The teaser trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald that was released in March was perfect in that it whet our appetites for more. Thankfully, we didn’t have wait long to get another magical, and magic-filled, look at what the movie holds in store.
The new trailer was released during the Warner Brothers’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The studio usually takes up a large portion of the Hall H schedule by loading their entire geek slate into one block of time. This year, they kicked things off with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
Just like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald looks to be a lot of fun. This time around, Newt (Eddie Redmayne) is working to bring an end to Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) under the tutelage of Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law).
Here’s the official synopsis:
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, Zoë Kravitz, Ezra Miller, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald is scheduled to hit theaters on November 16, 2018.
