According to Pottermore, principal photography has started today for the sequel of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Warner Bros. Studios confirmed that Newt Scamander will help Albus Dumbledore fight against Gellert Grindelwald. Although Newt had helped to catch Grindelwald in the first film, the evil wizard managed to escape from the custody of MACUSA.
Warner Bros. also confirmed that Newt once again will be with Tina and Queenie Goldstein, along with their No-Maj ally, Jacob Kowalski. However, loyalties in the wizarding world will be challenged due to Grindelwald’s dark influence over the wizards.
As we reported here and here, Johnny Depp has been cast as Gellert Grindelwald and Jude Law has been cast as the young Albus Dumbledore. David Yates is directing. Personally, the idea of seeing Depp and Law as strong opponents in the wizarding world is very exciting to me!
Now that principal photography has begun on this most anticipated sequel, expect more news (which we will post here on Harry Potter’s Page) from the film set until the film opens on November 16, 2018.
