Adjust Comment Print

Subtitled The Crimes of Grindelwald, it sees Eddie Redmayne return in the role of "magizoologist" Newt Scamander in the second of the projected five films in the JK Rowling-scripted Harry Potter spinoff series. It arrives in theaters on November 16.

Following the tale of 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the trailer stars magical zoologist Newt Scamand, played by Eddie Redmayne, who will be seemingly continuing his quests for mythical beasts.

As attractive as this looks, The Crimes of Grindelwald is also by far the most controversial in the Harry Potter universe so far.

Fantastic Beasts announced via Twitter that the trailer will be released on Tuesday, March 13.

No detail exists accidentally in the wizarding world of J.K. Rowling, and there are plenty to analyze in the first teaser trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Other plans for the franchise include continued promotion of the actual Wizarding World attraction at Universal Studios; a new Harry Potter cruise line; some new console games, and more.

His appearance in the film was marred by controversy past year when a number of fans of the wizarding franchise expressed their disappointment in his return after he was accused of domestic violence by ex-wife Amber Heard in 2016. The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.

She said: "Based on our understanding of the circumstances, the filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies".
