Featuring questionable casting but undeniable excitement for some other new faces and firm favourites, the film picks up where magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) left off, as his adventures now lead him to reckon with his past with the help of his old mentor – none other than the young wizard Albus Dumbledore. In muggle terms, we welcome Jude Law with open arms to the wizarding world.
Fresh from battle and still uncertain as to the fate of Credence (Ezra Miller), the endearingly tremulous Newt must rally under Dumbledore to face against the imminent return of dark magic. As Grindelwald (the severely hair-bleached Johnny Depp) begins to recruit an army, it’s up to Newt to fight for what is right. Can he continue to rely on old bonds of love and loyalty in the ever-divided wizarding world?
Katherine Waterston returns to join the ensemble cast alongside the reliable and loveable Eddie Redmayne as Newt, and Dan Fogler as Kowalski. Exciting new names, Zoe Kravitz and Claudia Kim, are also set to bring their own wonder to the Fantastic Beasts family.
The Crimes of Grindelwald is shaping up to be an exciting sequel with a case to prove, as Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling and director David Yates have confidently continued to defend the casting of Johnny Depp as the antagonising central villain, Grindelwald. All will be revealed as to whether magic will soar or sink against the dark side, as the film graces UK screens on 16 November. Get your wands ready, a battle is coming.
