The first trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has just dropped and there are some exciting Harry Potter references including a young Dumbledore and an early Hogwarts.
The first trailer for the follow up to J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts has finally been revealed. The second movie, 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald', is due to be released in November 2018 and will feature Jude Law debut as young Dumbledore, while Johnny Depp reprises his role as Grindelwald.
The movie, directed by David Yates, will also star Ezra Miller, Claudia Kim (Theseus Scamander), Zoë Kravitz (Leta Lestrange), Callum Turner, Katherine Waterston, Eddie Redmayne, Dan Fogler, and Alison Sudol.
This latest movie set in the Harry Potter universe went into production earlier this year and as the title suggest, will focus on the crimes of Gellert Grindelwald.
At the end of the first movie, we saw Grindelwald unmasked and captured by the Magical Congress, but it seems he's not going to be behind bars for long. This movie will follow the evil wizard, who's intent on building an army of pure-blood wizards who will take over the muggle world.
Anyone who's read the Harry potter series or seen the movies, knows that Grindelwald is out to cause trouble and that during one point in his life befriended Dumbledore and tried to recruit him to his cause.
The clip features a young Professor Dumbledore played by Jude Law. We all know Dumbledore and the sacrifice he made for the wizarding world in 'Half-Blood Prince', and we learn about his troubled friendship with Grindelwald in 'Half-Blood Prince'. Now fans will get to see how a young Dumbledore enlists the help of his former student, Newt Scamander to try to defeat Grindelwald.
We also get a glimpse of Hogwarts form a time gone by. So, it seems that the characters in the next movie will be visiting the familiar old castle, including the famous Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom, which we also see in the trailer.
We also see the use of a Deluminator, the return of Credence, and what appears to be the Obscurus, in the form of a mysterious black fog.
As well as Hagwarts, two other locations stand out in the trailer. Firstly, London where we see Newt and Dumbledore. And also Paris, where we see a dome-shaped building,
In the first Fantastic Beasts movies we were introduced to the Magical Congress of the United States of America, the American version of the Ministry of Magic. Could we be about to meet the French version? Perhaps the Ministre de la Magie.
