Is it November 16 yet? That was one of the first thoughts that went through my head as I watched the first teaser trailer of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald which has hit the internet today (Tuesday, March 13).
The trailer has everything we need to get excited for, Newt going to Wizarding Paris, Jacob being back with Newt (and the obliviate appears to have not worked), the Goldstein sisters are back, we meet new characters, and most importantly of all we get to see Jude Law as Professor Dumbledore and at Hogwarts (my Potter heart can’t cope).
The trailer opens with Hogwarts welcoming us home, and Aurors meeting with Dumbledore to find out what he knows about Newt Scamander heading to Paris, and that they know Scamander is working for Dumbledore. Law replies with a line which makes it so clear that although we are meeting a younger Dumbledore, his wit was always there regardless of age; “If you’d ever had the pleasure to teach him, you’d know that Newt is not a great follower of orders.”
Newt is warned that the time is approaching where he will need to pick a side, and we see Jacob and Newt heading on a new adventure. We get our first real look at Zoe Kravitz as Leta Lestrange, and we see how sumptuous Wizarding Paris is.
Dumbledore warns Newt that it will have to be Newt that moves against Johnny Depp’s Grindelwald, and the trailer ends with the Scamander brothers working side by side. Given that we have already been told that Theseus Scamander (played by Callum Turner) works for the Ministry of Magic as an Auror and he is a War Hero the fact he is working with his renegade brother something big is going down.
As this is Fantastic Beasts we see creatures old and new including Picket the Bowtruckle, and a new underwater creature, and flying creatures that look a lot like Thestrals.
Warner Bros also gave the poster for the second of five planned movies in the series, with Newt and Dumbledore on the poster and I have to say I am here and ready for the younger and very attractive Professor Dumbledore.
