The upcoming sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to find Them has been officially titled Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Gridelwald. The film is set to arrive November 16, 2018, exactly a year from today. The film will see Jude Law’s Dumbeldore for the first time and the battle against Grindelwald. A full official synopsis is below.
“At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (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 (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,ng the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.”
