Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theaters November 16.
Set after the events of the first Fantastic Beasts movie but decades before Harry Potter's parents were born, the action moves from NY to Paris, where a young Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student and magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his friends to help track down the villainous Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).
What do you think of the trailer?
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.
The new Crimes of Grindelwald trailer opens at Hogwarts, with Dumbledore being paid a visit by some Ministry folks, asking if he's put Scamander up to something. Crimes of Grindelwald further aims to be better than the first Fantastic Beasts by embracing a "thriller quality" and moving away from that film's overly whimsical elements.
Taking place before the events of Harry Potter, the sequel will focus on the nefarious exploits of the European dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp), who is amassing power (and followers) during the 1920s and 1930s.
Ezra Miller also returns, despite appearing to have been destroyed at the end of the first film. They're joined by Claudia Kim, Zoe Kravitz, Callum Turner, with Jude Law as Dumbledore and Johnny Depp as the titular Grindelwald.
The Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams is also down to appear in the film and Brontis Jodorowsky has been cast as Nicolas Flamel. But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander.
