New Featurette For FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Focuses on Returning to Hogwarts
Here's a cool little featurette for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald that focuses on Hogwarts. It features J.K. Rowling and several of the other cast members talking about how cool and unbelievable it is for them to be shooting at Hogwarts for this upcoming film.
It's going to be awesome to see Hogwarts come to life in a different era in the Harry Potter universe. I really loved the first Fantastic Beasts film and I'm super excited to see the story continue with this sequel, which looks like it will be even better.
Enjoy the new "Back to Hogwarts" featurette and let us know what you're most excited about regarding this film!
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). 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 (Jude 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, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp. The cast also includes Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was directed by David Yates, from a screenplay written by J.K. Rowling. The film will be released on November 16, 2018.
