So to ease the pain, Pottermore has dropped a whole lotta spoilers via a series of blog posts.
Spoiler #1: Dumbledore and Newt Scamander join forces
As Grindelwald makes a 'dramatic escape’ from MACUSA custody, Dumbledore recruits Newt, his former student, to help him track the dark wizard down.
Dumbledore is only *mentioned* in the first flick so we're all too keen to see the younger Hogwarts headmaster in the flesh, played by Jude Law.
#Spoiler 2: Tina, Queenie, Jacob, and Credence are 3000% returning
Another blog post announced that the main four characters (the Harry, Ron and Hermione of Fantastic Beasts, if you will) will defs be returning.
Warner Bros. have also confirmed that Credence (played by Ezra Miller) will be back in a ‘mysterious’ way... whatever that means?
Spoiler #3: New characters will be introduced
As principal photography started taking place yesterday at Warner Bros. Studios, some brand new characters were #confirmed.
The new peeps to join the series include: "a bounty hunter called Grimmson, played by Icelandic actor Ingvar Sigurdsson; William Nadylam as a wizard called Yusuf Kama; Ólafur Darri Ólafsson as Skender, the owner of a wizarding circus and Claudia Kim as one of the circus’s ‘featured attractions’."
Also, we will be introduced to Newt’s older brother, Theseus Scamander played by Callum Turner as well as Zoë Kravitz's character Leta Lestrange who we first saw in a pic during the first flick (see above).
Spoiler #4: Newt's patronus plays a ~major~ part
During one of J.K. Rowling's much-loved Twitter sessions, it was revealed that Newt's patronus is a "big spoiler."
What a, excuse the pun, FANTASTIC round of spoilers!
