New Look At Fantastic Beasts 2 Reveals Young Newt
The new Fantastic Beasts movie unveils a new image!
Check Out Young Newt In Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald!
The new image from Entertainment Weekly reveals Newt Scamander as a young student at Hogwarts being trained in the wizarding ways by Professor Albus Dumbledore. The new film will have Newt and Dumbledore caught in the midst of a brewing war against their former ally, Grindelwald. We can see from the image that Newt is donning his Hufflepuff robes, while Dumbledore stands behind him, pointing his wand at something off screen. We know that Newt was ultimately expelled from Hogwarts -- despite Dumbledore's objection - after he put one of his classmate's life at risk in an ordeal involved a mysterious magical beast, so this still might be showing the moments before that incident goes down. Whatever the reason, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will feature flashbacks into Newt's past, and fans are sure the scenes will be as sweet as they are angsty. The movie will also see an older Newt meet up with Dumbledore following his latest adventure when the Hogwarts professor requests help in capturing a now-escaped Grindelwald. Taking place all over the world, specifically Paris, this magical sequel will explore plenty of new stories and answer some long-standing questions about the wizarding world along the way.
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). 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 (Jude 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. Starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Zoe Kravitz, Claudia Kim, Johnny Depp, and Jude Law, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is directed by David Yates and written by J.K. Rowling and opens on November 16.
