Potterheads, rejoice! Warner Brothers on Thursday revealed the first moving poster and the title for the second installment of the five-movie Fantastic Beasts series.
Called 'Crimes of Grindelwald', it is slated to release a year from now, on November 16, 2018.
A prequel series to the blockbuster Harry Potter stories, the Fantastic Beasts movies are being co-written by JK Rowling.
The Fantastic Beasts family has gotten bigger and fiercer in trying to undo the Crimes of Grindelwald.
With this film, Jude Law and Johnny Depp join the Fantastic Beasts universe as the young professor Albus Dumbledore and the villainous Gellert Grindelwald.
Ezra Miller's Credence, lead man magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), and Dan Fogler, the lovable muggle, reprise their roles from the first installment.
One of the most fabled events of Rowling's wizarding world, the clash between old-friends-turned-enemies Dumbledore and Grindelwald, is expected to feature in this installment.
However, fans are displeased with Johnny Depp being cast as Grindelwald. Depp was accused of domestic abuse by his now ex-wife Amber Heard, who later dropped the allegations.
From Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to Colin Farrell, Twitter is filled with replacement suggestions.
JK Rowling wrote Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as a spin-off to her insanely-successful Harry Potter series. The slim volume was released in 2001 to benefit charity Comic Relief. Rowling notably marked her screenwriting debut with the book's film adaptation last year.
