He will also try to elevate more wizards from non-magical beings. Meanwhile, the upcoming sequel will also promise to enhance the emotional stakes as it explores the complicated relationship of Dumbledore and Grindelwald, who were once good friends.

Meanwhile, it is also reported that "Fantastic Beast 2" is to be released on November 16, 2018. Also, the third film in the new movie series will hit theaters on November 20, 2020.
