Eventually she shared the news and it turns out that our hero, Newt Scamander, will find himself in New York. His plans will originally only consist of staying in the bustling 1920′s city for a couple hours, but he’ll land up staying there for the duration of the first film.

So far, we know that the movie will centre around Newt Scamander, the highly regarded author of the wizarding text book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and will take place in 1920′s New York.
J.K. Rowling herself is writing the screenplays of the three-film Harry Potter spinoff, and David Yates will be directing.
