Director David Yates, who arguably knows the Harry Potter universe better than anyone, save for J.K. Rowling, is currently filming Fantastic Beasts 2. The movie serves as a follow-up to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and looks to change things up a bit. While the first movie takes place in New York City, it looks like the sequel will mostly take place in Paris, France, according to star Carmen Ejogo, who reprises her role as Seraphina.
The actress is currently promoting her new movie, Roman J. Israel, Esq. During a recent interview, she was asked about the upcoming Fantastic Beasts sequel. While she's going to reprise her role as the President of the American Wizard Association, she reveals that she won't have a prominent role in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2. According to her, that has to do with the fact that the movie primarily takes place in Paris.
