Fantastic Beasts 2 will be out in 2018

Second 'Fantastic Beasts' movie coming in November 2018, studio says

A brief synopsis for the second film has already been released, which reads: "The second Fantastic Beasts movie moves deeper into an increasingly dark time for the wizarding world, where Newt and our other heroes have to decide on their allegiances".

A sequel to the upcoming Harry Potter spinoff has already conjured up a release date.

That's well below the 8.3 million copies sold for the first day for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", J.K. Rowling's presumed finale for her fantasy series, but still among the fastest-selling works in history. The 320-page script book was published on the eve of July 31, coinciding with Rowling's 51st birthday. Rowling was the one who also penned the screenplay for the first film and Yates also directed the initial installment, E!

The Harry Potter franchise recently grew with the addition of a play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, keeping interest in the wizarding world high.

Last week, Barnes & Noble said the script book was the USA retail bookseller's most pre-ordered book since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The Fantastic Beasts sequel will again center on magizoologist Newt Scamander, a young man with a passion for unique and often very risky magical creatures. "Cursed Child" debuted as a play in London on Saturday and in printed form (as a rehearsal script) on Sunday. However, Newt mistakenly unleashes a briefcase full of fantastical creatures and must find a way to catch them all while concealing the magical world's existence from muggles. The first movie, starring Eddie Redmayne, will be released on November 18, 2016.

Parker has been very aware from the beginning that the character of Harry Potter is one that comes with baggage and expectations from the fans. The trailer seems to imply that these Fantastic Beasts mentioned in the title came to America via suitcase because.magic. "Even in 2012, our team had successfully produced The Casual Vacancy, which was J.K. Rowling's first post-Potter novel; and subsequently, had also produced India's record setting hardback Sachin Tendulkar's Playing It My Way".
