Yesterday (October 13th) there was massive, humongous, and spoiler-y Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them fan event and conference and so much good stuff happened it was almost too much.
Firstly, J.K. Rowling announced that rather than just being a trilogy there’d be five (yes, FIVE) Fantastic Beasts films. What’s more, we learned that the later films would have something to do with Gellert Grindelwald and Albus Dumbledore (!!!).
Director David Yates, who also directed the last four Potter movies, said how they couldn’t talk about specifics but he did let this little teaser out.
Despite this, the director did open up about what we could expect from the next four films.
What’s more, there is a brand new featurette that spills even MORE details about the film and it’s way too exciting.
Okay, so we know that in someway Fantastic Beasts is going to be related to Grindelwald and his bid for power. In fact, if you look closely you can even see a flash of sign of the Deathly Hallows.
What’s more, did you hear the reference to Dumbledore when Colin Farrell’s character, Percival Graves, is questioning Newt Scamander, played by Eddie Redmayne?
Eeeeeeek! This is just so darn exciting!
It also appears that Newt’s creatures aren’t going to be the only dark force at play in the film, too, and now we really, really need to know what’s going to happen.
Luckily, there’s not too long to wait until the first instalment. In fact, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theatres on November 18th.
Oh, and there’s also a shiny new poster just to top everything off!
