Warner Bros. has unveiled further plot details for the highly anticipated sequel to J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as principal photography kicks off for the film.

The as-yet-untitled feature - which started shooting in the U.K. Principal photography on Monday at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden outside London on Monday - will pick up months after the events of ‘Fantastic Beasts’, with Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) having escaped and "gathering more followers to his cause - to elevate wizards above all non-magical beings."

The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend - the young Albus Dumbledore (to be played by Jude Law) - who calls upon his former student, magical beasts lover Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to help him defeat the villain.

The alliance also sees the return of original characters such as Tina (Katherine Waterston), Queenie (Alison Sudol), and Jacob (Dan Fogler), and Ezra Miller as Credence, who "makes a mysterious return", in addition to some new faces including - Zoë Kravitz, who will play Leta Lestrange, as well as Green Room actor Callum Turner (as Newt's brother Theseus Scamander, a "war hero and Auror") and The Avengers: Age of Ultron actress Claudia Kim (as an unnamed woman who is introduced "as a featured attraction at a wizarding circus").

The "Fantastic Beasts" sequel will also move the action from New York to London to Paris, with the film to also include "some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of the books and film series", according to the studio. David Yates, who helmed the original feature, is also back behind the camera to direct from a script penned by ‘Harry Potter’ author J.K. Rowling.

The as-yet untitled sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is slated for a debut in theatres November 16, 2018.
