Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ will be “celebration of diversity”, as told by the director David Yates.
The 54-year-old director – who has helmed the spin-off of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ – has given fans an understanding into what they can anticipate from the most recent motion picture, uncovering that it will fill in as a festival of resistance and “acknowledgment of the other”.

Rowling] when she was writing the script, influences us as we put the whole story together. So we sort of, like – we’re alive to what’s happening in the bigger world. But the themes, I think, are kind of universal and archetypal and timeless, which is ultimately … rather than a direct political sort of counterpoint or context, it’s really about the values of tolerance and understanding and a celebration of diversity.”
