No more waiting — the first ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ trailer has arrived!

J.K. Rowling’s sequel to ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ (2016) will see Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) in Paris, where he’ll be caught up in more of the Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) saga. This time, however, he’ll be working with a familiar (albeit younger) face: Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law).

The new ‘Fantastic Beasts 2’ trailer heavily emphasizes Dumbledore’s role in this movie, as you’ll see below. He and Newt don’t only appear to be friends, but they also look to be working together to bring down Gellert Grindelwald.

Dumbledore is also featured on the movie’s first poster. We can’t help but notice the Deathly Hallows symbol too. This is, of course, a reference to Grindelwald’s pursuit of the hallows — as learned in the final Harry Potter novel.


Are you excited to return to Hogwarts and catch up with Newt, Tina, Queenie and Jacob?

‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ hits theaters this November.

Editor's Note: J.K. Rowling's film series prominently starred actor Johnny Depp who was accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife, Amber Heard, in an op-ed. On June 1, 2022, a jury found Depp was defamed by Heard. We feel it's important for our readers to be aware of this context.
