Warner Bros. shared the title and a first cast photo on social media Thursday, exactly a year ahead of the movie's release in November 2018.
"In one year, return to the Wizarding World with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. #MagicInProgress #FantasticBeasts," the studio wrote on the Fantastic Beasts official Twitter.
Pottermore, the digital company from Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts author J.K. Rowling, also shared the news and a link to the official photo.
"A familiar world. A new story. Return to the Wizarding World with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, coming late 2018. #MagicInProgress," the company tweeted.
The photo features Gellart Grindelwald (Johnny Depp), Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), along with several other characters, including Theseus Scamander (Callum Turner) and Leta Lestrange (Zoe Kravitz).
