The final official trailer has arrived for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and it’s a must see for fans of J.K. Rowling’s ever-expanding Wizarding World.
The excellent new trailer shows off a number of very enticing moments from the upcoming film, which finds Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) attempting to gather pure-blood wizards together to rule over non-magical beings and Albus Dumbledore (played by Jude Law) recruiting former student Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to bring him down. Why doesn’t Dumbledore take him down himself? Well, there’s a moment with the Mirror of Erised in the trailer you may want to see.
The trailer also features a certain Scamandar family member and, wait for it… Nagini. Yes, Nagini, Lord Voldemort’s pet. The film finds Nagini in human form, a member of the traveling Circus Arcanus. “You’ve only seen her as a Horcrux. In this, she’s a wonderful and vulnerable woman who wants to live,” actress Claudia Kim (Marco Polo) has told EW. “She wants to stay a human being and I think that’s a wonderful contrast to the character.”
And for those wondering, no, Nagini is not an Animagus.
Not an Animagus. A Maledictus. Big difference. https://t.co/JwVVNnvVQU

Official rundown for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald:
Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.
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.
