David Yates will return to direct the film.
David Sakurai is the latest addition in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel. The Danish-Japanese actor, director, scriptwriter and martial artist is known for his work in Netflix’s Iron Fist.
He will play Krall, a sulky and ambitious henchman employed by the villain Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).
The year is 1927; a few months have passed since the events of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Gellert Grindelwald has escaped imprisonment as he promised and has begun gathering followers to his cause—elevating wizards above all non-magical beings. The only one capable of putting a stop to him is the wizard he once called his closest friend, Albus Dumbledore. However, Dumbledore will need to seek help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander. The adventure reunites Newt with American friends Tina, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world.
