At the end of the first movie (one of a planned five in the Harry Potter prequel series), the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by the Magical Congress of the United States of America thanks to help from magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his friends. The first official trailer is less than two minutes in length, but yung (sic) Dumbledore is here to steal the show.

On the heels of the film's brand new trailer, Warner Bros. has now released a new poster and complete synopsis for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
