Harry Potter fervor is still very much alive. According to Fandango’s survey of moviegoers looking to pinpoint the most anticipated movies of the fall 2018 theatrical season, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald made the top of the list, followed by the Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody.

The latest Fantastic Beasts sequel returns Eddie Redmayne as magizoologist Newt Scamander, who, under the direction of a young Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) travels to Paris in the year 1927 to thwart the plans of nefarious dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). The film, directed by David Yates, marks the latest expansion to the wizarding world of J.K. Rowling, who wrote the screenplay.

Mr. Robot‘s Rami Malek is also coming to the screen as the legendary Queen frontman in Bohemian Rhapsody from director Bryan Singer.

Other films that made the list of the top five list most anticipated fall movies include the Spider-Man-based Venom (starring Tom Hardy), Wreck-It Ralph sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet, and the upcoming remake of A Star Is Born with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.

“Featuring a vibrant mix of exhilarating original stories and the return of hotly-anticipated franchises, this fall season will deliver movies for fans of every genre,” says Fandango managing editor Erik Davis. “Moviegoers are particularly excited about the long-awaited return to Hogwarts in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, as well as a double-dose of movies driven by music, with A Star Is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody poised as prominent awards season contenders.”
