The Hollywood Reporter spoke about the news and provided a synopsis:
The screenplay — again written by J.K. Rowling after her debut in the first film — opens in 1927, a few months after Scamander helped to unveil and capture the infamous Grindelwald. However, the dark wizard was true to his word and escaped, gathering more followers to his cause. This time, it’s down to his former friend Albus Dumbledore to stop him, but with the help of former student Scamander.
The second in the five-part Fantastic Beasts series, being directed again by David Yates, is set to move the magic from New York to London and Paris, with some “surprising nods” to the Harry Potter films.
I don’t know about you, but I’m really excited to see Johnny Depp play Grindelwald. I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the Fantastic Beasts line of movies, but so far, I am a happy fan. Besides, who doesn’t love seeing all of those magical creatures? Thank you J.K. Rowling.
How do you think Jude Law will do as young Dumbledore?
I’ve always liked him as an actor. I think it could be a match made in heaven to be honest. I’m sure parts of the internet will disagree. The point is, we get MORE DUMBLEDORE you guys! That is something to celebrate.
