The author of the fantasy series Harry Potter, JK Rowling has already started working on the third part of the Fantastic Beasts series. She recently hosted a Q&A on her website for her fans, and said, “I’ve just finished the fourth Galbraith novel, ‘Lethal White,’ and I’m now writing the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts 3.” Rowling has written her non-Harry Potter novels under her pseudonym, Richard Galbraith. Such work includes suspense novels like the series of Cormoran Strike.
’Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ is set to be released on November 16, 2018. It is the second film of the Fantastic Beast series and stars Jude Law as the young Dumbledore.
The actors Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, Carmen Ejogo, and Johnny Depp still reprise the roles they played in the first film. ’The Crimes of Grindelwald’ is directed by David Yates, who even helped in the direction of five films in the Harry Potter franchise.
According to the reports by Variety, JK Rowling explained her role as a producer on the film to her fans. She said, “Warner Bros. and David Yates, the director, have always let me have my say, though not necessarily the final word. That’s true of all the producers, of whom I’m only one, our input is taken seriously but it is very much a collaborative effort. The director is ultimately responsible for everything that’s seen on the screen.”
The consensus of the first film, ’Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them’ read, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them draws on Harry Potter’s rich mythology to deliver a spinoff that dazzles with franchise-building magic all its own.”
