Many fans still demand Harry Potter spinoff stories like Fantastic Beasts officially put into a book form. However, for now, fans need to be content with the Fantastic Beasts and other projects like the stage production of Harry Potter & The Cursed Child. There are plenty of fans who do expect a prequel to Fantastic Beasts series but that seems a bit too soon for now.
A new project, “Robert Galbraith” is up next for Rowling, which is the alter ego she adopts to write her crime novels, the Cormoran Strike. The new trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be dropping on September 25.
Directed by David Yates, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Jude Law, and Johnny Depp.
At the end of the first film, the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise wizards and witches up to rule over all non-magical beings.In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore 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.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is set to hit the theaters on November 16th.
