Fantastic Beasts
The wizarding world of J.K. Rowling is getting even deeper and more complicated!

The author herself tweeted some interesting tidbits about the upcoming "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" sequels, including the detail that the franchise would cover events over two decades. And now producer David Heyman has revealed even more intriguing info — like the fact that Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander won't necessarily be the center of the following movies!

"I don't think [Newt will be at] the heart of all of them," Heyman told Cinema Blend. "I think he'll be part — so will Tina, Queenie and Jacob — will be part of the next one."

With the "Fantastic Beasts" franchise spanning two decades in time, through World War II, it makes sense that Newt wouldn't always be the lead character (unless they use some amazing aging makeup on Redmayne). Instead, it looks like the additional movies will focus on some other, familiar characters.

And now, some spoilers ahead for the first movie — if you haven't seen it, beware!

When asked if a young Dumbledore being cast, Heyman replied, "And Credence and Grindelwald. I think they will be the main players."

Johnny Depp plays Gellart Grindelwald, who is locked up after the events of the first movie. And while Credence was presumably killed, a bit of his Obscurus magic seemed to have escaped. Perhaps it will follow Newt back to Europe and cause more havoc — and perhaps pull in one young Dumbledore.
