"We delve deeper into [J.K. Rowling's] wizarding world - we're in Paris, we're in London and NY - the world is expanding", Heyman says.

You already know the first film, 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, was set in NY.

Proving that the ongoing Harry Potter prequel saga will be a globe-trotting affair, Warner Bros. has confirmed that each of the five Fantastic Beasts movies will take place in a different city.

The sequel's storyline, according to the studio, picks up where the original Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them left off, with Paris circa 1927 as the backdrop. And you're probably aware the second title, The Crimes of Grindelwald, is largely set in Paris.

"Yes. Jo's already told us where the next one is taking place". It's very exciting. This is a global story, ultimately.

Germany has already been earmarked as a possible candidate, given J.K. Rowling's magical series unfurls in the early 1920s and therefore in between the two World Wars. "We took all we've learned from one and just expanded that and created a richer, deeper and more thrilling film which I'm excited to be a part of". In anticipation of the Fantastic Beasts movies, for which Rowling serves as screenwriter, Rowling prepared Harry Potter fans for a global expansion with new entries on Pottermore. To see the wizarding world version of Japan would be awesome, so let's hope for that.

So where will the Fantastic Beasts movies go next? And it would be incredibly cool to see the East Asian wizarding community, and what mythical legends the storytelling would draw on. However, the new addition to the cast include Jude Law, playing a rather dashing Albus Dumbledore, Johnny Depp who will be playing Gellert Grindelwald and Poppy Corby-Tuech who'll be portraying Vinda Rosier. Will we have to witness the horrors of Nurmengard, Grindlewald's prison that some have speculated has its roots in the German city of Nuremberg?

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens in theaters November 16.
