They were also very keen to see what connections Newt Scamander’s journey connection to the Boy wizard himself, Harry Potter.
Continuing from the previous Featurette about Aldus Dumbledore, The Magic Continues Featurette shows the Harry Potter connection has always been there. This upcoming Fantastic Beasts sequel will further reveal that connection!
The early reviews are now out, those reviews have been mixed. Unfortunately, at this time no preview invite has been sent to us, so we can’t comment. Here’s hoping they will be more positive!
To tip that tease, Warner Bros has also released a New TV Spot that reveals some more snippets of new footage…
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 be released in the UK, Ireland and The USA from 16th November.
