Jk Rowling has written the screenplay for the latest movie in her wizarding World Series. The so far untitled movie continues the story of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his wizarding friends.
Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne stars once more as wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander; alongside Katherine Waterston as Auror Tina Goldstein; Alison Sudol as her sister, Queenie Goldstein; and Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski, the only No-Maj in the foursome.
Oscar nominee Johnny Depp who was revealed as Gellert Grindelwald, stars as the powerful Dark wizard in the film. Professor Dumbledore and his former student, Newt Scamander must work together to defeat the dark wizard, Grindelwald.
The disarming Redmayne proved a huge success as Newt Scamander in ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ and he is rejoined by the support cast. Depp looks suited to the role of the dark villainous wizard with some doubt cast over the choice of Jude Law as Dumbledore.
The franchise will see the addition of Albus Dumbledore before his tenure as headmaster at Hogwarts. Jude Law will star as Professor Dumbledore as the story takes the wizards and witches from America to London and on to Paris.
The story does not appear to be worlds away from that of the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise. The next instalment of Rowling’s wizarding world is due for release on November 16, 2018.
