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). In addition to Scamander, Law, and Depp, the movie stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, and more.

San Diego is where to find Fantastic Beasts this weekend, as the cast of The Crimes of Grindelwald came to Comic-Con to appear on a panel and drop a new trailer.

Dark: For the first time Depp speaks in the villainous role, as he says ominously: "Magic blooms only in rare souls, still we must skulk in the shadows". Depp said, "The great gift of your applause is not for me, but for yourselves", as he waved a wand over Hall H. Warner Bros. has released a new Fantastic Beasts 2 trailer, offering fans a look at the highly anticipated sequel.

Albus Dumbledore explains to Newt Scamander that he needs his help because he can not "move against Grindewald". "It is granted to those who live for higher things", he said.

Reaching its climax, the trailer then sees Newt and his brother Theseus (Callum Turner) face off against Grindelwald who asks him menacingly if Dumbeldore will mourn him.

Depp did not participate in the panel discussion and did not take questions following his appearance. What a world we would make for all of humanity.

"The moment has come to rise up and take our rightful place in the world", he added.

Redmayne also revealed some new details about the film, including that he's recruited by Dumbledore to track an escaped Grindelwald whose beliefs will remind Harry Potter fans more than a little of the villain Voldemort.

Depp is playing the evil wizard in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, a Harry Potter spin-off set in the 1920s, decades before the events of JK Rowling's books.
