The first trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The crimes of Grindelwald, was released late in the day on Tuesday and it has left Potterheads all over the world in a frenzy.
A trailer so magical, it not only gives the fans a best look at the upcoming movie but also has an essence of nostalgia to it. All aboard the Hogwarts express because we are going back to our favorite school of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The trailer begins with a sweeping shot of Hogwarts, a sight we have often seen in the eight Harry Potter movies. Seconds later what appear to be a bunch of aurors, arrive at Hogwarts to meet with a young professor Dumbledore, played by Jude Law.
Who would have thought that the grey haired, moon spectacled Hogwarts headmaster would be reimagined in such a way? But such is the world of J.K. Rowling.
The aurors then question Dumbledore about the whereabouts of the magizoologist, Newt Scamander. Reprising his role as the introverted but compassionate magizoologist is Eddie Redmayne with a lot of new tricks up his sleeve. Not to forget, his suitcase full of magical creatures.
The official synopsis of the film reads:
Evidently, both Dumbledore and Newt Scamander are working together to put an end to the havoc wreaked by none other than the notorious magician, Gellert Grindelwald.
We are given peeks into both old as well as new characters. Reprising their roles from the first instalment are Katherine Waterston as Tina, Dan Fogler as Jacob or more lovingly the no-maj, Ezra Miller as Credence and Alison Sudol as Queenie. A glimpse of Leta Lestrange played by Zoe Kravitz is also shown.
“I can’t move against Grindelwald,” Dumbledore tells Newt, “It has to be you.” Will Newt and his
posse be able to stop Grindelwald once and for all? Looks like we have to wait until the film releases
in the theatres on November 16.
