New Fantastic Beasts Trailer Conjures Up More… Fantastic Beasts

Adjust Comment Print

Fantastic Beasts announced via Twitter that the trailer will be released on Tuesday, March 13.

J.K. Rowling is writing each of the "Harry Potter" spinoff movies, which is set decades before the original series. You can check out the full trailer above.

"As David Yates, long-time Potter director, has already said, we naturally considered the possibility of recasting".

The first teaser for the second "Fantastic Beasts" movie is here. Crimes of Grindelwald further aims to be better than the first Fantastic Beasts by embracing a "thriller quality" and moving away from that film's overly whimsical elements.

At the conclusion of "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them", Newt and his pals revealed dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (played by Colin Farrell in disguise, then Depp), who was soon captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America). But Grindelwald isn't the only one to return from hiding: Credence (Ezra Miller) the Obscurus who almost destroyed NY, is back.

New cast-members include Callum Turner, who plays Newt's older brother Theseus, Zoe Kravitz who plays Leta Lestrange and Claudia Kim, whose mysterious character is "known as a "Maledictus": someone who suffers from a 'blood curse" that turns them into a beast'. The trailer also gives us our first glimpses of Jude Law as a youthful Albus Dumbledore, who seems to be working behind the scenes with Newt to fight Grindelwald.

The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp. That film's result was a queasy mixture of pros and cons, and there's a fear that The Crimes of Grindelwald will be more of the same.
