The 'Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald' final trailer has arrived and we're sweating

It only bloody confirms a massive fan theory and ACCIO, HYPE!

By Susannah Guthrie

Harry Potter fans, awake from your deep slumber because the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald final trailer has arrived to fill that Harry-sized hole in your life.

The film's tagline is, "The Wizarding World you know, the story you don't," and if you don't get full-body chills just reading that, something is very wrong. Sorry.

The movie hits Australian cinemas on November 15, 2018, and this two-and-a-half minute trailer is the biggest taste we've had so far.


It's been a while since the first Fantastic Beasts film, which served as a prequel to the Harry Potter books and provided a backstory for Hogwarts textbook author Newt Scamander, played by Eddie Redmayne.

But we simply have to take a minute to discuss the most hectic moment from the new trailer...

It shows a young witch trapped in a cage at a magical circus. Just before she transforms into a massive serpent, Credence, who is watching from the crowd, utters the name "Nagini."


Sorry for shouting but yeah, hectic.

Officially losing our shit.

J.K. Rowling took to Twitter to reveal how Nagini became a serpent. It's because of a condition called Maledictuses which is passed down from mother to daughter and is only found in witches. She also said she's been waiting 20 years (!) to let us know Nagini was really a witch all along.

We also need to talk about 'Young Dumbledore' and how Jude Law has made one of our favourite ever literary characters a total zaddy.

The rest of the cast is also killer, especially the divine Zoe Kravitz, but there is some controversy surrounding the decision to cast Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald, following allegations of domestic abuse levelled against him by his ex-wife Amber Heard.

Given Depp has denied the allegations, J.K. Rowling issued the following statement on his casting: "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."
