Fantastic Beasts 2 News - Illustrated Fantastic Beasts book

The second movie still doesn't have a title. J.K. Rowling Tweeted, that it will be revealed
soon, until then I just call it Fantastic Beast 2. The original Twitter account of the movie
recently released two pictures teasing the plot of the film.

Left: @FantasticBeasts: A newly published author must have a book launch party. 
Newt Scamander has been busy. - The image up left shows the book's launch event 
date, Saturday, March 19, 1927, in ties with Obscurus Books (the publisher), and 
Flourish & Blotts in Diagon Alley - it seems like fans will see Diagon Alley (x)
Right: @FantasticBeasts: The only known maker of the Philosopher's Stone.

Next Fantastic Beasts film reveals new characters – including Nicolas Flamel
We suspect you may recognise a few of the names. (Pottermore article)

"I think the pleasure of these Fantastic Beasts films is that they'll work on their 
own terms. You don't need to know Harry Potter to enjoy them, but if you do, 
you have another layer, another level to enjoy," David Heyman told Digital Spy
 "I'm very excited as more nuggets drop and audiences respond. Fans will be 
incredibly excited. This next film is different to the first, but each film will 
march to its own beat and have its own tone. I don't yet know if the series 
will get darker, although all of them will be fun and entertaining."(via)

Highgate Cemetery was closed for filming for over a fortnight in October
Ms Causer said: “Our clues were Warner Bros and Triton Films, and the addition 
of a black column by the Egyptian Avenue and the sign, ‘Le Prevost de Basserode’, 
added above one of the vaults in the Circle of Lebanon. “My son thinks it must be 
Fantastic Beasts. The new one is set partly in France, so it makes sense.” (via)

Update Nov 12: Another location, that became a film set Saturday

 @NMurrayBeale Tweeted: My street is a film set today. Circa 1930 curtains
and spotlights upstairs. Waiting for #Eddie & #Johnny...
Later she added: Just a regular Sat night watching #EddieRedmayne pace 
elegantly up & down my street. It’s the green door!!!

More from the London filming this weekend.

In her Collider interview Carmen Ejogo admitted she doesn't expect her role to be
as prominent in the second movie as it was int he first installment, Fantastic Beasts
and Where to Find Them, and that she will return to the UK next week to continue
shooting more scenes for the still-unnamed feature, out next November. (via)

Jessica Williams on how did she get involved in FB2: 
"I hung out with J.K. [Rowling], and she had reached out to me 
a couple of days after we met. She sent me these emails about 
this really amazing character that she had been working on. 
That’s pretty much how it all got started. It’s really exciting. 
I leave next Friday for London, so I’m really 
excited about this. It’s like my wildest dream."
