Warner Bros. has revealed plot details for its upcoming sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and it looks like we’ll be learning more about Dumbledore’s history with Grindelwald.
Fantastic Beasts 2, as we’re calling it, is the second part to a five-part series of movies set within the Harry Potter universe. The second movie has started filming and now Warner Bros. has revealed the official plot synopsis.
“As he promised he would, Grindelwald has made a dramatic escape and has been gathering more followers to his cause — elevating wizards above all non-magical beings. The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore.
“But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander. The adventure reunites Newt with Tina (Katherine Waterston), Queenie (Alison Sudol) and Jacob (Dan Fogler), but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world.”
There’s obviously plenty to go on with this plot and we could speculate all day. What might also be interesting is that there was a casting call for young actors to play Newt and Tina which suggests we might see some sort of flashback.
Plus with Jude Law cast as Dumbledore, it’ll be interesting to see how that plays out too.
