Empire Magazine has revealed a new image from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, giving us another look at Eddie Redmayne as magizoologist, Newt Scamander.
In the image, Newt can be seen wielding his wand while kneeling beside his magical briefcase, which houses his mystical creatures. It’s safe to assume that Newt is still hung up on Katherine Waterston’s Tina, as her image can be seen pinned to the inside of the case.
Check out the image:
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.
Directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech. The film will land in theatres on November 16, 2018!
