The first installment of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them gave us a glimpse of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald, leaving the fans wanting for more. The new sequel will dwell more into Grindelwald giving a full view into his life and crimes.

Revealed as Grindelwald at the end of the first film, Johnny Depp says he relished the opportunity to immerse himself fully in the new film’s title role. “I could not be more honored to have been invited into this world by David Yates, David Heyman and J K Rowling. I felt thoroughly humbled to be thought of for anything in one of J K’s brilliant stories because I admire her so much. When the idea first came around, she and I talked for hours, and what amazed me was Jo never once dictated to me how Grindelwald should be.”

“ She gave me information to build the structure, and so you work within the boundaries of that structure, but she was also very open to my ideas. One of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard in my career was when Jo said, ‘I can’t wait to see what you do with the character.’ Obviously,all these characters are very precious to her, so for her to trust me to that degree was very exciting and such a boost of confidence.”

David Yates, who also helmed the last four Harry Potter movies and Fantastic Beasts first installment, returns as the director of the second in the series of five.
Oscar winning Eddie Redmayne returns as Newt Scamander for the second installment.
