If you've been counting down the days until you got a glimpse of what to expect from the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, you're in luck.

Nearly a year after the premiere of the first Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Warner Bros. has released a first look at the next film in the five-part franchise and it's making us questions everything.

Last night, the official Fantastic Beasts Twitter account tweeted a picture of magizoologist Newt Scamander (played by Eddie Redmayne)'s travel permit application which, from the looks of it, has been denied.

However, with a 'pending' stamp on the documents, there might be hope he'll be able to travel.

'Travel where?' you ask.

Well, from the looks of the image there appears to be a note on the top that reads 'uncooperative and evasive on reason for last trip', following his somewhat disastrous stay in New York in the first film, so perhaps he's hoping to travel back to the Big Apple.

What's also of interest is Scamander's birthday on the documents that reads '24 February', so could this be a clue as to when we should expect to see the trailer for the new film?

According to IMDb, the sequel will premiere on 16 November 2018 and will star Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore, and Green Room star Callum Turner, who will play Newt's brother.

Earlier this year, fan site Pottermore announced it was hosting an open casting call for teenagers (aged 13 to 16) to play young versions of five main characters (Newt Scamander, Leta Lestrange, Sebastian, Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald) in the second film.

Just a year to wait until the film, then. How fantastically intriguing.
