Fantastic Beasts fans, we finally have a reason to get excited - production for the third instalment is officially set to start in spring 2020.

There's also some exciting news about the setting. As with the previous two films, Fantastic Beasts 3 will be set in an entirely new country - and in fact a different wizarding world altogether.
According to Deadline, this time Newt and co will be heading to sunny Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The city is home to new wonder of the world, Christ the Redeemer, the world-famous Copacabana beach, sprawling favelas and annual Rio carnival - no doubt making it an amazing setting for all of the wizarding action.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them took place in New York while The Crimes of Grindelwald took place in Paris.
Eddie Redmayne will be reprising his role as Newt Scamander, Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore and Ezra Miller as Aurelius Dumbledore.
