Warner Bros unleashed four new trailers for their biggest upcoming releases on the last day of the San Diego Comic Con on Saturday. One of the most exciting of them all turned out to be the second trailer for Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald. The film is a sequel to 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The trailer kicks off with a heartwarming scene at Hogwarts. Jude Law, who plays a young Professor Dumbledore, is conducting a class with a boggart. When it is young Newt Scamander’s turn, the boggart takes the form of an office desk. It turns out Newt’s worst fear is working in an office. We would feel the same if we too lived in a world as magical and as beautiful as his.
The trailer later takes us to Johnny Depp, who plays the notorious criminal Gellert Grindelwald. He is out and about seducing the magicals into forming a legion, taking over the world and overthrowing the muggles from power. However, Dumbledore knows just what to do.
He recruits Newt (Eddie Redmayne) for a plan that requires him to chase after Grindelwald and bring him to justice for his crimes. He is aided by the faithful Tina (Katherine Waterston), Jacob (Dan Dogler) and Queenie (Alison Sudol).
The trailer climaxes with Grindelwald racing through the streets of London on a carriage driven by thestrals and waving the Elder Wand in his hand. There are new, bigger, fiercer beasts and few cute, lovable older ones.
The film releases on 16 November, 2018.
