The franchise of “Fantastic Beasts” will have a different set location for each film. Warner Bros.

It looks like the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise is going to be a worldwide romp, since each movie will take place in a different city.

This is what director David Yates revealed during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Yes,” Yates said. “Jo’s [Rowling] already told us where the next one is taking place. It’s very exciting. This is a global story, ultimately. And given that there’s a global audience for this, it’s all the more delightful to take the story to different parts of the world.”

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” was set in New York, while the sequel, “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” will take place in Paris. Naturally, Yates refused to divulge where the third movie will take place. But one thing’s for sure – avid fans are eager to learn more about the exotic locations the franchise will explore.

Meanwhile, lead star Eddie Redmayne, who plays magizoologist Newt Scamander, earlier said that some of the well-loved creatures from the first film will be included in the sequel as well. Picket, the plant-like Bowtruckle that Newt always kept in his pocket and the Niffler, the black rodent-like creature who cannot resist shiny and sparkly objects, will definitely be back.

However, the franchise has a couple more surprises up its sleeves. “There’s a Chinese creature that’s formidable,” Redmayne shared.

But as interesting as these creatures might be, producer David Heyman said they won’t be the main focus.

“There are as many beasts in the film as in the first,” said Heyman. “But the main driver in the first film was finding the beasts. That’s not the driver in this film, it’s not a central part of the plot. But beasts feature in the film and feature strongly.”

The highlight of the sequel will most likely be the battle between Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) and his former friend, Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).

In a photo posted on the film’s official Twitter account, two wands are seen. One is immediately recognizable as the Elder Wand - one of the Deathly Hallows - that was used by Dumbledore prior to his death.

The ownership of the second wand remains a mystery, but it might belong to Grindelwald. Fans seem to believe so as one commented: “I bet this is Grindelwald’s wand. I love that it’s the inverted version of Dumbledore’s.”

“Well, technically at this point in the story, Grindelwald would have the elder wand. So the left one is the wand of elder and the right one is probably what Dumbledore used at that point,” another fan weighed in.

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” will be released on Nov. 16, 2018.
