Just released at Comic-Con is our first full look at the upcoming sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Set in J.K. Rowling’s “Wizarding World”, 2016’s Harry Potter spin-off focused on Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a wizard caring for magical creatures who enters New York and gets caught up in a mystery involving the Dark Arts and its users. Take a look at the follow-up with a new trailer, below.
Official Synopsis: Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all-new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.
At the end of the first film, 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.
