PHOTOS: Leavesden Studios Begins Construction on FANTASTIC BEASTS Set

FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM set construction begins at Leavesden Studios in London!

It’s hard to believe, but Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them will start filming soon! The proof is popping up in London, where fans on the Harry Potter Studios Tour discovered new sets popping up at Leavesden Studios!

These photos come from TheGraninger on Twitter, who took some photos of set buildings in the early stages of construction and a massive green screen set-up while in the area.

With a few rare exceptions, Leavesden Studios was the home of all eight Harry Potter movies and its major set pieces. After filming ended, the studio was transformed in a massive, interactive set tour so fans of the series could enjoy everything they loved about the films up close.

Like the other Wizarding World films, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will shoot mainly in Leavesden despite being set in New York City– hence that green screen action, we suppose! The film will hit theaters on November 18, 2016.
