Introducing the Dark Wizard Grindelwald, the first Fntastic Beasts film saw him eventually captured by the American wizarding congress, MACUSA… but it looks as though they won’t keep hold of him for long, as he returns in The Crimes of Grindelwald to wreak havoc upon Newt Scamander and his pals.

Here’s the official synopsis:

“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.”

But will Newt and his pals bring Grindelwald to justice?

For now, we’ll have to wait and see.
