Plot details for the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have been revealed by Warner Bros. as principal photography is set to begin!
The film will pick up with Johnny Depp‘s Grindelwald 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 (Jude Law). 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.”
In addition to Eddie Redmayne, Zoe Kravitz, and more, Ezra Miller will also return “whose fate was unknown at the end of the first film” and who “makes a mysterious return.”
The sequel will hit theaters on November 16, 2018.
