Fantastic Beasts set for Leavesden

July 4th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Well, Harry Potter fans, it seems that JK Rowling’s new Potter-verse trilogy Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is coming home…

Yes, Warner Bros have confirmed that the movies will film at Warner Bros Leavesden Studios;  just where the Harry Potter movies came to life.

The announcement was made by UK DCMS Secretary Sajid Javid at a Creative Industries event in London.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To find Them will see its first installment hit cinemas on November 18th, 2016.

The movies will be based on a script written by Rowling, based on her book of the same name and will follow Newt Scamander as he travels the magical world in search of said magical beasts.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
