A new Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald footage has been released, which hints at the importance of Credence Barebone (played by Ezra Miller) in the movies.
In the footage above, J.K. Rowling reveals that the reason why everyone is heading to Paris in the movies is Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller). “For Credence, the big question now is—”, she says. Ezra himself reveals that Credence wants to know who he is.
“Credence may not know who he is yet but he needs to be found,” Dumbledore (Jude Law) tells Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne).
“The path is laid and he’s following it, the trail that will lead him to me,” Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) intones.
