BREAKING: The First Teaser Trailer For Fantastic Beasts 2 Just Dropped
Breaking News

Fantastic Beasts fans can rejoice, as the first official teaser trailer for the second magical film has just been released by Warner Bros.

Wands at the ready as here it is in all its glory...

Fantastic Beasts 2 is a prequel to the famous Harry Potter series, but it does feature some of the same beloved characters, like a much younger version of Albus Dumbledore.

Eddie Redmayne is set to reprise his role as Newt Scamander, Dumbledore will be played by Jude Law, and Gellert Grindelwald will be portrayed by Johnny Depp again.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will also follow Newt on his mission to educate wizards and witches about magical creatures and beings. From here will team up with Dumbledore to help take down Grindelwald, who used to be the future Head of Hogwarts' best friend before they turned enemies.


A few smaller clips have been released by Warner Bros. ahead of the film's release, which have just added to all the excitement for Potter-heads.

Some fans were pretty disappointed to hear that Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald wouldn't touch on Dumbedore's sexuality, though.

It is thought that Grindelwald and Dumbeldore may have been more than just friends, but it looks like director David Yates hasn't explicitly addressed this.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the film's director had this to say: "He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were young men. They fell in love with each other's ideas, and ideology and each other."


There is still quite a while to wait for the next instalment on J.K Rowling's magical saga, as the film does not actually come out until 16th of November 2018.

Maybe there is a spell we can use to make it come sooner or something...
