Prepare for the beginnings of a great wizarding rivalry when Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald apparate into theaters exactly a year from today, November 16, 2018. This next film will also see Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) enlisted by Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) to try and stop him. The same can't quite be said of Johnny Depp's dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, whose bleached blonde hair and waist coat make him look like the member of a late 90's alt rock band.

The script was written by J.K. Rowling as the second of a planned five-film series and David Yates will direct, Forbes reported.

Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, and Dan Fogler are returning to reprise their roles as Tina Goldstein, Queenie Goldstein, and Jacob Kowalski.

A photo posted to the film's official Twitter page on Wednesday shows two wands ― one the famed Elder Wand ― and teases the inevitable showdown between Grindelwald and Dumbledore. In case you're unfamiliar with the oddly named dark wizard, he is Albus Dumbledore's mortal enemy - and their decades-long battle is one of the wizarding world's most epic feuds. Dumbledore. After the year we've had, I think we can all agree that we deserve this.

Besides for that rather lengthy and cumbersome infodump, Warner Bros. has also released the official plot synopsis, which gives us our first ideas as to what all these characters will actually be up to on-screen.

Johnny Depp is pictured as the villainous Gellert Grindelwald, following his brief appearance at the end of the first movie.

"Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world", and that could mean some very hard decisions for Newt himself.

Back in April, the makers of "Fantastic Beasts" announced that Jude Law would be playing young Dumbledore in the upcoming sequel.

There are also some new characters: Newt's older brother, Theseus Scamander (Callum Turner), and his fiancée, Leta Lestrange (Zoë Kravitz), who was seen in a photo in the first film.
