First Look at Young Newt For ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’

Fantastic Beasts is about to make a return, and Newt Scamander will be joined by the likes of Albus Dumbledore, the wizard finds himself caught in the midst of a brewing war. Oh, and it seems audiences will also get a peek into the character’s history if a new still from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald says anything.

Not long ago, Entertainment Weekly shared an exclusive look at a young version of Newt Scamander. The image confirms the awaited sequel will enter the wizard’s youth and the mentor-pupil relationship Newt built with Professor Dumbledore during his short time at Hogwarts.

As you can see, Newt is pictured in his draping Hogwarts robes while Dumbledore stands behind him. The boy, who was clearly sorted into Hufflepuff, is seen pointing his wand at something unknown to us. Newt looks focused as he prepares to shoot off a spell, but Dumbledore doesn’t look too concerned. The young man looks downright calm in his sweater vest, more like he isn’t expecting Newt to pull it off, so that definitely has to count for something.

Whatever the reason is, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will give us flashbacks into Newt’s past, and fans are sure the scenes will be epic.

Starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Zoe Kravitz, Claudia Kim, Johnny Depp, and Jude Law, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens November 16, followed by the yet-to-be-named Fantastic Beasts 3 on November 20, 2020.
