Wizarding World – Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

0

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all-new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™, from Warner Bros. Pictures.

Look for release of this stunning film starting on 16 November, 2018. It will be distributed worldwide in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). Making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped from their custody. Now he is gathering followers, most of them unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, to try to thwart Grindelwald’s plans. Newt Scamander agrees to help, but he is unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested. The testing even applies to truest friends and family, as the wizarding world becomes increasingly divided.

See the ensemble cast of Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, Poppy Corby-Tuech, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp.
