The Crimes of Grindelwald {#1}: The heroes. The villains. The magic. In one year, return to the Wizarding World with Fantastic Beasts.

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.


Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scramander
Porpentina “Tina” Goldstein, played by Katherine Waterston
Queenie Goldstein, played by Alison Sudol
Jacob Kowalski, played by Dan Fogler
Credence Barebone, played by Ezra Miller
Theseus Scamander, played by Callum Turner
Leta Lestrange, played by Zoe Kravitz
Professor Albus Dumbledore, played by Jude Law
Gellert Grindelwald, played by Johnny Depp

L i N d $ @ y 11-19-2017 12:35 AM

You're both welcome. :)

Steph is right, Petra. That's Leta Lestrange. She was already mentioned in part 1 during that Queenie & Newt talk inside his suitcase. :)

Also, did you guys notice that it's only Dumbledore, Newt & Grindelwald with wands. That must mean something right? :hotpinkie:

Some news about the movie. :)

'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald's international logos, title treatment - Snitchseeker


David Heyman: “We delve deeper into Jo’s wizarding world — we’re in Paris, we’re in London and New York — the world is expanding. As you can tell from the image, we’re following quite a few characters. The new film has a very different feel than the first. It’s got a thriller quality. And it’s also a story about love and passion and all its forms — paternal, romantic, political. And it’s just a thrilling and very fun adventure. We took all we’ve learned from one and just expanded that and created a richer, deeper and more thrilling film which I’m excited to be a part of.”

“Cinematically it’s more dynamic. The camera is more alive and much more immersive. It has a more contemporary cinematic approach.”

Thanks, so that mean most of them have to go Paris??

L i N d $ @ y 11-24-2017 12:12 AM

Looks like it. But I wonder why Paris? What's up there? And obviously Grindelwald has escaped MACUSA if he's spotted at Paris.

I'll post here the pics of Eddie on-set as Newt. They're not super spoilerish but I'm tagging them anyway. :)


fly me to the moon 11-24-2017 05:36 PM

Yeah, that's good question.. Maybe something big happen that they need help??

Thanks for letting me know..

L i N d $ @ y 11-25-2017 12:39 AM

Yeah, something that needs attention for all of them to be there. I wonder if Theseus & Leta are there as well. And then Dumbledore is there too? Gah, so many questions from me already. :lol:

Maybe Credence was spotted there. But how did he get to Paris from New York?

fly me to the moon 11-25-2017 07:05 PM

Maybe we need to save the questions much later.. :lol:

L i N d $ @ y 11-25-2017 11:12 PM

No, I want to speculate now. :lol: But LOL at me cause we just got a promo picture of the cast so what more when we get the teaser soon? :lol:
