With Tomb Raider landing in theatres this week, movie fans around the world have been wondering if Warner Bros. will drop the first trailer for Aquaman or Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and as this teaser confirms, it will be the latter.
The first teaser for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald just landed online, revealing that the first official trailer will be released tomorrow. The brief teaser doesn’t show any footage from the film, although it does include a pretty cool new intro for the Wizarding World franchise.
Check out the teaser below:
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.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. The film stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp. The cast also includes Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
