The second of a planned five tales shifts the action from NY to Paris, as Newt teams with his favorite Hogwarts professor Dumbledore to hunt down the nefarious wizard Gillert Grindelwald. No-Maj New Yorker Jacob (Dan Fogler) and sisters Tina (Katherine Waterston) and Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol) - will all return in the film. Newcomers to the cast include: Zoe Kravitz (Leta Lestrange), Callum Turner (Theseus Scamander), Poppy Corby-Tuech (Vinda Rosier), and Brontis Jodorowsky (Nicolas Flamel). 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.
In the meantime, the Wizarding World appears to have undergone a rebrand... The only person who can defeat him is Dumbledore, whom he once called a friend. A predecessor to Voldemort from the Harry Potter series, Grindelwald was an incredibly powerful wizard who also aspires to gather pure-blood wizards to rule over all others.More news: Confirmed!
