Next 'Fantastic Beasts' movie thrills fans with return to Hogwarts

Next 'Fantastic Beasts' movie thrills fans with return to Hogwarts

The trailer starts with three wizards apparating onto a bridge that leads in to Hogwarts. No seriously, what has taken you so long?! Go! It has nearly been seven years since we saw the school, as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 released in 2011. We only see one quick shot of Grindelwald, but perhaps that is on objective, because of the increasing backlash against star Johnny Depp, who plays him in the movies. Unlike the Harry Potter series which was based in England, the spinoff was set in New York, USA and was about how Scamander lands in trouble with Muggles and wizards thanks to his animals and his dark encounter with the bad wizard, Gellert Grindelwald.

This scene has sparked confusion on Twitter, with many fans questioning how on earth they were able to apparate within Hogwarts grounds, when it is well-known Harry Potter lore that you can not...

We also get a brief but rather sinister new look at Johnny Depp as powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, Dumbledore's once childhood companion, who we last saw captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), after Newt unearthed him having been working right in their ranks while wearing Colin Farrell's face. Dumbledore was the administrator of the court, with the title of Chief Warlock, as well as the British Youth Representative to the court when he was younger.

Redmayne is joined by returning cast members Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Alison Suodl, and Zoe Kravitz. The second installment of the Fantastic Beasts franchise will start from where the first one left off. It took the summary down when it realised its mistake, but not before The Leaky Cauldron caught it and published it on its blog. "I can't move against Grindelwald", Dumbledore tells Newt, "It has to be you". The least interesting part of "Where to Find Them" is all the grumpy stuff, and it seems like we're going to get a lot more of that, rather than any of the fun stuff with Newt and Jacob playing magic Pokémon.

Do you have any theories about Crimes of Grindelwald?
