The film’s synopsis reads:
Professor Albus Dumbledore knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers.
As for that subtitle, well your guess is as good as ours as to what those secrets of Dumbledore’s are.
Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law are both set to reprise their roles as Newt Scamander and Dumbledore respectively.
Mads Mikkelsen has replaced Johnny Depp in the role of Grindelwald.
Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler and Jessica Williams round out the rest of the cast.
David Yates is once again holding the director’s wand, with a script from Steve Kloves and J.K. Rowling.
