Warner Bros. Pictures has revealed a brand new poster for their upcoming sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. This poster puts Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) at the center of it all, and although we don’t see his face, one can tell the threats he is ready to unleash as we see much of the film’s primary ensemble surrounding the antagonist.
You can check out the brand new poster down below:
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second of five planned films in this new series from Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. The first film was a nice introduction to this old era of the Wizarding World, and to see the next few films get closer to the famous duel between Dumbledore (Jude Law) and Grindelwald is quite exciting for Potterheads.

At the end of the first film, the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise wizards and witches up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore 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.
Directed by David Yates from a script written by J. K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Jude Law and Johnny Depp.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released in theaters on November 16, 2018.
