The return of everyone's favorite wizarding world just got a little bit closer to reality. The next chapter in J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trilogy, scratch that, pentalogy, has officially wrapped production. Alison Sudol, who returns to the role of Queenie Goldstein in the sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, clapped the film slate to let eager fans know that magic is in the making. Take a look.

While Queenie may be skilled at legilimency, Alison Sudol is still learning the ins and outs of working the clapperboard, and having a giggly time in the process. Now that Alison Sudol and her fellow cast mates are wrapped, the production moves to the folks behind the scenes who will edit the film and bring all of those magical creatures to life. This video from the Fantastic Beasts Twitter account is while hardly a trailer, but gives fans that tangible realization that the movie is on its way. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them proved that even without Harry Potter, audiences still crave a magical escape. What initially seemed like a one-off foray back into the world of Harry Potter is becoming a full saga in its own right, broadening the scope of the magical world and exploring it in new ways.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them introduced some exciting new characters to the universe, and Alison Sudol's Queenie proved to be one of the more interesting ones. This time around she'll be joined by plenty of new faces as the series delves more into the dark wizardry of Gellert Grindelwald. In addition to Johnny Depp is, somewhat controversially, playing Grindelwald, Zoe Kravitz is Leta Lestrange and Jude Law who will be playing a young Albus Dumbledore. J.K. Rowling will again pen the screenplay for this film, proving once again that her talents and creativity know no bounds. David Yates, the man who helmed the first Fantastic Beasts film and shepherded the back half of the Harry Potter series returns again to the director's chair.

Not every Harry Potter fan connected with Fantastic Beasts in the way they might have expected. While set in the same world and with fun and interesting characters, for some it was too divorced from what they know and expect from the Harry Potter series. This time around there will be a lot more familiar characters, albeit played by different actors, and familiar names that are at the root of the mythology fans know and love. It will be interesting to see how Queenie and her No-Maj crush, Jacob Kowalski, along with Newt Scamander and Tina, fit into this story as these legendary magical figures become the focus.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald conjures its way into theaters on November 16, 2018. Check out all of 2018's biggest films in our release schedule.
