Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) will be back in the next film, and he will be tasked with fighting against Grindelwald. His little green creature friend Bowtruckle will be also be back to fight the good fight.

Some of the other familiar characters in the film are Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston), Queenie (Alison Sudol), Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), and Credence (zra Miller). There is also a Young Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) being introduced in the film, a character who should play a more important role in the coming movies from the franchise.
