The trailer for the ninth film in the extended Harry Potter universe, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald takes writer J.K. Rowling's fans to familiar locales, the main one being Hogwarts. Those who are subscribed to the Daily Prophet were aware that Jude Law was to make a dashing entry as the younger version of Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore.
The second movie in the Harry Potter spin-off series debuted its full first-look yesterday, to a mostly positive reception from fans.
In the Potter series, magic is in place to prevent apparition at Hogwarts - to keep evil wizards like Voldemort and Grindelwald out of the school. However, director David Yates caused a bit of an uproar amongst fans when he said the film might not be directly addressing that relationship. But to know what this means actually, you will have to wait till November.
Here's the official synopsis of the movie - "In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead".
The studio released a short video yesterday announcing that the first teaser trailer for the film was coming sometime today. Grindelwald has a mission to raise pureblood wizards to rule the no-maj (non-magical beings).
In this new opus, Dumbledore and Newt will both team up to stop the famous sorcerer Gellert Grindelwald, who wishes to gather an army of sorcerers of the "pure blood". In fact, some of them are quite excited to see young Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. We see characters from the first film return - Katherine Waterston returns as Tina, Dan Fogler as Jacob, Ezra Miller as Credence and Alison Sudol as Queenie.
Now for the sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Scamander and his friends return to Europe and they will be joined by a very friendly face.
