If you really can’t wait until next year for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, you can now relieve some of the frustration with a new look at the film. brand new photos, courtesy of EW.
The first photo is pretty standard, depicting Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) exploring what appears to be a sewer. To be honest, since it’s Fantastic Beast, it could be the interior of a Parisian wizarding bank for all we know. Either way, Newt is back at it again, getting into mischief while no doubt chasing after some endangered creature or other.
The second photo is a behind the scene shot, but it gives us better look at Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore. When know it’s not much to go on, but we already reckon Law is going to be perfect. That trilby, waistcoat and sock combo just screams “future Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot”.
You can read the official synopsis for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald here:
J.K. Rowling wrote the screenplay for the film, which opens in 1927, a few months after Newt helped to unveil and capture the infamous Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. 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. The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore. But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander. The adventure reunites Newt with Tina, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world.
The film stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Jude Law, Carmen Ejogo, Zoe Kravitz, Claudia Kim, Johnny Depp and Callum Turner. David Yates is directing and the screenplay is written by JK Rowling.
