The teaser from spin-off Harry Potter series, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald after much anticipation has finally hit the Internet! A treat to all the "Harry Potter" fans around the world, the teaser takes a nostalgic trip to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with the entry of a younger (much hotter!) Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore played by Jude Law.
If the first ‘Fantastic Beasts’ had the clammy air of a conspiracy thriller, this one feels more like a spy thriller. Everyone's favourite magiczoologist Newt Scamander played by Eddie Redmayne is sent to Paris on a secret magic business. This instalment will see Dumbledore and Newt will both team up to stop the famous sorcerer Gellert Grindelwald, who wishes to gather an army of sorcerers of the "pure blood". 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.
While the teaser is an encapsulation of everything awesome, there is one MAJOR glitch. The trailer starts with three wizards apparating onto a bridge that leads into Hogwarts. However, according to the age-old rule, nobody is able to apparate into the grounds of Hogwarts except for headmaster Albus Dumbledore!
Maybe something goes down with Grindelwald in these movies that instigate the infamous apparition ban which stays in place throughout Voldemort's rise. Maybe Dumbledore was the one who set the rule to protect the castle from the rise of dark arts and is one of the few who can break it every now and then? (It was once stated that Dumbledore has the ability to remove the rule from certain parts of the castle, which is pointed out during the 6th year's Apparition lessons in the Great Hall.)
Looks like a lot more is to be learned about this enigmatic school. Hopefully, the movie will answer all. If not, we'll have to call in Bathilda Bagshot for an exclusive scoop on Hogwarts.
Until then, check out the trailer. Youtube-us revelio!
