Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Comic-Con Trailer

Watch the trailer! There are definitely some treats – like the return of Hogwarts including Dumbledore as a professor, Newt Scamander as a student, and the bogart. Newt has an interesting fear. It also shows a bond between Newt and Dumbledore going back to when they were students and Dumbledore’s reluctance to move against Grindelwald. The trailer also includes the return of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts including the Thestrals last seen in the Harry Potter series.

The trailer ends with the appearance of a character mentioned in Sorcerer’s Stone and a comedic interaction with an out of his depth no-mag Jacob (Dan Fogler).

About Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Warner Bros. Pictures has provided the following Boilerplate for the movie:

Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

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 film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp. The cast also includes, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
