The release is getting closer and now you can finally get a proper look at Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
The sequel to 2016’s Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald picks up where the first film left off.
At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
The film is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. It is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released in UK cinemas on 16th November 2018 in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures.
