Jessica Williams has joined the cast of the sequel for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise is in itself a spinoff of Harry Potter, and exists in the Potter universe. It is a prequel to the Potter books/films.
It is unknown what her role will be.
Carmen Ejojo and Zoe Kravitz, who starred in the first film, are returning for this one as well.
Five films are planned in the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise, and the second film will begin where the first left off, with Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander, teaming up with another new cast addition, Jude Law as Dumbledore, to take down a dark wizard.
Williams just starred in a Netflix comedy film she toplined, called The Incredible Jessica James.
She’s also starring in an untitled Showtime series about a sci-fi writer based in Brooklyn.
