Additional Stills from “Crimes of Grindelwald” Released!

It hasn’t been long since we got a new still of Newt and Tina in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald from Empire magazine, but we have even more of the upcoming sequel to look at (and perhaps ponder)! USA Today included Crimes of Grindelwald in its article of must-see films of 2018, and two new stills from the film came with it!

First, we have a still of actor Jude Law as the younger Albus Dumbledore. We’ve previously seen Law in promotional photos of the full cast, but we’re now seeing young Dumbledore for the first time. Although there’s no word on who the character is behind Dumbledore in the still, he certainly looks to be deep in thought.

USA Today also published a still of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald, pictured alongside a female follower identified only as Rosier (played by Poppy Corby-Tuech). The name should ring a bell since members of the family also had ties to Lord Voldemort.

In the caption of the image provided by USA Today, Rosier is described as “mysterious.”

The dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (left, Johnny Depp) is recruiting followers like the mysterious Rosier (Poppy Corby-Tuech) for his nefarious plans in ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

If that’s anything to go by, we have a feeling that she’ll be up to no good.

Here’s a synopsis of Crimes of Grindelwald.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (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 (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.

What do you think of these new stills? What role do you think Rosier could play? Are you excited for Crimes of Grindelwald? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!

    Well, it looks as if Dumbledore’s fashion sense from the books is definitely a later-in-life affectation, if he’s lounging around in a Muggle-style suit during the 1920s. Law’s body language in the still is pure Dumbledore though – analytical with a hint of whimsy. The location looks as if it might be his office in Hogwarts, although the bloke behind him seems to be dressed as an Auror (Dawlish’s granddad, perhaps?).

    Grindelwald at least dresses the part these days – Graves’ Big Coat looked ridiculous on him, but now he looks like a revolutionary. This is a Grindelwald I can see standing on a barricade giving rabblerousing speeches. Rosier is possibly an aunt of the Evan Rosier taken down by Moody (or was that just the film?) at the end of the First Voldemort War. It might be interesting to see if the Rosiers were always Dark, or if their involvement with Grindelwald created a legacy that later drew them to Voldemort.

      I agree that I think this is his office, but it couldn’t be the headmasters office – he doesn’t gain that role until the 60s – so it would have to be his transfiguration office I assume, unless for some reason he is in the headmasters, which would have been Dippet. The telescope and stuff in the background would mean that this is either Dumbledore’s stuff that he moved into the headmaster’s office when he became that, or they are part of the headmaster’s office. Anyway, irrelevant details, lol
