Wands at the ready!

Early this morning, the Official Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them twitter account announced the title of the second film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The film is set to be released in exactly ONE YEAR (I’m kind of excited, if you couldn’t tell) from today.


Fans were treated to a sneak peak at the cast for the next film, including some familiar faces (Jacob, Queenie, Newt and Tina) as well as some new faces and characters who were briefly mentioned in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, such as Newt’s older brother, Theseus, and Leta Lestrange, a former close friend of Newt’s.

Pottermore has also not only provided fans with an incredible amount of information on the characters we’ll encounter in the next film, but a collection of all the information we have so far about the second film.

  • A young Dumbledore
