Pottermore posted a handy guide to the new Wizarding World logo, which features an interactive graphic sharing more about each featured wand, representing nine witches and wizards who made a huge difference to the stories of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts.

The new film picks up after the events of 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, with evil wizard Gellert Grindelwald escaping custody of magical authorities. Here's the first trailer, showing off our first look at Jude Law as the eventual Hogwarts headmaster.

The Crimes of Grindelwald is months away, but it's already the most controversial entry in the Harry Potter franchise.

Take a look at the latest from the Potter-verse below.

His appearance in the film was marred by controversy a year ago when a number of fans of the wizarding franchise expressed their disappointment in his return after he was accused of domestic violence by ex-wife Amber Heard in 2016. Casting aside, this first trailer brings the magic (yeah, I said it) and for that reason, we are excited.

Eddie Redmayne leads the cast that includes Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens in theaters on November 16th. More recently, Rowling was accused of responsibility-shirking after Yates revealed that Dumbledore's supposed gay sexuality was not being referred to in Fantastic Beasts 2, despite the fact that the film is about the wizard he was supposedly in love with as a young man.
