The Harry Potter franchise is loved by many people across the world. That includes me. In fact, I believe that Harry Potter is the greatest film saga of all time. For me, all eight films in that series are, at the very least, very good. The consistency in quality is staggering and no other film franchise can match the Harry Potter franchise in that regard. My love for those films meant that I could not wait for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and I liked the film a lot. The first Fantastic Beasts was a very good film to establish this spin-off series.
Consequently, I was interested to see where the sequel would take the story. The sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, titled Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, is set for a release in November 2018. That is less than a year away. Clearly, you would expect filming to finish with enough time to make sure post-production goes smoothly. A film such as this will require a lot of time to be spent on the visual effects.
Filming For Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Ends
Well, principal photography for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has finished. I am glad that filming has ended eleven months before its release. This gives the people working on the film a lot of legroom to focus on the visual effects. Moreover, it allows enough time to do re-shoots if its required. Whether more filming does or does not happen, I hope the film is great.
It certainly looks like everything is in place for the film to succeed. Indeed, we have Eddie Redmayne reprising his role as Newt Scamander and I think he is a great actor who completely lost himself in that role. J. K. Rowling has written the script for the film just as she did for the first Fantastic Beasts. Clearly, no one better exists than the creator of the world of Harry Potter to craft the story for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
David Yates is directing the film and he knows the Harry Potter franchise incredibly well. Indeed, he directed four Harry Potter films and the first Fantastic Beasts so he knows what he is doing. Seeing Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore will be interesting too. Overall, if you are a fan of the first Fantastic Beasts like I am, then plenty of things exist for you to look forward to the sequel. Because filming has ended, I guess the countdown to the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald can begin.
