Check out the new posters for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald!

Warner Bros. Pictures shared six new visuals from the second installment of the Fantastic Beasts series on Wednesday (October 10).

Here’s the synopsis: “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.”

The film also stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K.

JK Rowling Defends Claudia Kim's Casting as Nagini in 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald'

JK Rowling Defends Claudia Kim's Casting as Nagini in 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald'

After the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald trailer debuted this week, the internet had a lot to say about Claudia Kim‘s casting as Nagini.

Fans of the series called out author JK Rowling about casting an Asian actor as the character, who goes on to become a submissive snake to Voldemort.

However, the author defended Claudia‘s casting as the famous snake, explaining why she was chosen in the first place.

“The Naga are snake-like mythical creatures of Indonesian mythology, hence the name ‘Nagini,’” she wrote. “They are sometimes depicted as winged, sometimes as half-human, half-snake. Indonesia comprises a few hundred ethnic groups, including Javanese, Chinese and Betawi. Have a lovely day.”

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens nationwide on November 16th.
