Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald looks, well, fantastic!
There was something in the air at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday. There's even a small hint at Dumbledore's relationship with Grindelwald, though the movie will frustratingly not show any more than that.
The new trailer kicks off with a young Newt Scamander (Joshua Shea) confessing to Professor Dumbledore that he's scared. Eddie Redmayne waved a wand around like any self-respecting Harry Potter fan would.
As its title suggests, the plot centers on the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (played by Johnny Depp), who has escaped custody and has set out "to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings".
As popular as the Harry Potter films are, they oddly were never much of a mainstay at Comic-Con.
It's not just these characters who have made a welcome return, as Newt's creatures like Niffler can be seen in the trailer, as well as some exciting new additions.
Later in the panel, asked what she would do with her own magic powers, actress Zoë Kravitz quickly answered she'd "impeach Trump", eliciting laughter and cheers from Hall H's enormous crowd.
Ezra Miller joined in, announcing he'd want to destroy the patriarchy, which was also met with a roar. The panel also premiered the latest trailer for the upcoming film, which gives us a look at young Newt Scamander in Young Dumbledore's Defense Against the Dark Arts course. Though he is playing Grindelwald, he was not scheduled to be part of the panel.
Reaching its climax, the trailer then sees Newt and his brother Theseus (Callum Turner) face off against Grindelwald who asks him menacingly if Dumbeldore will mourn him. Now would be an excellent time to dust off some books and get to reading before the movie hits theaters this November.
"The moment has come for us to rise up and take our rightful place in the world", he said.
