Fantastic Beasts 2’s Final Trailer Revealed, Including New Character
Warner Bros. have just released the final trailer for Fantastic Beasts 2 (or Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, if you’re feeling precious about it), which also introduces a new character that Harry Potter fans may recognise, or at least their name.
Check it out below.
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.
Did they really use the “a time will come when you will have to pick a side” line? Okay.
