Yates did a great job of differentiating his Potter films visually from one another, so I'm mighty curious to see what kind of aesthetic tone he strikes with The Crimes of Grindelwald. Although he's obviously a little more lively than he was in the Harry Potter movies, he's still the same mischief-maker with a penchant for ignoring orders. There's also a new social media campaign asking fans to post photos of themselves with their wands, called #WandsReady.
The anticipated followup to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them takes us back to Hogwarts, where a young Professor Dumbledore (a cheeky Jude Law) is being interrogated by Ministry of Magic officials about the whereabouts of magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne).
"I can't move against Grindelwald", Dumbledore says near the end of the trailer. Definitely because they're setting that up for a later film, and not because J.K. Rowling just feels like saying some shit now and again because she's bored. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theaters November 16.
The first trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald dropped Tuesday (March 13), giving a peek into the sequel to the Harry Potter series prequel. The film stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore, Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald, Katherine Waterston as Tina, Alison Sudol as Queenie, Dan Fogler as Jacob, Ezra Miller as Credence, Zoë Kravitz as Leta Lestrange and Callum Turner as Theseus Scamander. But Newt doesn't realize how risky this mission will be, and battle lines are drawn within the increasingly fractured wizarding world.
