The first trailer for the second instalment in the Fantastic Beasts series arrived on Tuesday with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald. We. Are. Shooketh. Hogwarts. Dumbledore. Newt. Wizards. Magic. Bad haircuts. They’re all back to remind us just how much we missed them.
At the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, we watched Graves (Colin Farrell) morph into dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) before being carted off by the Magical Congress of the United States of America. Since you can’t keep a bad wizard down, Grindelwald has now escaped and in the upcoming film, he gets straight to work amassing an army of wizards to rule over NoMags/Muggles/boring humans. Eddie Redmayne is back to avoid eye contact as Newt Scamander and has been asked by his old Hogwarts teacher, Professor Dumbledore, to help stop Grindelwald.
Of course, there’s so much more than that. For one, we’re home.
If that desk could talk.
Not only do we get to return to London, we’re also heading to Paris. Tres bien.
Plus, the gang’s all back. There’s Tina.
And her sister Queenie.
Everyone’s favourite muggle baker Jacob.
And angsty Credence.
We also get to meet Leta Lestrange IRL and find out whether she really is a taker or a giver.
Plus, Newt’s brother Theseus Scamander arrives to make saving the world a family affair.
Speaking of saving the world, Grindelwald and his crimes make an appearance in the trailer.
But our slow clap from Tuesday’s new trailer is reserved for none other than Professor Dumbledore. Growing into a hottie at Hogwarts is Longbottoming. Starting out as one is now known as Dumbledoring. Um, we’re gonna need to stay after class more often.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald flies into theatres on November 16.
