“Fantastic Beasts” Sequel Rounds Out Cast

The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel shooting has started. The original movie, the first ever Harry Potter spinoff, earned $814 million last year, so this seems like a logical move from Warner Bros.

Eddie Redmayne will return as Newt Scamander, and we’ll see Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald again. There will also be many new faces, such as Jude Law as young Albus Dumbledore, Zoe Kravitz as Leta Lestrange, and Ezra Miller as Credence.

The screenplay was written by J.K. Rowling just as the part one. The plot starts in 1927, a few months after Scamander helped to unveil and capture the infamous Grindelwald.
