“As with the Harry Potter books, it is all mapped out,” Rowling stated to the Entertainment Weekly, “In fact, when we announced the five films, I talked about that. It’s always possible that some details will change along the way, but the arc of the story is there.”
Rowling also added,
“It’s been an amazing opportunity to tell parts of the backstory that never made it into the original books. I’m thinking particularly of one character that I think fans will be surprised to meet in this movie. While the first two movies almost exclusively take place in Europe, Rowling says she’s excited to explore other areas around the globe in the coming movies. It’s far too early to spoil anything,” Rowling explained, “What I can say is that we’ll go to at least one new city in the next film, possibly two, and I’m keen to move outside Europe and North America. But you’ll just have to wait and see.”
So, are you excited to see the younger version of McGonagall in the movie Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald, which is going to be released on November 16, 2018.
