Fantastic Beasts 2 Title Announced!

The 'Fantastic Beasts' Sequel Title Has Been Released & 'Harry Potter' Fans Might Need To Sit Down

Dumbledore's wand will be put to the test in the sequel for "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them".

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.

How Newt (Eddie Redmayne) factors in all this still remains to be seen, but it will be interesting how the new storyline will eventually connect to the main Harry Potter narrative and whether it will have an effect on how fans perceive some of the characters that they first met during that era.

Eddie Redmayne returns as our hero Newt Scamander, with Katherine Waterston (Tina), Dan Fogler (Muggle, or no-Maj, Jacob), Alison Sudol (Queenie) and Ezra Miller (Credence - who we thought had died) all reprising their roles.

It reads: "J.K. Rowling wrote the screenplay for the film, which opens in 1927, a few months after Newt helped to unveil and capture the infamous Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald".

The release date of the highly anticipated "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" sequel has been revealed.

True to their initial promise, the Powers That Be have taken a leaf out of Harry Potter's book when it comes to the title format of its Fantastic Beasts prequel saga, and it looks like Potterheads are about to get acquainted with Johnny Depp's Gellert Grindelwald, a malevolent rogue that was once considered to be the most powerful Dark Wizard in the land - second only to Lord Voldemort.

An image of the central cast was also revealed (below), which gives us a first look at 1920s Dumbledore, Maledictus, Leta Lestrange and Theseus Scamander. However, 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.

"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2" will be released on November 16, 2018. However, he'll need to the help of his former student, Newt.

David Yates is directing the follow-up to last year's box office hit, which is again written by JK Rowling.
