We have the new film’s title! CAN”T WAIT! Only 365 days left until it’s released!
The followup hits theaters Nov. 16, 2018.
The full title of the Fantastic Beasts sequel has been revealed.
A year out from its release date, Warner Bros. announced that the followup to the 2016 hit will be titled Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
That title is in reference to Gellert Grindelwald, the character played by Johnny Depp. At the end of the first movie, the powerful Dark wizard was revealed and captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. The sequel will follow the efforts of Albus Dumbledore, played by Jude Law, to thwart Grindelwald.
David Yates again directs the followup from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. Eddie Redmayne — who stars in the series as a 1920s magizoologist named Newt Scamander — Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller and Carmen Ejogo will reprise their roles in the sequel. Callum Turner, Zoe Kravitz and Jessica Williams are also among the franchise’s new additions.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theaters Nov. 16, 2018. The announcement also included a first-look photo of the cast in character.
Lionsgate has released the trailer for Eddie’s new film Early Man which is scheduled for release on February 16, 2018.
The Daily Mail shares this exciting news!!!!
‘Delighted’ Eddie Redmayne and wife Hannah expecting their second child… as glowing mum-to-be debuts her baby bump
Eddie Redmayne and his wife Hannah have confirmed they are expecting their second child.
The couple, who share one-year-old daughter Iris, announced the news to MailOnline after the make-up free beauty was pictured sporting the first signs of a baby bump on Wednesday evening.
A spokesperson for the couple enthused: ‘Eddie and Hannah Redmayne are delighted to confirm they are expecting their second child.’
The happy couple were attending the Sarabande: The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation Jewellery Series Preview.
The 34-year-old beauty put on a high-spirited display as she and her famous spouse took a night off from looking after their daughter to attend the event in East London.
While the launch looked to be a formal affair, Hannah opted for a simple ensemble comprising a black jumper, skinny jeans and a navy coat, a far cry from the usual form-fitting frocks she wears.
Their night out no doubt offered a nice break from the couple’s parenting duties.
Eddie and Hannah wed at Babington House in Somerset just before Christmas 2014 and confirmed they were expecting their first child in January 2016.
The pair began dating in 2012 after previously being friends since their school days. They first met when the actor was studying at Eton College, while Hannah was boarding at a nearby girls’ school. However their friendship turned to romance when Eddie invited her to visit him in Italy while he was filming Les Miserables.
While the couple have kept tight-lipped on whether they had plans to expand their brood, Eddie has gushed about fatherhood countless times.
Speaking shortly after Iris’ birth last June, he raved: ‘She is heaven. Her name is Iris… before you’re a parent you sort of hear people talking about [sleepless nights] and then suddenly you’re the guy who’s floating in constant jet lag with an I.V. of caffeine. And so I’ve become that person.
The award-winning actor added: ‘But then occasionally there’s that amazing thing where it’s three o’clock in the morning and you’re sort of gently furious and you get a little smile and your heart breaks a bit and it’s all totally worth it.’
Eddie & Hannah are in Venice where they attended Omega’s Aqua Terra event last night. I have added some images to the gallery from their night.
This waiting is going to Avada Kedavra us.
The sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is still more than a year away. But the people at Warner Brothers must have sensed Harry Potter superfans getting restless, because they’ve just revealed a new hint about what fans can expect from the long-awaited installment in the franchise.
The movie’s official Twitter account posted an image Tuesday of an elaborate-looking case with the initials “NF” engraved on the lock. The caption reads, “The only known maker of the Philosopher’s Stone. What mysteries may be locked away? #MagicInProgress #FantasticBeasts #WizardingWednesdays.”
Even if you stopped watching the HP movies after The Sorcerer’s Stone (though, if you did, why?!), you’d know NF means Nicholas Flamel, the alchemist who invented the actual sorcerer’s stone. Y’know, the stone which produced the elixir of life that He Who Must Not Be Named was so eager to get his hands on when young Harry Potter was still a first year. Now the question left for Muggles to ponder for a year: What does Mr. Flamel have locked up in that case? And could whatever he has hidden pose as much of a threat as the stone did during that fateful year at Hogwarts?
The creator of the stone will be played by Brontis Jodorowsky, who has appeared in movies including The Darkness and The Dance of Reality. He’ll be joined by the stars of the first movie, including Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander and Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, as well as newcomers like Leta Lestrange (played by Zoë Kravitz) and a young Albus Dumbledore (played by Jude Law). The cast will also feature noted J.K. Rowling bestie Jessica Williams in a role that has yet to be announced.
The next Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie will be out on November 16, 2018. That should be enough time to parse the first Harry Potter book for more clues.
Pottermore gives us some new casting news for the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them … next November can’t come fast enough!
New characters and cast members have been announced for the new Fantastic Beasts story, and we suspect you may recognise a few of the names.
Nicolas Flamel, a character originally mentioned in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, will appear in the new Fantastic Beasts film. Flamel, who is known in the wizarding world as an alchemist who discovered the Elixir of Life (based on the real-life alchemist of the same name), will be played by actor Brontis Jodorowsky. Flamel joins a big list of new characters confirmed to feature in the film.
So far, only a few names have been revealed, but some surnames will be familiar to Harry Potter fans. Joining the cast will be Wolf Roth as a character called Spielman; Call the Midwife star Victoria Yeates as Bunty; Derek Riddell as Torquil Travers; Poppy Corby-Tuech as Rosier; and Cornell S John as Arnold Guzman. The names ‘Travers’ and ‘Rosier’ stand out in particular; these last names turn up in the Harry Potter series and belong to two Death Eaters who served Lord Voldemort.
Actor and comedian Jessica Williams, best known for her work on The Daily Show, and Fiona Glascott have also been cast in the film, but their roles haven’t been revealed.
The new names will be joining the central cast: Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein and Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski. Carmen Ejogo, who portrayed the no-nonsense President of MACUSA Seraphina Picquery in the first film, has now been confirmed to be returning too. And they certainly won’t be alone. Earlier this year, Pottermore confirmed that Jude Law would be joining the cast as Albus Dumbledore, who is set to ‘team up’ with Newt in order to take down Dark wizard Grindelwald – played by Johnny Depp.
Newt will also be joined by two characters connected to his past in the new film: his brother Theseus, played by Callum Turner; and Zoë Kravitz, who returns as Leta Lestrange, a mysterious figure from an old relationship who only appeared in a photograph in the first film.
Who knows what all these new characters are planning to get up to? We can’t wait to find out…
The sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is slated for release 16 November 2018.
Some new outtakes from last year’s San Diego Comic Con have been added to the gallery!

Reading this article bothered me immensely. I can’t imagine how Eddie & Hannah felt.
A German translator bombarded Hollywood star Eddie Redmayne with love letters in a five year harrassment campaign after seeing him in a play, a court has heard.
Gaby Stieger, 49, repeatedly loitered outside the Oscar-winning actor’s house in Southwark, south London, and sent him love letters.
She pleaded guilty to stalking at Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.
Redmayne described the distress it caused him and his family in a statement read to the court.
He said: “I always try to be open and friendly as support (from fans) is what gives me a career.
“I deeply regret having met Gaby Stieger – she harassed myself and my family intermittently over five years, leaving us distressed, unsafe and deeply unsettled.”
She would appear outside his house “out of nowhere – observing me and my family without us knowing”, he added.
“The safety of my family is everything to me and with her behaviour we can’t feel safe,” he wrote.
He also said her face would “contort with rage” when she spoke about his wife Hannah Bagshawe.
Stieger first met Redmayne, 35, after seeing him on stage at Donmar Warehouse in Covent Garden in 2012.
The following year she began visiting the set while he was filming The Theory Of Everything and trying to get Redmayne to pose in a picture with her.
Stieger followed him and his wife to a carol service at Eton College in December 2013.
She can be seen staring at him in a photograph taken by a fan.
The mother-of-two, whose teenage daughters live in Germany, started sitting in a park opposite Redmayne’s house.
She also followed him to his local Tube station and on one occasion asked him for a hug.
Stieger sent Redmayne letters “expressing admiration and love”, prosecutor Sara Ashkboos said.
“She directly states she is in love with the complainant and asked him to reply,” she added.
In one of her letters Stieger wrote: “I know things about you.”
Redmayne also spotted her in the crowd in Leicester Square at the premiere of the latest Harry Potter film last year, which he had a lead role in.
He was so worried about the stalking that he contacted a solicitor and repeatedly told Stieger to leave him and his family alone.
In August 2017 Stieger approached Redmayne again outside his house, while he was with his baby daughter, and tried to touch his arm.
Stieger, of Colindale, north London, was released on conditional bail, banning her from contacting Redmayne or going to Southwark, and is due to be sentenced on Thursday afternoon.
