Fantastic Beasts: 6 New Posters From The Crimes of Grindelwald

The second film in the Fantastic Beasts series - the second of five - will introduce us to Johnny Depp's Grindelwald, and will set audiences down a path that will lead to an epic battle between Dumbledore and Grindelwald.

How do you feel about Depp's continued involvement in the franchise?

Harry Potter producer David Heyman has slammed the backlash levelled at Fantastic Beasts 2 after it was revealed Dumbledore and Grindelwald's gay romance would not be "explicitly" referenced.

"It was incredible. It came out of nowhere".

Yates effectively said that the Depp he worked with didn't seem the type to be an abuser (they rarely do), while Rowling was a little more thorough and hinted that she was aware of circumstances to which others were not privy - a hint now solidified by Depp saying she has "seen the evidence".

Depp added: "So it was a gas and I look forward to the next instalment, which I think we start the middle of next year". J.K. said something I did not expect to hear because obviously her detail to her characters and those wizarding worlds is astonishing. The fact that she said, "I can't wait to see what you do with the character".

Just to hand it off to me with that degree of trust, I was really touched, blown away by that.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans of raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. "He's not a fun character; he's not amusing".

He appeared at the end of the film after it was discovered that Colin Farrell's character had taken a shapeshifting potion to mislead his opponents. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will place Depp in the driver's seat though, as his villainous character escapes custody and wreaks havoc. The adventure reunites Newt with Tina, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly unsafe and divided wizarding world.
