Details Announced for FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Soundtrack
WaterTower Music announced the details of the original motion picture soundtrack for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the second of five all new adventures in the Wizarding World™ created by J.K. Rowling. The film will be in theaters November 16, 2018.
Grammy and Emmy Award winner and multiple Oscar nominee James Newton Howard (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The Hunger Games franchise) returned as the Fantastic Beasts composer, creating a robust, 25-track soundtrack which will be available to stream and purchase digitally November 9, 2018. Fans are able to hear two of those tracks early, as WaterTower Music has just released both "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" and "Salamander Eyes" for streaming and purchase.
In addition to the score, the soundtrack will treat fans to three solo piano cues performed by James Newton Howard and not heard in the film: "Dumbledore's Theme (Solo Piano)", "Fantastic Beasts Theme (Solo Piano)" and "Leta's Theme (Solo Piano)." Those three tracks are scheduled to be released October 26, 2018.
"To work on Fantastic Beasts is a wonderful musical opportunity," describes composer James Newton Howard. "The movie is delightful, substantial, and complex; and [director] David Yates focuses very seriously on the music and is a truly passionate and enthusiastic collaborator."
