Just when you thought Warner Bros. Pictures has forgotten about Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, along comes a brand new Trailer. Direct from San Diego Comic-Con Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) adventures continue when we head back to familiar territory…Hogwarts!
We get to see Aldus Dumbledore (Jude Law) recruit a very young naive Newt to hunt for the dark wizard Grindlewald (Johnny Depp). After capturing him in New York, he once again, he must search for the escaped wizard. Before he does escape he share some of his plans to destroy the muggles world. We even seem him recruit his own band of nasty cretins, oh say hello to legendary Alchemist Nicolas Flamel (Brontis Jodorowsky).
This looks a visual treat with more unique creatures, this is still a JK Rowling creation so we expect nothing less. Sadly the only weak spot is Johnny Depp, he’s not selling it for us.
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 also stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will arrive in the UK, Irish and American Cinemas from 16th November.
