The Magic Continues: From Harry Potter to Fantastic Beasts Featurette

The Magic Continues: From Harry Potter to Fantastic Beasts Featurette

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will hit theaters next Friday, but you can get a taste of the (Hollywood) magic a week early.

That's the question that's been raised by numerous critics today, after Warner Bros. lifted the official review embargo for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. They're joined by Claudia Kim, Zoe Kravitz, Callum Turner, with Jude Law as Dumbledore and Johnny Depp as the titular Grindelwald.

Is this a classic case of J.K.Rowling meddling with the beloved franchise from beyond the grave?

The featurette was released on the heels of a new worldwide trailer, which gives us a new glimpse of the horrors enacted by the Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, including the shocking torture of Newt's American friend Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol).

Eddie Redmayne, who stars as magical zoologist Newt Scamander, along with Jude Law in his first outing as a young version of Hogwarts School headmaster Albus Dumbledore, walked a red carpet decorated with huge gold-coloured wands.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is directed by David Yates from a script by J.K. Rowling.

However, fans were quick to point out that the dates don't add up - as Crimes of Grindelwald is set in 1927, and everyone's favourite fictional transfiguration teacher wasn't even born then. Miller returns alongside Eddie Redmayne as the awkward and lovable Newt Scamander, Katherine Waterston as Porpentina Goldstein, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, and Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski.
