Next Harry Potter Prequel Most Like ‘Goblet of Fire’

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them producer Heyman admits that even though Goblet of Fire was directed by Mike Newell and the new film is from David Yates, it’s Newell’s film that comes closest to Beasts.

”[Fantastic Beasts has] got the charm of the fourth,” Heyman told EW. “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 humor of that film.”

“It has the romantic comedy, that fish-out-of-water humor, that very human, natural character comedy,” Heyman added. “And now David 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.”
