Warner Bros. has confirmed a sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them with a release date and director announced.
We already knew that J.K. Rowling had written the sequel and has plans for a third installment too. And now it’s moving forward as the follow-up film has been announced for Nov. 16, 2018 with David Yates returning to direct.
Yates helmed the final four Harry Potter films and the first, upcoming Fantastic Beasts movie.
The second film will “move deeper into an increasingly dark time for the wizarding world, where Newt and our other heroes have to decide on their allegiances,” Warner Bros. said in a statement.
“There is much more on the horizon,” Warner Bros. concluded by saying, as the third film in the series is expected to come out in November 2020.
So exciting times for Harry Potter fans and you can see the first Fantastic Beasts movie when it hits screens on November 18. Check out the trailer for it below:
