“I’m really excited to be able to share a little bit more about what we’ve been doing with our next installment in the series.
It’s going to be really cool to explore the mythology of the Newt family.”
The original film’s director, David Yates, also shared his thoughts on the sequel, which is set for release on February 18, 2020.
In a Reddit AMA, Yates explained that “Fantasmic Beasts and Where to Find Them” would not be “about Newt’s death,” but rather “the beginning of a new story.”
“The Newt family has to find its way, but in doing so, they will have to confront the horrors of a world that they once protected,” Yates said.
“They will also have to grapple with what has become of Newt’s mind.
These are stories that we know well, so it’s going be very exciting to finally tell them.”
We’ve been telling a story about Newt’s evolution for over 10 years now.
And this is our chance to really give it a full and complete spin.
It will be an exciting adventure, and I’m really looking forward for that.
“Yates was asked if he could share more about the film’s plot, which he described as “a dark, mysterious and mysterious story.””
We have the Newt series that we have been telling, and we are also going to give some other information on that as well.”
