Earlier this month, Warner Bros. announced that Sherlock Holmes and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword star Jude Law has boarded the sequel, playing a young version of Albus Dumbledore opposite Johnny Depp’s villainous Gellert Grindelwald.
David Yates is back at the helm, working from a script by J.K. Rowling, with a cast that also includes returning stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller and Zoe Kravitz. Production is set to begin this summer.
Plot details are being kept under lock and key, but Yates has previously mentioned that the sequel would be set two years after the events of the first movie and see Newt and the rest of the heroes journey to the UK and Paris.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 hits theaters on November 16, 2018.
