New 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' Poster Released

The actor definitely made a very memorable appearance at Comic-Con today by showing up as Grindelwald, the titular villain he is portraying in Fantastic Beasts 2: Crimes of Grindlewald. Dumbledore needs his help to bring down Gellert Grindelwald. It's at this point in the trailer where Scamander realizes the true power of Flamel. Later we see Grindelwald preaching his vision to wizards, and potentially "rising to dominance". He wants to establish a new wizarding order. Having known Grindelwald when they were younger, Dumbledore asks his former student, magical zoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to help recapture the risky fugitive.

J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World continues on the big screen in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the upcoming sequel to 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Dumbledore even tells Newt, "I can't move against him, it has to be you".

"While speaking on a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Kravitz was asked what she would do if she could use magic in real life". The crowd ate everything up, going wild as their wristbands lit up in unison when Eddie Redmayne cast a "spell".

When it was confirmed that Depp would reprise his Fantastic Beasts role and serve as the central baddie in the sequel, fans were outraged, calling for Warner Bros. and director David Yates to fire him and select someone else to portray Grindelwald on the basis of Depp's ex-wife Amber Heard's allegations that he assaulted her.

With a 360-degree video presentation and Eddie Redmayne casting a "lumos" spell on the wildly excited audience, he was joined on the stage by the Grindelwald crew including Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoe Kravitz, Jude Law, Claudia Kim, and Callum Turner. Now would be an excellent time to dust off some books and get to reading before the movie hits theaters this November. Thankfully, Warner Bros. released the trailer online shortly after it debuted at the panel, so you can see it for yourself above.
