You can read the official synopsis for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: The Crimes Of Grindelwald here:
J.K. Rowling wrote the screenplay for the film, which opens in 1927, a few months after Newt helped to unveil and capture the infamous Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. However, 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, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world.
The film stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Jude Law, Carmen Ejogo, Zoe Kravitz, Claudia Kim, Johnny Depp and Callum Turner. David Yates is directing and the screenplay is written by JK Rowling.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: The Crimes Of Grindelwald is in UK cinemas on 16 November 2018. Get all the latest fantasy news with every issue of SciFiNow.
