'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' trailer takes Potterheads back to Hogwarts

The first trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the sequel to 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, itself a spin-off of the Harry Potter series, was released online late Tuesday. The trailer for the next Wizarding World franchise installment takes fans on a brief trip back to Hogwarts. It's the first time we're returning to the school since 2011's Deathly Hallows, and we're there for a reason - to meet Jude Law's young Professor Albus Dumbledore for the first time (in the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom, no less). The film did quite well at the box office earning a whopping $814M worldwide. Earlier, in the first part, Grindelwald was imprisoned but now that he has escaped Dumbledore senses danger in future. By his side is Vinda Rosier (Poppy Corby-Tuech) who is one of Grindelwald's most trusted followers.

The teaser hints at the beginning of the Global Wizarding War surrounding Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) and Newt Scamander's (Eddie Redmayne) role in the rising conflict that eventually leads to the showdown between Grindelwald and Dumbledore. Writer/Creator J.K. Rowling wrote the screenplay for the film. We are then given peeks into both new and returning characters including Scamander's love interest Porpetina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston), his "no-maj" friend Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), Queenie (Alison Sudol), Leta Lestrange (Zoë Kravitz) and Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller) who seems to have survived his death from the last film.

More drama, more fantastic beasts, more wizards and witches, and more magic! "I can't even express to you how happy I am that we're going to be seeing that lovely castle again", commented Dhanya Binoy, another excited fan. Let us know in comments below.
