Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was one of our favourite movies of 2016.

A first look at Warner's "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelward" today, kids.

The photo also introduces several new characters to the franchise, including creepy Credence (Ezra Miller), the cursed Maledictus (Claudia Kim), and Leta LeStrange (Zoë Kravitz), Newt's childhood best friend now engaged to his older brother Theseus (Calum Turner).

The first Fantastic Beasts film came out past year and won an Oscar for best costume design, making it the first of Rowling's Wizarding World films to win an Academy Award.

A previous announcement also explained that the character was teased in Fantastic Beasts as a member of the 'Circus Arcanus,' seen on this background poster. 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.

The new film sees Redmayne and Depp reprising their respective roles alongside a number of other returning casts Katherine Waterston, 37, as Auror Tina Goldstein, Alison Sudol, 32, as Queenie and Dan Fogler, 41, as Jacob Fowalski.

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. David Yates, who directed "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" and the final four "Potter" installments, is returning to helm the second film in the series from a script by "Harry Potter" creator J.K. Rowling. How Voldemort first encountered Nagini is as yet unknown, so it could provide a nice and subtle linking point between Newt Scamander and the Harry Potter stories.
