In 12 months time, Fantastic Beasts 2 will be in cinemas worldwide and Harry Potter fans will be notching themselves up a level of excitement.
What perfect time to reveal those juicy details about the further adventures of magizoologist Newt Scamander and today Warner Bros has revealed the official title. Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them 2 will now be called Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Also to support the news we have the synopsis as well as the first official image, check it out…
The image also gives our first proper look at young Aldus Dumbledore played by Jude Law who was once the former friend of Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). The title also confirms the movie will take place several months after the first movie starting in London. The image also confirms Ezra Miller‘s Credence Barebone is also returning, whose fate was unknown at the end of the first film.
Here’s the official Synopsis:
At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Depp) was 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.
