fantastic beasts the crimes of grindelwald

Whip out your wands: the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel has a title and a plot synopsis.

Warner Bros. revealed the Harry Potter prequel sequel (that’s going to get confusing) title as Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, along with the first story details. The film will follow the events of the first Fantastic Beasts, which found the evil wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Colin Farrell before being revealed as a bleach-blonde Johnny Depp) captured thanks to Newt Scamander’s (Eddie Redmayne) efforts. And the new title is not the only magic that Warner Bros. has in store for us: the announcement of the title comes in the form of a video teaser masquerading as a magical moving picture of the cast.

fantastic beasts 2 cast

Joining the hunt for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is former Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams, as well as a bevy of other new and familiar characters from Harry Potter lore. One of those familiar characters: the renowned Nicolas Flamel, whose Philosopher/Sorcerer’s Stone formed the basis for the first Harry Potter book and movie. Now we’ll get to see him as a young and strapping wizard, and hopefully better for the wear than Johnny Depp‘s evil Grindelwald, whose terrorizing presence will be even bigger in the Fantastic Beasts sequel.

Pottermore has dropped a bunch of new information about the Fantastic Beasts 2 cast and characters, as well as a rudimentary synopsis of the film.

Reactions to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them felt a little muted last year, but that didn’t stop the first Harry Potter spin-off from making $814 million worldwide. The ambitious plans to make four sequels and further bridge the gap between the first movie the rest of the Potter series has continued apace, with J.K. Rowling penning the sequel for returning director David Yates, who has already cast Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore in the sequel.

Now, another English actor has joined the cast, furthering the franchise’s mission to one day employ every single actor in the United Kingdom: Green Room star Callum Turner.
