Calling all Harry Potter fans, the first full length trailer for the second Fantastic Beasts film has been released, and it looks great! We’ve had plenty of teases over the past few months for the film, but now we can finally get a sneak peek at what to expect when the film is released in cinemas later this year. Eddie Redmayne returns as the ‘magizoologist’ Newt Scamander in the sequel to the 2016 hit film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second instalment in the planned five-film series and, like the first film, it sees J.K. Rowling writing the script. The movie is being directed by David Yates, who directed several of the Harry Potter films including The Deathly Hallows part 1 and 2. The new film will follow Newt as he teams up with a young Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) in order to take on the evil wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).
The first Fantastic Beasts film was a huge hit upon its release and grossed over $800 million. The Crimes of Grindelwald has had a somewhat rocky road given certain controversy that it has attracted over the course of its filming. Some have been critical of the film for casting Johnny Depp following the nature of his divorce from Amber Heard and others were disappointed to learn that the film will apparently not reference Dumbledore’s gay sexuality. Regardless, the film certainly looks like it will live up to the legacy of the Harry Potter franchise and we can’t wait to book our tickets.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is set to be released on November 16 in the UK and US.
