Get ready to whip out your wands with the second installment of the Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. In the first film, moviegoers were clued in to events prior to the Harry Potter timeline. There are, however, a few correlations between the original series and the new spin off. Grindelwald’s story was loosely explained to the reader, but we never really got a proper explanation of the great dark wizard’s life, until now.

The main cast of this film has been confirmed, with the leading role of Newt Scamander being filled by Eddie Redmayne. Redmayne is known for his roles in “Les Miserables” and “Jupiter Ascending”. Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol return as “Tina Goldstein” and her sister, “Queenie” respectively. Dan Fogler also comes back as “Jacob”, the no-maj (non magic) baker, and Johnny Depp returns as the infamous wizard “Grindelwald.”

The setting and the plot for the movie have been confirmed as well. “Fantastic Beasts 2” is set months after the ending of the first film, around 1927, just after Grindelwald escapes prison. He is beginning to gather a following of wizards, willing to do his bidding. This isn’t far from the plans of Voldemort in the original series.

The synopses for the film reads that the only one who has the power to stop Grindelwald is his old friend, Albus Dumbledore. Dumbledore, however, will require help from Newt Scamander, the wizard who trumped Grindelwald in the first movie.

Fans and critics alike will surely be holding “Fantastic Beasts 2” to very high standards, as the first film in the series swept many of us off our feet. Hopefully with some luck (and maybe some magic) David Yates can pull off another Fantastic film.
