In mid-November we got our first look at the cast of Fantastic Beast 2, along with the news that it would officially be titled, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. That included Jude Law as a younger Dumblebore.
Now a couple of new pics have been released, including a better look at Law’s future Hogwarts headmaster – or as some people have already taken to referring to him as, ‘Hot Dumbledore’. There’s also a new image featuring a mad-haired Johnny Depp as the evil Grindelwald, but as it’s currently feeling like it would have been better not to have him in the franchise at all, the less said about that the better.
Here’s the 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.’
The film is due out November 2018. Take a look at the new pics below.
