Cast & Plot Of Fantastic Beasts 2 Announced!
Warner Bros. has announced new cast members and the official plot synopsis for the sequel to last year's Harry Potter prequel, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. Actor Callum Turner is also set to play Theseus Scamander, Newt Scamander’s older brother who is a Ministry of Magic Auror and a war hero, and Zoe Kravitz will return to play Leta Lestrange, who appeared only as a moving photograph in Newt Scamander’s workshop in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Also, Credence, played by Ezra Miller, will return in a “mysterious way" and, as previously announced, Jude Law will play the young Albus Dumbledore, while Gellert Grindelwald will again be played by Johnny Depp.
According to a press release, the sequel takes place in Paris and "opens in 1927, a few months after Newt helped to unveil and capture the infamous Dark Wizard Gellert Grindelwald. However, as he promised he would, Grindelwald has made a dramatic escape and has been 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, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world."
The untitled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel is directed by David Yates, written by J.K. Rowling, and stars Eddie Redmayne, Dan Fogler, Kathrine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Zoe Kravitz, and Ezra Miller with Jude Law, and Johnny Depp. In 1927, Grindelwald has made a dramatic escape and the only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore. The film will be released in theaters on Nov. 16, 2018.
