Everything We Know About ‘Fantastic Beasts 2’ So Far! Warner Bros. / Wizarding World

If you have a heart and soul, then surely you’re a Harry Potter fan, right?


That sorted, we’ve got all the latest info on the second Fantastic Beasts film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald. 

The official Wizarding World site, Pottermore, has let us all in on what we can expect from the next movie.

"Straight away the title says that Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) will be a big focus in the second film, after having been unmasked in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Clearly his capture by MACUSA won’t last for very long, and Grindelwald is still intent on exposing the wizarding community to the non-magical world.

"So, what will he do next? As the title suggests, not nice things. Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers to his cause. What many of his new devotees don’t suspect is that his true intention is to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

"We know from the Harry Potter books that Grindelwald’s ascent represented a dark time for the wizarding world – much like the rise of Lord Voldemort. So, things are about to get serious.

Jude Law will be playing a young Albus Dumbledore


"Dumbledore will ask his former student Newt for his help, and the two do seem to have a history: Dumbledore argued against Newt’s expulsion from Hogwarts years earlier. And in the latest edition of the textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a new foreword from Newt says that Dumbledore was ‘more than a school teacher to me’.”

Grindelwald has the Elder Wand


"In this new photo, Grindelwald is seen holding the familiar, textured wand we recognise from the Harry Potter films. From the books, we know that Grindelwald stole the most powerful wand in the wizarding world from the wandmaker Gregorovitch quite early on in his reign of terror.

"Eagle-eyed fans may also have noted this close-up of Dumbledore’s wand next to the Elder Wand. All things come to those who wait, Albus…"


This film will take place right after the first one, in 1927, a few months after Newt set out on his New York adventure. 


Also, Credence is ALIVE!

"Credence (Ezra Miller) also returns, in a ‘mysterious way’. Growing up with fanatical Mary Lou meant that Credence developed an Obscurus – a dark, uncontrollable force which occurs when a witch or wizard represses their powers. When we last saw Credence, he appeared to have been killed within his own Obscurus form, so how did he survive?

"Since most Obscurials don’t survive past the age of 10, Credence could prove to be a very powerful wizard indeed. In the new photo released today, he is sitting quite intimately with Claudia Kim’s unnamed character. More on her later…"
