J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World returns to theaters in November.

Warner Bros. has released the first teaser trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, offering our first look at Jude Law in action as a young Albus Dumbledore. The Harry Potter spin-off serves as a sequel to 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and is set to apparate into theaters on November 16, 2018.

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

Check out the teaser trailer below!

The movie comes from returning director David Yates and screenwriter by J.K. Rowling. The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second of five planned films in the Fantastic Beasts series. Cast members include Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald, Zoë Kravitz as Leta Lestrange, Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein, Ezra Miller as Credence Barebone, and Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore. Dumbledore was previously played by Richard Harris and Michael Gambon in the Harry Potter series.
