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.

Each comedian takes on a figure or story from history and explains in as much factual detail as possible who they were and what they became known for.
The comedian gets as sloshed as they possibly can while attempting to still speak coherently- telling us the tale of their historical figure. As well as some of the big royal and military names through history, they touch on some of our best known writers- Byron, Potter, Shelley, and more…

Comedian and actor Rob Delaney (Catastrophe, Deadpool 2), had learned Makaton for his son Henry who was diagnosed with a brain tumour as a baby. Sadly Henry passed away in 2018 age 2 and a half, but Rob, with the help of CBeebies, honours him by showing how inclusive and accessible Makaton can be.
Check out the sweet CBeebies story told by Rob Delaney himself using Makaton sign language. The story is Ten in the Bed, written and illustrated by Penny Dale.

Firstly let me say that violin solo is everything, the soundtrack sounds absolutely amazing and I am beyond excited to see the next instalment of this fantastic series.
And now, but, but, Nagini! Given how many animagi are in the original Harry Potter series, I shouldn’t be all that surprised that the snake that become a horcrux was originally a person, a woman at that. In the trailer you see Nagini in her human form transforming into snake, we’re hoping it’ll be explained how she ended up being trapped in snake form.
