WARNING: Some Spoilers for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them are in play. Please bookmark this story until you’ve watched the film, unless you’re ready for spoilers.
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them was always going to be the doorway to more adventures in the wizarding world of J.K. Rowling. But instead of just three films, the Fantastic Beasts series is in the game for five installments of Newt Scamander and his friends fighting against the forces of darkness. So, now’s probably a fantastic time to compile what we know about the next installment of this new series, which is titled Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. What do we know so far about this first Fantastic Beasts sequel? Read on and find out.
What Have We Seen From Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald?
With the movie’s release now just a few weeks away as of this writing, we’ve finally gotten the final trailer for the film to feast our Wizarding eyes on. And, as you can see above, it promises tons of action, appearances from old favorites and new characters alike, and a lot of intrigue. If you were already excited for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, then this look at the movie is sure to keep you hyped!
When Will Fantastic Beasts 2 Be In Theaters?
With previous reports that films in the Fantastic Beasts world would be coming every two years, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald pretty much makes good on that promise with its November 16, 2018 release date. It will be competing against Instant Family and Widows on its day of release, with the likes of Dr. Seuss’s The Grinch and Overlord opening before it, and Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 being released the weekend after. Still, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald shouldn’t have a problem making for a hell of an opening weekend.
What Will Fantastic Beasts 2 Be Rated?
Both the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series have historically been in the PG / PG-13 wheelhouse. As predicted, the PG-13 rating has stuck to the franchise, as it doesn’t seem that the darkness of the threats to the wizarding world will be lightening anytime soon. The official rationale by the MPAA for the rating is due to, “some sequences of fantasy action.” With magical murder, warfare, and dangerous snakes flying around in the Wizarding World, we’re not the least bit surprised.
