The First Teaser Trailer For Fantastic Beasts 2 Just Dropped

Also back for the sequel is Katherine Waterston as Newt's love interest Porpetina Goldstein, Dan Fogler as Newt's good-natured non-magical Muggle (technically No-Maj) friend Jacob Kowalski, and Ezra Miller as Credence Barebone, who seems to have survived his apparent death in the previous movie.

The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second of five planned Fantastic Beasts films with this newest installment taking place not in New York City, but instead following Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his cohorts as they adventure to Europe.

The ensemble cast includes Carmen Ejogo, returning to the role of Seraphina Picquery; Wolf Roth as Spielman; Victoria Yeates as Bunty; Derek Riddell as Torquil Travers; Poppy Corby-Tuech as Rosier; Cornell S. John as Arnold Guzman; and Brontis Jodorowsky as Nicolas Flamel. Callum Turner, Zoe Kravitz and Jessica Williams are joining the franchise. Ever-wily, Grindelwald managed to escape and is now hellbent on gathering new followers to his cause (which mostly consists of a burning desire to raise up pureblood wizards over all others).

The film expands the wizarding world, moving from NY to London and on to Paris.

"I can't move against Grindelwald; it has to be you", Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) tells Newt (Eddie Redmayne) ominously. The film will be directed by David Yates from a script by JK Rowling, who also produces with David Heyman, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. However, the teaser did reveal a social media campaign where Warner Bros is asking all Potterheads to get their #WandsReady.

The film will continue where the first Fantastic Beasts film left off, with the entire wizarding world reeling after discovering Graves was actually Grindelwald, hiding in plain sight.
