov. 2016 and is expected to be followed by further movies. Fantastic Beasts is set in 1920s New York and features U.S. and British wizards, he told his audience, but didn't discuss the status of the script.


This is most likely to mean that the first in the trilogy starts out in the U.K with Newt either fresh from Hogwarts or already working in the Ministry of Magic and getting offered the chance to write the Fantastic Beasts book.

From there, he would travel to America for the first leg of his tour, with the rest of the world to come in subsequent films.

Rumour - Alfonso Cuarón In Talks To Direct *UPDATED*

According to reports today, Alfonso Cuarón, who directed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, is "deep in talks" to direct the first Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them movie.



UPDATE 25/05: The Global Post is today reporting that Cuarón is not in talks to direct Fantastic Beasts, or any other movie in the near future.

'U.S. media reported in recent days the possibility that Cuaron might direct the Harry Potter spinoff saga "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," which is currently in the pre-production phase.

"It was a very beautiful experience for me. I have a lot of love for that universe and I tremendously admire J.K. Rowling, but today, for the present, projects based around lots of visual effects don't attract me. I'm coming out of a five-year process of doing visual effects and now I sort of want to clean my palate of that a little bit," the director said.'

2014 Quidditch World Cup - New Magical Creatures

If you're a member of Pottermore, you may have noticed that JK Rowling has been writing "live coverage" reports of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup (as Ginny Potter for the Daily Prophet, with quotes from Magizoologist Rolf Scamander, Newt's grandson).

If you've signed in, you can go straight to this page to read the full Daily Prophet entry!

In it, we find out about four new (to us!) magical creatures from around the world, which are:


Dukuwaqa - A shapeshifter that can transform from shark to man. It lives in warm ocean & is a native of Fiji.

Selma - A gigantic lake serpent that devours both human flesh and fish. It resides in the icy, freshwater lakes of Norway.

Curupiras - Red-haired, forest-dwelling dwarves whose feet point backwards & who protect fellow creatures whom they feel are under threat from humans. Native of Brazil.

Sasabonsans - Nigerian, vampiric, spindle-legged creatures.
