Just when we thought that dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) would be locked away for good, he escaped.
Grindelwald was being transferred from a maximum security prison to London where he was to be tried for the crimes he committed in Europe.
The screenplay for Fantastic Beasts — The Crimes of Grindelwald was provided by J.K. Rowling (The Harry Potter series), and directed by David Yates.
To take Grindelwald down once and for all Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), who thinks he’s ready for the adventure.
For those unfamiliar with the series, Newt is a British Ministry of Magic employee in the Beasts Division of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, as well as a self-proclaimed magizoologist. Now he plays a part in remedying the events of a violent attack on the City of New York in December 1926 involving this dark wizard.
This latest special effects extravaganza releases this coming Tuesday, March 12. A third untitled film is scheduled to be released in November 2020.
