Dumbledore's gonna be there!

The best headmaster Hogwarts ever had will show up, looking a lot younger than when we've seen him before, played by Jude Law from the Sherlock Holmes movies

There are a bunch of new characters!

Newt's brother Theseus will appear, as will Leta Lestrange, a mysterious figure from his past (who was seen in a photo in the first film), and one with a familiar surname...

There might be some Death Eaters in there!

Two new characters joining the movie have the names Rosier and Travers, both of which are the names of Death Eaters that served Voldemort...

J.K. Rowling has a pretty great chair on set!

And so she should – she's written the movie, and the next 3 in the series! That's right – there are going to be at least 5 Fantastic Beasts films, and she's writing the lot!

They've shown us Newt's visa!

Turns out Newt is a Pisces, born in the Chinese year of the dragon!

There are some pretty cool props on set!

We're not saying we'd try and nick this sign if we were there... but we'd probably try and nick this sign if we were there!

It's not actually got a title yet!

It's officially known as "Untitled Fantastic Beasts Sequel", but we're confident someone will remember to change it in time – that's a really silly name for a film!
