'Fantastic Beasts' sequel begins filming, new characters and plot revealed

03 Juillet 2017

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 started filming today, and to commemorate the occasion, Warner Bros. has released details about the film's plot, cast, and locations.

As yet untitled, Eddie Redmayne returns as the magizoologist Newt Scamander, alongside his stateside compatriots, sister act Tina and Queenie Goldstein (Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol). Eddie Redmayne will reprise his leading role as Newt Scamander, while Johnny Depp will return as Gellert Grindelwald.

Kevin Guthrie as Abernathy, also known as Tina and Queenie's boss at MACUSA (Magical Congress of the USA).

The movie will open in 1927, a few months after Newt helped to capture Grindelwald.

However, the logline reads: "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". This time, it's down to his former friend Albus Dumbledore to stop him, but with the help of former student Scamander. But the effort to stop Grindelwald will "test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly unsafe and divided wizarding world", Warner Bros. said.

Danone cède Stonyfield à Lactalis pour 875 millions de dollars
Le groupe d'agroalimentaire Danone a annoncé lundi avoir conclu un accord avec le fromager Lactalis en vue de lui vendre Stonyfield, une de ses filiales américaines, pour un prix de 875 millions de dollars.

We will see transitions from NY to London to Paris, reportedly with "surprising nods to the existing Potter universe".

Pottermore has magicked up a batch of info for the Fantastic Beasts sequel and, first things first, let's settle down with the plot.

Zoe Kravitz will play new character Leta Lestrange, a fleeting glimpse of whom appeared in the first film, and Claudia Kim will also star as a young woman introduced in the film as an attraction at a wizarding circus.

War And Peace actor and Burberry model Turner, previously said to be in talks for the role, will play Theseus Scamander, a war hero who is Newt's older brother. Five films in all in the series are planned.

The film is being shot at Warner Bros.' Studios Leavesden in the United Kingdom, home of all the Harry Potter films so far, and is slated for release on November 16 2018. Author #JKRowling only briefly hinted at their relationship in her final Potter book, but since she's also handling writing duties on Fantastic Beasts 2, expect her to delve a little deeper for the silver screen. Given the complex relationship between Dumbledore and Grindelwald - as well as their romantic entanglement - fans of the Potterverse can't wait to see the duo's story play out in the future films.
