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.
