Entertainment Weekly has released an exclusive new image of young Newt Scamander (Joshua Shea) and Professor Dumbledore from the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The scene is presumably a flashback to the events surrounding Scamander’s expulsion from Hogwarts. As we learned in the first film, Scamander was “kicked out of Hogwarts for endangering human life,” according to Percival Graves (Colin Farrell), which likely had something to do with a magical beast.

We’ll have to wait until November for the full story, when The Crimes of Grindelwald is released in theaters.

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
