Written by J. K. Rowling, this storyline brings us even closer to Harry Potter’s world ... The second of the five-film series that began with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them moves from New York to London and on to Paris. At the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world. The published screenplay will comprise J.K. Rowling’s full script of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, featuring a cast of both familiar and new magical creatures and characters.
