The Fantastic Beasts sequel is now returning to Hogwarts and way before Harry Potter entered its halls. A new featurette centers on the return to Hogwarts and reveals that the location used for Hogwarts exterior for the Harry Potter films is the same one that they are using for Fantastic Beasts. Cool, right?
Now, what might not make sense is how Hogwarts fits into the new installment of the series since the sequel will mostly take place in Paris. Although, since young Dumbledore is set to be a vital part of the film it makes sense for the story to show Newt’s time at Hogwarts and his friendship with Professor Dumbledore.

Since the main villain of the sequel will be the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, it’s important to show the early connection between Grindelwald and Dumbledore and how that connection has changed over the years. In addition, Dumbledore needs Newt’s help in tracking down Grindelwald and ending his plans to rule over wizards and muggles.
It could be possible that Hogwarts and other wizarding schools could be featured again in future Fantastic Beasts films since J.K Rowling has three other films still set to come out in the series.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will magically appear in theaters November 16, 2018.
