THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World™. We've already shared our wish list for 5 great Harry Potter spinoffs - check those out and let us know if you agree, in the comments!
The film will continue where the first Fantastic Beasts film left off, with the entire wizarding world reeling after discovering Graves was actually Grindelwald, hiding in plain sight.
Until now. Today, Warner Bros released a trailer teaser for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald with the full trailer dropping sometime tomorrow.
Zoe Kravitz also appears as the mysterious Leta Lestrange, after having a cameo in the first film.
White House aide John McEntee fired, under investigation
White House Chief of Staff John Kelly implemented "a stricter security-clearance policy" when he took over the role. There are few details about his firing, except that it was related to serious financial crimes.
Returning for the sequel is Katherine Waterston as Porpetina Goldstein, Dan Fogler as Newt's muggle friend Jacob Kowalski, and Ezra Miller as Credence Barebone, who seems to have survived his apparent death in the previous movie.
At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). He's broken free of custody and is now gathering followers across the globe to aid him in his true goal: the rule of pure-blood wizards over all non-magical beings.
The movie will bring back the main cast from the first movie, led by Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander, and adds in a young version of Albus Dumbledore, played by Jude Law. People joined Grindelwald because they were exhausted of living in the shadows of the no-maj (they're still muggles to me, but whatever), and they believed in a birthright to be the dominant force on Earth.
The film is due to hit cinemas in Ireland on November 16, 2018.
