Fantastic Beasts 2 Gets an Official Title & Reveals Young Dumbledore

That maybe Newt will describe as Fantastic and have to find?

Picking up soon after the finale of Fantastic Beasts, The Crimes Of Grindelwald "takes place in New York, Paris, and London, where we will see love and loyalties tested in this tumultuous time in the wizarding world", according to a telegraph on Pottermore.

And one more returning cast member is the titular Grindelwald, played by Johnny Depp, though only for a mere minute in the first Fantastic Beasts. It's confirmed that Ezra Miller will return as the mysterious Credence, and stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, and more will reprise their roles from the original film as well.

The official Twitter account for Fantastic Beasts posted the exciting news on its feed, captioning the clip: "In one year, return to the Wizarding World with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald #MagicInProgress #FantasticBeasts". Depp briefly appeared as the villainous character in the first Fantastic Beasts movie, but the sequel will delve deeper into the storied history of Rowling's Harry Potter universe.

It reads: "J.K. Rowling wrote the screenplay for the film, which opens in 1927, a few months after Newt helped to unveil and capture the infamous Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald".

As well as a plot synopsis and a title, we're getting a look at the full cast - including Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore. He's in possession of the Elder Wand, too, which can only portend dark and hard times for our heroes.

Callum Turner has been cast as Newt's older brother Theseus Scamander, while Zoe Kravitz plays Leta Lestrange - who was close to Newt but is now engaged to Theseus. 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.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will see Newt team up with Dumbledore to try to stop Grindelwald's rise to power after his escape from MACUSA. The adventure reunites Newt with Tina, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly unsafe and divided wizarding world.
