Today EW revealed 10 new photos from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and they’re lovely. In them, we have little bits and pieces of the plot. But not only that, we’re also introduced to a few new places and a new beast we’ll get to know.

While some of the photos seem familiar, given that we’ve seen the scenes in the trailers, there’s some new bits. One of those includes Leta Lestrange (Zoë Kravitz) at Hogwarts, looking at her desk. You can see an L + N in there, pointing to her and Newt’s (Eddie Redmayne)  school relationship. Is she having regrets? Also there’s a Deathly Hallows symbol carved in it. Is she tied to the hallows in some way? Another photo has the cutest detail of all; Newt has a newspaper clipping of Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston) becoming an Auror. Seems their first encounter has left him with a bit of a crush. Speaking of crushes, Nagini (Claudia Kim) and Credence (Ezra Miller) seem to be developing a deep bond. 


We’re also formerly introduced to one of the beasts we’ll see in the film – a Leucrotta. Similar in appearance to a deer or moose, the fantastical animal is seemingly a new friend of Newt’s and now Jacob’s (Dan Fogler). Drawings on Newt’s trunk might also show some other beasts we may see. Though it’s likely he’s searching for them. When he’s not tasked with finding Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) that is. Newt will eventually team up with his crush Tina and explore the French Ministry of Magic. What are they searching for in there? Some background information on Credence? Maybe Grindelwald associates? Perhaps something Dumbledore (Jude Law) sent Newt to find? 

Newt and Tina won’t be the only ones in Paris, though. Queenie (Alison Sudol) has made her way there for “mysterious purposes”. We’ve seen in her in the trailer touching a symbol of a raven – the symbol that’s been connected to Leta Lestrange in the promotional material. Is she seeking answers on a prophecy involving the mysterious Lestrange? Will see be the one to proclaim the prophecy? And will be reunited with her funny no-Maj Jacob? So many questions, so little time.

Check out all the images below and let us know what you think of them. What details do you see?  Have any theories? Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more magical news. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be in theaters November 16th, 2018.
