The Harry Potter film franchise gets its second spinoff with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, releasing later this month. It is the sequel to the 2016 film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The first film was set years before Harry Potter and even Lord Voldemort was born and follows Newt Scamander as the lead - a Hogwarts student with a penchant for taking care of Magical Creatures. The sequel, directed by David Yates, brings back most of the cast like Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol and Ezra Miller.
