Post 'Fantastic Beasts' 2 SDCC full panel online, plus 7 new interviews with the cast

For those who were not in attendance at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and missed out all the incredible surprises from Saturday's Fantastic Beasts:The Crimes of Grindelwald panel, that can be watched here - and yes, it does feature the reveal of Johnny Depp in characters as Gellert Grindelwald.

Those who joined the panel were leads Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein), Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein), Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski), Ezra Miller (Credence Barebone), Zoe Kravitz (Leta Lestrange), Claudia Kim (Maledictus), Callum Turner (Theseus Scamander), and Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore).

The cast sat down with several media outlets after the panel and trailer reveal, though did not say a lot about the actual movie itself. As they were still sworn to secrecy, they could tease a bit here and there. All nine sat down with EW, which can be watched here.

Jude Law: “There’s only so much I can reveal, but it’s no secret that there was an incredibly intense relationship shared by these two in the past.” Though reluctant to elaborate much more, Law does add that Grindelwald — who appears in the Mirror of Erised when Dumbledore looks into it in the new trailer — “sits very much at the center of Dumbledore’s… his desires, but also the darkest parts of himself. And in a way, I think that’s what Grindelwald perhaps symbolizes for everyone: He’s temptation. He kind of empowers you but he also, I suppose, opens up the worst parts of you.”
They briefly chatted with the Los Angeles Times about apparating training, and Law's training as Dumbledore by reading the books to his children.

“I’ve been prepped for 10 years,” Law said when discussing his voice work.
The team then went and spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the new trailer, and the 'darker' elements of the sequel. The cast also revealed they knew Johnny Depp was showing at the SDCC presentation in costume.

Jude Law: "He's a little younger than he was in the Harry Potter series. He's still mischievous, and he can be manipulative. He has a great friendship with Newt. Newt was a student of his, a student that he championed."

"There's a little bit of a past there, which I think is already known, right? That Newt was asked to leave Hogwarts and Dumbledore tried to stand up for him. Newt has this capacity to always act in the right way for the right reasons, and it's something that Dumbledore relies on in this situation, because Dumbledore cannot get involved in the confrontation that is at the heart of this film. So Newt is sort of his conduit."
The four leads of the Fantastic Beasts series did a bit of a trailer breakdown with IGN, which can be watched here.

The nine cast members sat down with MTV, talking about their work on the series, meeting and getting as much as input from J.K. Rowling as possible, and more.

Kravitz did reveal that she was the only person, outside of Law, who actually shot scenes at Hogwarts as Leta Lestrange in the sequel.

The secondary cast of Crimes of Grindelwald spoke to SYFY Wire - the network which now hosts the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts sagas on U.S. television - to talk about the amount of research they did on the Wizarding world, and the input they got from director David Yates, and of course screenwriter and author J.K. Rowling.

Jude Law: "It was pretty clear what was required of him as a character when you read the script. The script evolved as we made the film and David Yates, the director, was very encouraging that I make [Dumbledore] my own, remembering that there's a long way for Dumbledore to go before he becomes a Dumbledore that we will know about and are familiar with in the Harry Potter books."
And finally, as of now, Waterston and Redmayne spoke to the Associated Press about Crimes of Grindelwald on Saturday, viewable below.

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, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, Poppy Corby-Tuech, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp.

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. Tim Lewis, Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen serve as executive producers.

The film reunites the behind-the-scenes creative team from the first “Fantastic Beasts” film, including Oscar-winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot (“A River Runs Through It”), three-time Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig (“The English Patient,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “Gandhi,” the “Harry Potter” films), four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (“Chicago,” “Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), and Yates’ longtime editor Mark Day (the last four “Harry Potter” films). The music is by eight-time Oscar nominee James Newton Howard (“Defiance,” “Michael Clayton,” “The Hunger Games” films).

Slated for release on November 16, 2018, the film will be distributed worldwide in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
