Fantastic Beasts 2 name revealed: The Crimes of Grindelwald

He later tried to form a wizard-based hierarchy to subjugate Muggles.

Harry Potter readers and film fans may already be familiar with some of the crimes of Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald.

Looks like a pretty standard publicity shot, right? "We'll see him at that formative period of his life".

The studio also shared the first photo of the cast in character, including Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore. Part of Newt's fight against Grindelwald could also be complicated by a love triangle with his own brother.

Twitter Revamps Verification, Unverifies Prominent White Nationalists
But the company has recently begun to worry that the badges also conveyed an endorsement of the account by Twitter . That statement seems to imply that Twitter considered verification as some sort of merit badge, but I digress.

The Nov. 16, 2018 release date is just over 17 (!) years since the release of the first Harry Potter film, Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone. Did I know, in my heart of hearts, what Gellert Grindelwald was? But it presumably means that even the fiercest of Aurors would think twice before standing in the dark wizard's way. On 11.16.18 the #FantasticBeasts story continues. "In one year, return to the Wizarding World with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" the caption reads. The first film revealed that Leta (played by Zoe Kravitz, though only seen in the form of a photograph) and Newt had some kind of (likely romantic) relationship before-one that seems to have ended badly. Grindelwald went to Durmstrang, while Dumbledore attended Hogwarts.

That's where Dumbledore comes in, as he works with Scamander and his group of friends to try and stop them. There are clearly going to be some awkward rendezvous this time around.

The photo also introduces several new characters to the franchise, including Maledictus (played by Claudia Kim), the carrier of a "blood curse that destines her ultimately to transform into a beast". Clearly his capture by MACUSA won't last for very long, and Grindelwald is still intent on exposing the wizarding community to the non-magical world. If you look closely at Grindelwald's wand, you'll recognize it as the Elder Wand.
