David Heyman, producer of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, says the movie is most comparable of “Harry Potter nad the Goblet of Fire”, the fourth film in the original “Harry Potter” franchise.

Heyman notes that even though “Goblet of Fire” was directed by Mike Newell and the new film is from David Yates (who helmed the final four “Harry Potter” movies) it is Newell’s entry that comes closest to Beasts, reported Entertainment Weekly.

“[Fantastic Beasts has] got the charm of the fourth. 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 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,” Heyman said.
