How FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Expands And Improves Upon The First Film

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald executive producer David Heyman gives us great hope for the second of five planned movies from J.K. Rowling, teasing a "much different" film from the first.

Though Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them received a mostly positive response, the argument could be made that it never really lived up to the hype set forth by the original series of Harry Potter films. This has led to some skepticism surrounding the newly announced sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Following last week's grand unveiling of the cast of the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, we're now starting to get some broad details regarding the film. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, executive producer David Heyman provided us with some very good reason for optimism, detailing how the second film written by J.K. Rowling expands and improves upon the first.

“We delve deeper into Jo’s wizarding world — we’re in Paris, we’re in London and New York — the world is expanding,” Heyman teased. “As you can tell from the image, we’re following quite a few characters. The new film has a very different feel than the first. It’s got a thriller quality. And it’s also a story about love and passion and all its forms — paternal, romantic, political. And it’s just a thrilling and very fun adventure. We took all we’ve learned from one and just expanded that and created a richer, deeper and more thrilling film which I’m excited to be a part of.”

Heyman went on to praise David Yates' direction for the film. "Cinematically it's more dynamic. The camera is more alive and much more immersive. It has a more contemporary cinematic approach.”

Until we see our first trailer for the film we'll just have to take Heyman's word for it, but there's no doubt the first teaser image has sparked some great conversation, particularly around Jude Law's younger version of Albus Dumbledore.

“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 (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.”
