Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp and Jude Law were among the stars to walk the blue carpet at the UK premiere of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and Radio NOVA was there.
The highly anticipated sequel to 2016’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, a spin-off from JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series, sees Eddie Redmayne return as Newt Scamander.
Depp plays evil wizard Gellert Grindelwald and Law portrays a younger version of Harry Potter’s Albus Dumbledore.
The trio was joined by other stars from the film including Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Zoe Kravitz and Callum Turner for the premiere at Cineworld Leicester Square and Vue West End in London.
The film, directed by David Yates, sees the peace between the wizarding and the non-wizarding worlds in jeopardy as Grindelwald plans to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
Dumbledore and Scamander must thwart his plans as the wizarding world becomes increasingly divided.
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, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp. The cast also includes, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is in cinemas from November 16.
