Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the film score to the 2018 film of the same name composed by James Newton Howard. The soundtrack was released digitally on 9 November 2018 by WaterTower Music.[1][2][3][4]

Background[edit]

James Newton Howard who previously scored the previous film confirmed in a podcast that he would be returning to score the sequel.[5][6] Newton Howard said in a interview that he saw a "wonderful musical opportunity" with the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald due to depth of the film. Howard further stated that he had a passionate and enthusiastic collaboration with director David Yates who he said focused a lot on the musical aspect of the film.[7]

The last 3 tracks which appear on the album are piano solos of the individual themes, that James Newton Howard performed himself and will not appear in the film. These tracks were released on 26 October 2018.[7]

In January 2019, a vinyl record of the soundtrack is planned to be released.[8][9]

Unlike the soundtrack for the first movie, there has been no word on a deluxe edition.[citation needed]
