A young Dumbledore and Grindelwald in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.' Warner Bros. We now know the official title for Newt Scamander's (Eddie Redmayne) next adventure: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald.

While some grappled with their feelings about being so overwhelmingly attracted to the once-grandfatherly figure, others seem to be totally on board with the young wizard's look.

The big news though is that Ezra Miller's Credence, the Obscurial last seen disappearing in a haze of black smoke, will also be returning.

Check out young, stud Dumbledore as played by Jude Law in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts. Grindelwald, in possession of the Elder Wand, presents a risky front to all of wizarding kind.

He barely needs an introduction to Harry Potter fans.

Gellert Grindelwald, of course, is a dark wizard who was close to Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter's friend and headmaster at Hogwarts.

Jude Law as Dumbledore and Johnny Depp as Grindelwald. But there's still another 20 years before the famous battle of 1945, which is expected to be the climax of the fifth and final Fantastic Beasts film.

If that title is anything to go by, Johnny Depp's dark wizard is set to take centre stage in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts movie, although in the newly released cast photo Grindelwald is standing menacingly to the side.

The photo shows fans that we can expect Zoe Kravitz as Leta Lestrange, who is engaged to Newt Scamander's brother; Callum Turner as Newt Scamander's older brother Theseus Scamander; and Claudia Kim as Maledictus, who carries a blood curse that destines her ultimately to transform into a beast.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans, Dumbledore enlists his former student 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".
