Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne).  But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead.  Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, Poppy Corby-Tuech, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp.

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling.  The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.  Tim Lewis, Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen serve as executive producers.

Rated PG-13 and set for release on November 16, 2018, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be distributed worldwide in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Not to be confused with an Animagi or Werewolves, Maledictuses are always women and carry a blood curse from birth, which is passed down from mother to daughter. The slow transformation into a beast is beyond their control, but they aren’t destined to be evil and are not all are snakes. (Source: Twitter replies from Jo to fans)

Wand Installation To Light Up London In Celebration Of The Crimes Of Grindelwald
Posted by Megs

Warner Bros. have announced a wand installation to celebrate the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which hits theaters on November 16th. In an effort to raise awareness of J.K. Rowling’s charity Lumos, there will be nine fifteen foot tall wands illuminating the walkway between the Millennium Bridge (seen in Half-Blood Prince) and St. Pauls Cathedral. The wands will be lit from October 18th through November 12th beginning at 6:45pm.

This is the start of Wizarding Wednesday, a series of activities for fans as part of the City of London Arts Initiative for public art. These Wizarding Wednesdays will include wand training, live performances of music from Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts and more!

The full press release may be read below:

Next month, as excitement builds for the 16 November release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ highly anticipated new Wizarding World adventure Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, an installation of nine giant wands will illuminate the walkway between Millennium Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral in London to help raise awareness for J.K. Rowling’s charity Lumos, whose mission is to end the institutionalisation of children around the world.

Standing fifteen feet tall, the wands – bringing to life those belonging to some of the most beloved characters in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films – are the centrepiece of the new installation, Fantastic Beasts: Wizarding World Wands supporting Lumos.  It is set to light up Peter’s Hill every night at 6:45pm from 18th October to 12th November.

Created in association with Lumos as part of the City of London Arts Initiative for public art, the installation also kicks off a series of exciting activities for fans every “Wizarding Wednesday,” including wand training and a live performance of music from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films by a military marching band.

Josh Berger, President and Managing Director of Warner Bros. Entertainment UK, Eire & Spain, and President, Harry Potter Global Franchise Development said: “We are thrilled to partner with Lumos on this landmark installation, which is sure to delight fans and the tens of thousands of commuters and tourists passing through Peter’s Hill each day.

“London has played a huge role in the on-screen legacy of the Wizarding World, from King’s Cross Station to Millennium Bridge, not to mention the nearby Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden – which has housed countless iconic sets across all ten films and nearly two decades – providing a major boost to the UK film industry.

“Fantastic Beasts: Wizarding World Wands supporting Lumos is emblematic of this unique relationship, celebrating the magic of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts here in London while raising awareness for the vital work being done by Lumos on behalf of some of the world’s most vulnerable children.”
