In interview to the Entertainment Weekly, David Yates revealed that each movie of the Fantastic Beasts franchise will be set in a different city. “Jo’s 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.”, said the director.
