Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald trailer hit at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, and it’s looking like this will be a heck of a follow-up.
On the Johnny Depp creep-o-meter of his roles, we have to say Grindelwald is ranking pretty high up there at this point. Remember, this is is a five-movie series, so we have some more time to spend with this character.
At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie 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 (Jude 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.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will hit theaters on Nov. 16.
