Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hit theaters late last year, and while it generally received plenty of positive reviews, it still had its fair share of criticism. The world it showed off may not have been as whimsical as its predecessor, it’s plotting a bit slow, and our main character, Newt Scamander didn’t go through an emotional arc of any kind — which is a big no-no in storytelling 101.

That being said, there was one character who helped to ground the entire film, emotionally, and that was the character of Jacob — a man who dreamed of owning a bakery one day. He became the conduit through which the audience viewed the film, and his genuinely good-natured personality really gave us someone to root for.

However, right before the closing credits, audiences saw poor Jacob get his knowledge of the Wizarding World removed from his memory. It was definitely a sad moment, and initially raised concerns that he would not be back — though we know now that he is.

Total Film has a new image from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and in it, we see Newt Scamander with Jacob trailing behind him. Apparently, this man simply can’t escape the Wizarding World.

The official synopsis for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is below:

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens in 1927, a few months after Newt helped to unveil and capture the infamous Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. However, as he promised he would, Grindelwald has made a dramatic escape and has been gathering more followers to his cause—elevating wizards above all non-magical beings. The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore. But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander. The adventure reunites Newt with Tina, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world.”
