We certainly got that, but the reveal of Gellert Grindelwald as the Big Bad of this franchise set Fantastic Beasts on a collision course with Potter lore that only gets more explicit in the sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. And yes, there's more to it than just hot, young Dumbledore.
The cast list for the second film, The Crimes of Grindelwald, was recently released and it included someone rather unexpected: Professor McGonagall.
"Hagrid. And I'm secretly hoping that at some wonderful point, maybe if I say it enough times to J.K. Rowling, like a little mini Hagrid might arrive."
However, Potter-mad fans have pointed out that the new movie is set in 1927 and the fictional head of Gryffindor House wasn't even born then. They're joined by Claudia Kim, Zoe Kravitz, Callum Turner, with Jude Law as Dumbledore and Johnny Depp as the titular Grindelwald.
The featurette was released on the heels of a new worldwide trailer, which gives us a new glimpse of the horrors enacted by the Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, including the shocking torture of Newt's American friend Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol). Following Newt's adventures in New York City, he returns to London and agrees to help a young Dumbledore to track down Grindelwald, who has escaped imprisonment and is swiftly gaining followers for his plans to take control of the wizarding world.
The Crimes of Grindelwald, ' our crew of beast-loving wizards and loveable muggles have a lot to fear in the form of the white-haired title character.
