EW have released another small interview snippet with Fantastic Beasts producer David Heyman in which he relates the first Fantastic Beasts movie to the fourth in the Harry Potter series:
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them producer David Heyman notes that even though Goblet of Fire was directed by Mike Newell and the new film is from David Yates (who helmed the final four Harry Potter movies) it’s Newell’s entry that comes closest to Beasts.
”[Fantastic Beasts has] got the charm of the fourth,” Heyman told EW exclusively. “It’s like the fourth. Mike talked about the fourth as being like an Indian musical — and it’s not that, but it’s got the humor of that film. It has the romantic comedy, that fish-out-of-water humor, that very human, natural character comedy. And now David is always looking for truthful, human moments, it’s never just a gag, he’s grounding [the storytelling moments] in a reality. [Beasts] is very funny, it’s got a big heart, and there’s darkness too.”
What do you make of this news? At least we know something happens between Newt and Porpentina in this one! (or will it be Queenie and Jacob? Credence and Chastity, perhaps?) Let us know what you think!
