The new trailer for FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD is finally here and we’re all for it!
Featured at the top of this post, the first trailer for the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is packed with new adventures and old favorites. It all starts with an introduction to a young Albus Dumbledore, portrayed by Jude Law. The Ministry of Magic seems to think Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) is on a mission for Dumbledore, but the beloved professor isn’t admitting anything.
The trailer then shifts to Newt in Paris, where he’s tracking down Grindelwald with the help of old friends like Tina and Jacob, who has somehow found himself back in the mix. Of course, there’s plenty of action, gorgeous new settings, and magical creatures aplenty along the way!
Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.
At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp. The cast also includes, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. Slated for release on November 16, 2018, the film will be distributed worldwide in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
