Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (June 22)
Unlike previous Jurassic Park sequels, this film isn’t actually a sequel to Jurassic Park. It’s a sequel to the Jurassic Park sequel Jurassic World. It’s a Jurassic World sequel, and though I had my doubts at its release, the trailer actually looks pretty cool.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (November 16)
The second in an estimated five film franchise, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald introduces the main villain, Grindelwald, who tore the wizarding world apart in the First Wizarding War. We have all the details here.
