Though we know that the first film will open in New York, the "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" trilogy will be shot at Leavesden Studios in the UK, where all of the "Harry Potter" films were made:

J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spinoff “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is to shoot at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the U.K., it was confirmed by Warner Bros. Thursday.

U.K. Culture Secretary Sajid Javid announced the news at an event late Wednesday.

The screenplay for the hotly anticipated trilogy was adapted by Rowling, based on the 54-page Hogwarts textbook she wrote in 2001 between publication of the fourth and fifth Potter books.

Set initially in New York about seven decades before the start of the Harry Potter story, the films will follow magizoologist Newt Scamander. They’re not prequels or sequels, but an “extension of the wizarding world,” Rowling said.
