We are one year away from the release of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel and we have a treat for all you Harry Potter fans out there. Via both the films official Twitter account and Pottermore, we have a look at the cast of the highly anticipated sequel and a reveal of what the title will be.
The cast photo gives us a look at many returning faces. Including, Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein and Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski. You’ll also notice Ezra Miller’s Credence making his return after his “demise” in the first film.
New to the cast is Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore, he appears in the far left of the image. Also our first live look at Zoe Kravitz as Leta Lestrange, she appeared in a photograph in the first ‘Fantastic Beasts’. We also get another look at Johnny Depp as Grindelwald, who has just become the titular character of the film.
As for the title, the image above may have let it slip. The film will be called ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’. Here is 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.” –Jackson Hayes
