The sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is scheduled to hit theaters Nov. 16, 2018.
The film picks up months after the events of Fantastic Beasts with Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) having escaped and “gathering more followers to his cause — elevating wizards above all non-magical beings. The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore. But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander. The adventure reunites Newt with Tina (Katherine Waterston), Queenie (Alison Sudol) and Jacob (Dan Fogler), but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world.”
The film sees the return of Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Jude Law, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz (who appeared in a photo in Fantastic Beasts as a woman from Newt’s past) along with Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Ingvar Sigurdsson, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, and Kevin Guthrie.
David Yates is returning to direct the sequel from a script written by J.K. Rowling. Stay tuned, kids…
