Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Carmen Ejogo, Ron Perlman and Colin Farrell.

Warner Bros.is also looking for three actors between the ages of 13 and 16 to play teenage versions of Newt Scamander, Leta Lestrange, and a new character named Sebastian.

Though Jude Law will play young Albus Dumbledore, fans will also see an even younger version.

For the roles of Newt and Leta, Harry Potter HQ is looking for teenagers aged between 13 to 16. A fifth role for a younger actor is an entirely new character.

J.K. Rowling said she's planning four sequels in the series.

Jude Law was previously announced to play a younger version of Dumbledore as well, possibly during the years he spent as a Transfiguration professor at Hogwarts while Scamander was a student there.

"Open casting calls are something of a tradition in the Wizarding World". Eventually, Dumbledore changed his mind after his sister was killed in duel between himself, Grindelwald and his brother Aberforth. We know that the franchise will span two decades, starting in 1926 with Fantastic Beasts and coming to a close with the fifth instalment in 1945. What do you think it means for the franchise?

Not to mention Leta Lestrange's connection to Newt... We know that Newt was expelled from Hogwarts school and that Leta may have been involved, so the age of the roles being cast here indicate that Fantastic Beasts 2 may give us some of the juicy details. Small though her role may have been, it was clear that there was a deep and perhaps uncomfortable story to explore surrounding Leta and her relationship with Newt. If she was an Obscurus, Newt could go to Dumbledore for help in figuring out what to do about Credence.

The first sequel to "Fantastic Beasts" will be released on November 16, 2018, and will be based in Paris and London, according to producer and screenwriter J.K. Rowling. Pottermore, the Harry Potter website, posted the news. Arriving in NY for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt's fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
