First Trailer, Stills Released For Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

First Trailer, Stills Released For Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

From Warner Bros., Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens November 16.

Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) starts off in Paris - whether or not he's there doing work for Dumbledore is still up the air.

"I can't move against Grindelwald; it has to be you", Law's Dumbledore tells Newt ominously. His latest recruit is Vinda Rosier, played by Poppy Corby-Tuech.

The first film focused on Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a magizoologist who tracked down magical creatures in 1926 New York City.

Of course in an effort to thwart his former friend's nefarious plans, Dumbledore enlists Newt's help. The trailer ends with both Scamander and his brother, Thesus (Callum Turner), unleashing a powerful magical attack. In David Yates' upcoming prequel "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald", the continued adventures of the semi-hapless, totally-beast-loving wizard Newt Scamander take wing, thanks to some wizarding baddies that just won't disappear.

Needless to say, it has kicked off a series of conflicts across the world, as Grindelwald emerges from the shadows to terrorize the wizarding community with his bad hair once again.

Fans have reacted strongly to the decision to cast Johnny Depp as the villain, Gellert Grindelwald, after his settling charges of domestic abuse during his contentious divorce in 2015.

Remember, there will be three more films after The Crimes of Grindelwald, so don't expect any and all questions to be answered in this one.

The movie looks like an entertaining return to the world created by J.K. Rowling, and in particular, Law's Dumbledore looks like an excellent bit of casting.

Meanwhile, actor Daniel Radcliffe who helmed the Harry Potter franchise understood fans' concerns regarding Depp's past actions, but could not condemn the people who transformed him into a household name.
