Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Debuts New Image!
In 2018, we'll get to see the latest installment in J.K. Rowling‘s new five-film franchise which tells the backstory of he Wizarding World of Harry Potter. For now, Warner Bros. has released a pair of new images from the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel, reuiniting the heroes from the first film including Eddie Redmayne‘s collector of magical creatures Newt Scamander and Katherine Waterson‘s American Auror Tina Goldstein. The duo is back in action for the follow-up film, which jumps across the pond from New York City to Paris, France — a trend that will continue with each new Fantastic Beast sequel, as Newt and Co. traverse the world and explore new cultures in the early 1900s. In Paris, Newt and his friends are enlisted by none other than Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law), future headmaster of Hogwarts, to help bring down Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) after the infamous dark wizard escapes from prison and starts rounding up new supporters for his anti-muggle agenda.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is directed by David Yates, written by Rowling, and also stars Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoe Kravitz, Callum Turner, and Claudia Kim. Check out a special wrap video below. The powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Depp) has been captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theaters on November 16, 2018.
