Newt Meets A New Wizard In The Latest Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald Photo


It’s certainly turning out to be a good week for Potter fans, now isn’t it?

Granted, there’s been nothing new regarding the Boy Who Lived himself, but spinoff series Fantastic Beasts has been thrust into the spotlight lately thanks to a new photo coming from Entertainment Weekly a few days ago and now, another new shot arriving courtesy of IGN.

Seen in the gallery below, along with EW’s pic (in case you missed it), we have an image that shows Newt Scamander and Jacob Kowalski meeting with Yusuf Kama, a new wizard who’s played by William Nadylam. The context of the scene in question is unknown, and ditto for details surrounding Nadylam’s character, but with the film quickly approaching its release date, you can expect to learn more soon.

Perhaps we’ll even get another trailer before summer comes to a close? We can only hope. Though given that the last one dropped back in March, it’s about time we see some more footage, wouldn’t you say?

In the meantime, what we can tell you with absolute certainty is that Gellert Grindelwald, Johnny Depp’s dark wizard, is poised to become a major player throughout most of Warner’s Fantastic Beasts saga – much to the chagrin of some fans – though it’s looking increasingly likely that the pic will skate around that tragic romance between Grindelwald and Dumbledore, after all. Something that Ian McKellan isn’t too pleased about, apparently.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald apparates into theaters on November 16th, and it seems that author-turned-screenwriter J.K. Rowling is already hard at work on the third installment in Warner’s prequel saga. Its ETA? Sometime in 2020, we imagine, but as always, stay tuned for more.
