Each of the five movies in the Potterverse film series, kicked off by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, will focus on a different city, taking Newt Scamander from New York City to Paris in The Crimes of Grindelwald. Though that leaves the setting of two films a mystery, the series’ conclusion has to take everyone back to London, right?

Director David Yates confirmed in an Entertainment Weekly interview published Tuesday that each Fantastic Beasts film will focus on a different city. “This is a global story, ultimately,” Yates said. “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.”

The first Fantastic Beasts explored the American wizarding world in New York City, and even though Pottermore confirmed that The Crimes of Grindelwald will feature New York and London to some extent, the primary setting will be Paris.

For all we know, the London scenes could simply be Jude Law’s Albus Dumbledore recruiting Newt Scamander at his previously-teased book launch party at Flourish & Blotts before they go to France to thwart Grindelwald.

Yates confirmed he already knows the setting of the third film, straight from Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling — but Warner Bros. isn’t ready to announce that just yet.

Rowling previously told Variety that the five-movie series would span 19 years, concluding in 1945, presumably with the final confrontation between Dumbledore and Grindelwald in which the former took the Elder Wand. That date also happens to coincide with the downfall of Nazi Germany.

So the fifth movie will almost certainly end somewhere in Germany, where their famous duel took place, but considering how important London has been to the greater Potterverse, it’s all but certain that Fantastic Beasts 5 will take place mostly in London.

That leaves at least two films a total mystery, but chances are high that the series will stick to Europe, because historically, we know that Grindelwald stuck to the United States and Europe — especially Germany — for his campaign. That means we’ll probably see a movie set in Berlin, but beyond that, we can’t be sure.

Who sends Newt a postcard from Paris?

But next up: We’ll see Newt Scamander journey to Paris.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald* will be released November 16, 2018.

We’re all in the Long Night while waiting on Game of Thrones Season 8. Now, possibly out of desperation, one fan has cooked up a horribly tragic theory about how Jon Snow will have to become the Night King to stop his undead army. If true, this would reshape everything we know about the Night King, Azor Ahai, and how the series will end.

Stranger Things Season 3 is set to release some time next summer. That’s a long time to wait before we can finally head back to 1980s Hawkins, Indiana, but in the meantime, a new interview with David Harbour (Jim Hopper on the Netflix series) is offering fans a taste of what’s to come when the Stranger Things Season 3 release date finally arrives.

This is some multi-reality brain magic shit.” Emma Stone’s words in the new trailer for Maniac, an upcoming Netflix original series, seem to do a pretty good job of encapsulating the plot. Created by Patrick Somerville (The Leftovers), directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (It, True Detective Season 1), and starring Stone, Jonah Hill, Sally Field, and Justin Theroux, Maniac looks like a cross between Inception and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In other words, it looks awesome.

The upcoming live-action Star Wars show will cost a whole bunch of Credits — or perhaps a whole bunch of Gold Dragons. The reported budget for Jon Favreau’s 10-episode series is $100 million, or about $10 million per episode. That puts the show on par with Game of Thrones, HBO’s tremendously expensive (and popular) fantasy series.

David Tennant is once again playing a doctor, but this time, he’s not traveling through time and space in a big blue box. Now, he’s a scientist bringing mechs to a gunfight in the new Rooster Teeth animated series gen:LOCK. A new teaser trailer for the series prominently features Tennant voicing his new character Dr. “Doc” Rufus Weller for the first time.
