Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them director David Yates first teased the sequel's setting during a Warner Bros. event last month. Now, he's finally made the big reveal! Speaking with Empire magazine (via Hypable), Yates states the movie is heading to Paris, France.

“It’s quite ambitious,” the director explained, “[Production designer Stuart Craig] is unflappable and indefatigable, but when he saw the script for Beasts 2, he said, ‘Let me just think about it for a minute.'” The sequel is set for a Nov. 2018 premiere, with J.K. Rowling returning as screenwriter. The famed author recently revealed Fantastic Beats will be a franchise that spans five movies, so get ready for even more magical moments.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, starring Eddie Redmayne Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler and Alison Sudol, will hit theaters on Nov. 18. Feed your anticipation even more by reading our complete guide to the film and listen to Fuse's Back of the Class podcast talk about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child below:
