Draw your wands, Potterheads. The newest Comic-Con poster for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald teases teases a Comic-Con trailer that should arrive this morning during Warner Bros. Pictures’ Hall H panel. Fans who are waiting to get more sneak peeks at the movie only need a little more patience until that trailer goes live.
The poster released for Comic-Con shows Newt and his friends front and center, surrounded by magical symbols. Trailer-Track reports that a new full-length trailer for the movie was rated by the UK’s BBFC, which makes it almost sure that a new trailer will debut during the studio’s Hall H presentation at SDCC on Saturday, July 21.
Many fans wondered a lot about the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts 2 because it didn’t feature much of Johnny’s character Grindelwald. Being that the movie is about hunting him and his followers down, that seemed a little weird. Some speculated that Warner Bros. is downplaying Johnny’s role in the movie after domestic abuse allegations arose against him. Many speculated that the film has less to do with the character than initially thought. Then there are those who believe it’s because Grindelwald won’t become relevant to the franchise until later movies (there are plans for five in total).
Some fans also think it’s odd that Jude Law recently admitted that he has no scenes with Johnny in the new film. The Harry Potter books hinted that the two men once had a close relationship when younger, potentially a romantic one. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling also admitted that she always saw Dumbledore as gay. However, it seems that the movies plan on shying away from that, at least for now. For fans, the wait for a new trailer still feels like forever. After that, though, the wait for the movie will feel even longer. But winter will arrive before they know it, and with it comes the answers to at least some of these questions they have about Grindelwald, Dumbledore, and Newt and his fantastic creatures.

There must have been something wrong with the transferring of two movie stills of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald which I thought I had uploaded a while ago. I reckoned they weren’t even in the gallery albums.
I reuploaded them to the image archive. Enjoy!

Jessica A Nelson of Veiled Optics, a company for vustom hand painted contact lenses for film and television, posted this amazing behind the scenes shot of Johnny as Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald on her Instagram page @veiled_optics, with the caption:
One of the many great things about working with Johnny is that he always has a hand in designing almost every aspect of his look. Lenses here were designed by him and painted by Veiled Optics. Make up applied by the awesome @kniederbaumer and hair by the super duper talented @gcasny
It’s finally here, the official teaser trailer to one of Johnny’s recent movie projects: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. For those who don’t know yet, Johnny portrays the role of Gelernt Grindelwald and the movie will be released November 16 this year.
New images have just been released from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and I don’t know why I missed them. One of the movie stills even features Johnny as Gellert Grindelwald. Better late than never, but I finally uploaded the still to the photo gallery.
Johnny reprises his role of Gellert Grindelwald in the sequel and is seen standing in the street alongside Rosier (Poppy Corby-Tuech) in the just-released photos.
The sequel to 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will hit theaters on Nov. 16, 2018.

Before I’m wishing everyone of you the best of everything for 2018, I wanted to let you know that I added magazine scans of three issues from earlier that year that featured either Johnny or one of his latest movie projects. The Entertainment Weekly and one of the Total Film issues feature some information on Murder on the Orient Express, while the Total Film Winter 2018 scans talk about the Fantastic Beasts sequel, featuring Johnny as Gellert Grindelwald.
The scans were taken by myself, so please do not take them without asking and crediting. Thank you!
This being said, I wish everyone a happy new year! See you next year!
David Yates describes Amber Heard as taking a “pop” at Johnny Depp.
When Johnny Depp was first announced as the actor chosen to play villainous Gellert Grindelwald in the new Harry Potter franchise Fantastic Beasts, director David Yates was the very first person to defend the decision. Even as he revealed the news during a 2016 press junket, Yates said, in seeming reference to either Johnny’s highly publicized and nasty split from actress Amber Heard, or mixed reviews of his recent work:
“In this business, it’s a weird old business. You’re brilliant one week, people are saying odd things the next, you go up and down. But no one takes away your pure talent.”
Discontent over Johnny’s casting has only grown among the Potter fandom since the first movie was released—especially since his character was name-checked in the title of its sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Now, Yates is doubling down on his defense of Depp and tackling the Heard divorce head on.
With the release of the first cast photo from the next Fantastic Beasts movie, it’s official: Johnny Depp will return as Gellert Grindelwald, the fiend and former love interest-turned-rival to Jude Law’s Albus Dumbledore. What’s more, Johnny’s character has been upgraded to title-worthy villain; W.B. also revealed today that the second film in J.K. Rowling’s second Harry Potter universe series will be subtitled The Crimes of Grindelwald.

When news broke that Johnny was set to “co-star” in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2, the sequel to this mont’s wizarding world expansion Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, speculation immediately zeroed in on who Johnny might play. Given that Gellert Grindelwald, former friend of Albus Dumbledore, supposedly has a major role to play in this new Fantastic Beasts franchise, folks began wondering if Depp might be bringing the dark wizard to life. Well, yes, it’s true: Johnny Depp is playing Gellert Grindelwald.
The news was confirmed by director David Yates himself, who directed the final four Harry Potter films as well as Fantastic Beasts and is returning for the sequel. In speaking with The Leaky Cauldron, he revealed why they chose Johnny to fill such a pivotal role:
“The whole principal of casting the movie was go with the best actor. Go for the most inspired, interesting, right fit for that character. And as we approached Grindelwald we thought, ‘Who’s going to take this in an interesting direction?’ In this business, it’s a weird old business. You’re brilliant one week, people are saying odd things the next, you go up and down. But no one takes away your pure talent. Johnny Depp is a real artist. He’s created several characters who have really resonated in our popular culture. He’s a really brilliant, brilliant actor. We were excited about seeing what he would do with this guy, the character. He’s fearless; he’s imaginative; he’s ambitious. We thought he would do something fun and special. So we went for him, purely on that selfish basis. We don’t care if he’s famous or not famous. We just know he’s interesting.”
