Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is just under three months away from hitting theaters. If that wasn’t exciting enough, Warner Bros is already planning a sequel for the Harry Potter spinoff to release in November 2018.
The screenplay for the sequel will be penned by J.K. Rowling, who also wrote the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Similar to how the Harry Potter series grew darker, the Fantastic Beasts sequel will dive deeper into the darkness the Wizarding World is facing.
Fans will be pleased to hear that familiar faces will once again be directing and producing the sequel: David Yates will be reprising his role as director while David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves, and Lionel Wigram will return as producers. No announcements have been made about the cast returning for the sequel but Eddie Redmayne, Ezra Miller, and Katherine Waterston are expected to reprise their roles.
