Fantastic Beasts Filming Pushed Back To Late 2015

Thanks to RadioTimes, we have some more new information regarding Fantastic Beasts - this time that filming has been pushed back to late 2015:

Pre-production is now well under way with plans to begin filming in late 2015 and – according to David Heyman, producer – there's a "very, very special" script from Rowling. 
Speaking to promote his new film, Paddington, Heyman told RadioTimes.com, "a lot of Fantastic Beasts will be filmed in London, England and the UK. Rowling has written the script and we're working on it but it's a little way off." 
He went on to describe the author and screenwriter as having "an incredibly vivid and wonderful imagination," adding, "she has written something very, very special and I'm very excited about it. But it's too early to tell you what it will be."

Nifflers To Appear In Fantastic Beasts?

Thanks to IGN we have another small interview with David Heyman about Fantastic Beasts! 

Click Here To Watch The Video!

Here's what he had to say: 

Harry Potter producer David Heyman has been doing the publicity rounds for his new film Paddington, but he’s also busy prepping Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

So once we’d finished chatting with Heyman about the bear from darkest Peru, we asked why he was returning to the Potter universe…
“Because Jo Rowling has written a script that’s sublime” he explained. “It’s funny, it’s vivid, it’s exciting. It’s filled with all the hallmarks of her incredible imagination.”
As for why Rowling is writing the film having never scripted a previous Potter feature, Heyman said “I don’t know – ask her. She wrote the books on those so she probably didn’t feel the need. With this there was a slim volume which is more like an Encycolpedia than it is anything else... so she decided to write the script and she’s done a brilliant job. “
Finally, we asked Heyman to pick his favourite Fantastic Beast: “I like the Niffler” he explained. “Actually I like an awful lot of them. I don’t think there will be room in the film for all of them but we’ll find room for a few.”
David Yates – who directed the final four Potter features – will helm Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, with the film due to hit in late 2016. 


Considering the Warner Bros Studio Tour has started selling small Niffler toys, it seems highly likely that they'll be making an appearance!

Casting To Begin Next Year

I know you’ve said before it’s helped you in your career to have lived in America and here (UK). So how does it feel to be going back to the world of Potter that’s going to be set in New York for Fantastic Beasts?
Anything that Jo creates is exciting to be a part of. She has such an incredible imagination. It’s a privilege to have worked with her on the eight Potter films and to be working with her again on this. She’s written a wonderful script. I’m very, very excited.

Are you looking to start casting soon for Newt?
I think we’ll probably start up sometime next year.

How do you feel to have started this new trend – I think it was you – with Potter splitting the final chapter into two? It’s now kind of the norm.
That was so not a calculated decision. It was really borne purely out of creative imperative. I think if we’d done one film, it’d have been four-five hours long. As much as people’s attention is much … people love Potter – I think they would have struggled, and we’d have had to cut out too much to make it work. 

So, I know people will find that hard to believe but I promise you it was born out of creative imperative. Actually it wasn’t me who had the idea. Someone else had the idea: Lionel Wigram, who is producing Fantastic Beasts with me. And my initial reaction was no. He said, “No, David. How are we going to do it?” And I reread the books, and Steve Kloves, the screenwriter, we discussed it. It became clear it was the only way to tell the story that we wanted to tell in the way that we wanted to tell it. I don’t know whether all the others are borne out of a similar creative imperative. Maybe. But that was the source of ours.


Thanks to SnitchSeeker for the transcript!

Hogwarts In The Snow at WB Studio Tour

Warner Bros Studio Tour London will be bringing back it's Hogwarts In The Snow event this winter with another chance for you to see the magic happen.

It's been many years since Newt Scamander enjoyed the delights of being resident at Hogwarts for Christmas time, but this is just another magnificent look into his world, which is what we love here at FantasticBeastsMovie.Net!

The most magical snowfall of the season will return to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter this year as the breathtaking Hogwarts castle model is covered in a blanket of snow. Visitors will get the chance to see the castle’s festive makeover – as well as the iconic Great Hall decorated for Christmas – from Friday 14th November to Sunday 1st February.

For the first time at the Studio Tour, the film series’ Special Effects Department will use coloured lights and a special vapour that flickers and dances to create ‘fire’ in the Great Hall and Gryffindor common room fireplaces. Meanwhile, real flames will lick the plum puddings on display in the Great Hall.

Most of the snow used on the Hogwarts castle model throughout the Harry Potter film series was a mixture of paper and dendritic salt. It was used because it clumps like snow and even squeaks when walked on. During filming, a member of the crew climbed aboard an elevated work platform and sprinkled the mixture onto the model by hand with a sieve – like dusting sugar onto a cake. The same process will be used at the Studio Tour this November and samples of the different types of snow used in the film series will be on display.

The Great Hall will be decorated with the original props seen during the Christmas feast in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Eight Christmas trees will line the iconic set and two long dining tables will be dressed as they were for seasonal feasts with prop versions of turkeys, hams, fruit, vegetables and snow cakes (while the food featured in the feasts throughout the early films was real, the Set Decoration Department later used artificial food created from powder and resin).

Visitors will see the hand-knitted jumpers that Molly Weasley gave Ron and Harry for Christmas in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Other costumes on display will include one of the first Christmas presents Harry ever received at Hogwarts, his Invisibility Cloak, and the dressLuna Lovegood wore to the Slug Club Christmas party in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

The event runs from Friday 14th November to Sunday 1st February and tickets can be bought by clicking this link.

Like all events at WB Studio Tour, this one is not to be missed!

Thanks to Mugglenet for the press release.
