'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' gets premiere date

'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' gets premiere date”

It's due out late next year, on the 16th of November 2018.

Chances are, though, unless there's a brief flash-forward of some kind in Fantastic Beasts 2, we won't be seeing the actual Grindelwald vs. Dumbledore showdown until the fifth Beasts movie.

Warner Bros. has now revealed the first look at the film's cast, including Law as Dumbledore, alongside the official title: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Narrative specifics for the follow-up off-shoot are still relatively scant, but it has been confirmed that the sequel will explore the beginnings of Dumbledore and Grindelwald's storied rivalry. 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 risky and divided wizarding world.

Warner Bros. Pictures may have struggled to get fans excited for Justice League, but the studio will have no such problems with upcoming Harry Potter spin-off, which, as of Thursday, finally has a name: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

No word on Jessica Williams' mysterious character yet, and sadly no glimpse of actor Brontis Jodorowsky as alchemist Nicholas Flamel, whom Pottermore announced would be joining the cast last month. The sequel moves the setting from 1920s New York City to Paris, where Grindelwald (now wearing his own face) has made a dramatic escape, and is gathering more followers to his cause.

"The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore [played by Jude Law]", reads the synopses. Most plot details remain under wraps, but Warner Bros. has revealed that we can expect to see Dumbledore enlisting his former student Scamander in an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. 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 unsafe and divided wizarding world.

The film expands the wizarding world, moving from NY to London and on to Paris.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is directed by David Yates, who has done all the Potter films since Order of the Pheonix and is on track to helm all five Fantastic Beasts films.
