"Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" Releases Teaser Trailer

Johnny Depp will play the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, while Jude Law will play Albus Dumbledore.

Set after the events of the first Fantastic Beasts movie but decades before Harry Potter's parents were born, the action moves from NY to Paris, where a young Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student and magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his friends to help track down the villainous Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).

Eddie Redmayne reprises his role as magizoologist Newt Scamander with Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller and Johnny Depp also returning. However, as he promised he would, Grindelwald has made a dramatic escape and has been gathering more followers to his cause-elevating wizards above all non-magical beings. Newcomers to the cast include: Zoe Kravitz (Leta Lestrange), Callum Turner (Theseus Scamander), Poppy Corby-Tuech (Vinda Rosier), and Brontis Jodorowsky (Nicolas Flamel). The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore.

With Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, those of us who love Harry Potter were given a brief glimpse into a tumultuous and important facet of Wizarding World history.

Some fans were pretty disappointed to hear that Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald wouldn't touch on Dumbedore's sexuality, though.
