Harry Potter may have ended, but it’s still near and dear to our hearts. Luckily, we’ve still got the spin-off series Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. Not only do we have that film, but we also have a sequel coming in the near future. And we’ve just gotten our very first peek at the first promotional still from the movie.
A photo tweeted by the official Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them account shows off a very official-looking travel application for main character Newt Scamander, who appears to have received a denial by the Ministry of Magic. Naughty, naughty!

The sequel finds Grindelwald back on the loose as he starts pulling more over to his side, putting wizards above any other non-magical beings. The only one who may be able to keep him from wreaking any more havoc on the world is none other than Albus Dumbledore himself, according to the official synopsis.
That’s about all we get to see of the movie just yet, but even a tiny morsel like a denial for Scamander is something to get us talking. The Fantastic Beasts sequel will bring Eddie Redmayne back into the fold as Newt, with Johnny Depp taking up the role as the main antagonist Grindelwald. Jude Law will play young Dumbledore, and the rest of the cast will be rounded out by personalities like Zoe Kravitz, Katherine Waterston, and Ezra Miller, who all appeared in the first movie.
The sequel to Fantastic Beasts is currently slated for a Nov. 16, 2018 release. That’s just about a year we have to wait, right? No big deal. Totally no big deal.
