Who Knew Jude Law Would Look So Perfect As Dumbledore?

The title for the sequel to "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" was revealed today and it has "Harry Potter" fans going insane with excitement.

Warner Bros. has finally released the first cast photo - and a new name - for the next installment in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise.

As you can see, the cast photo also provides another glimpse at Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald. After the dark wizard Grindelwald is captured by the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) and Newt, Grindelwald makes good on his threat and escapes custody. In addition, Claudia Kim joins the cast as Maledictus, who is a "carrier of the blood curse that destines her ultimately to turn into a beast".

Harry Potter author and Fantastic Beasts screenwriter JK Rowling previously said that Dumbledore was gay and harboured feelings for Grindelwald, calling his love "a great tragedy".

The most exciting addition to the group is Jude Law as the young Albus Dumbledore sporting a dark beard, long blue jacket and slightly scowling face.

Eddie Redmayne will return as main character Newt Scamander, alongside Katherine Waterston and Dan Fogler. It's hard to hear The Crimes of Grindelwald without thinking of the potential crimes of Depp, and fans made that abundantly clear on Twitter.

Getting to see Jude Law as baby Dumbledore does sound like fun, but not at the expense of the actual fantastic beasts that made the new series sound so appealing from the start. On his arm is one Leta Lestrange (Zoë Kravitz) who, according to the official press release, is Theseus's fiancée. In the forthcoming sequel, Dumbledore will recruit his favorite former student, Newt Scamander, to help him take down Grindelwald's rising evil army.

So, what will these two adversaries be up to when the film gets released on November 16, 2018?

After much anticipation, the title for Fantastic Beasts 2 has been revealed.
