Last Trailer for ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’

This is reportedly the last trailer for the latest spin off in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World – Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Eddie Redmayne returns as the wizarding creature lover Newt Scamander, who has been tasked by Dumbledore (Jude Law) to hunt down and kill Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).

This effects-heavy trailer shows a lot of Johnny Depp, heavily driving the narrative that he is the biggest threat the wizarding world has faced at this time – until “he shall not be named” shows up.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released in theaters on November 16 of this year!
