BUZZ News Shorts: Fantastic Beasts, Second Chance, Hateful Eight & More


••• David Heyman has told Entertainment Weekly that Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them will be most similar to Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire in terms of tone (which is slightly surprising as it’s being directed by David Yates who directed the last four Harry Potter films, while Goblet was directed by Mike Newell). “[Fantastic Beasts has] got the charm of the fourth,” says Heyman. “It’s like the fourth. Mike talked about the fourth as being like an Indian musical — and it’s not that, but it’s got the humour of of that film. It has the romantic comedy, that fish-out-of-water humour, that very human, natural character comedy. And now David [Yates] is always looking for truthful, human moments. It’s never just a gag; he’s grounding [the storytelling moments] in a reality. [Beasts] is very funny, it’s got a big heart, and there’s darkness too.”
