The first movie, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them", which was written by Rowling, made $814 million at the global box offices after it was released in November 2016. If you're already a fan of the Wizarding World, it's like being welcomed home again, and you just can't buy that sort of popularity. Released on Tuesday, March 13 as promised, the video debuts Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore.
"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)".
One jubilant fan wrote: "I was already super hyped for #FantasticBeasts but now it's on a whole new level", while another overjoyed viewer commented: 'My wand is so ready omg the trailer is incredible! And going by the trailer, it looks to be much more tied into the Potterverse than the last film, including an appearance from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!
With spellbinding action aplenty, fans were quick to show their appreciation about the sequel, with many taking to Twitter to voice their excitement. He is set to direct the remaining three movies rounding out the "Fantastic Beasts" saga, with Rowling as screenwriter. They're joined by franchise newcomers Claudia Kim, and Callum Turner.
The film is the second of a planned five and will introduce us properly to Grindelwald, and will set audiences down a path that will lead to an epic battle between Dumbledore and Grindelwald. So there's no reason why the apparating in Fantastic Beasts should be incorrect. While Dumbledore claims to the Ministry of Magic officials that Newt is not working under his orders, we know that these two are indeed working together to stop Grindelwald.
