These images were taken last month & thanks to Kitty, we know that staff at Leavesden Studios have confirmed this is the Fantastic Beasts set.
@FBAWTFTmovie It is, I was there last week and an employee not only confirmed this but said @jk_rowling had been inspecting it recently. — Kitty Thornton (@ThorntonKitty) July 15, 2015
Production is well under way on the first movie, with casting almost complete and crew currently working on all aspects of the movie.
Filming is due to being next month.
UPDATE: We visited Warner Bros Studio Tour today, July 20th, and took lots more photos of the ongoing construction. Take a look:
Also, thanks to Paul, we may now know what some of the set is:
@fbawtftmovie A friend of mine who is working on the FB set at Leavesden told me they were building an entire NYC street. This could be it.
