We recently saw yet another San Diego Comic Con as it came and went away, and with that, we have now been treated to a number of trailers to some of the most exciting and highly-anticipated upcoming releases. One of these was the second trailer for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindlewald and Where to Find Them sequel. There was a lot going on between the frames, and we have amalgamated everything that quickly passed by in the trailer and below is a condensed description of things to look forward to.
Just hands up, the trailer of Fantastic Beasts: Crimes Of Grindlewald is what exactly you say WTF at. Nonetheless, out of amazement. There is young Dumbledore, an evil Johnny Depp, Shape Shifting snake women, blue fires, flying monsters, and yes, of course, a highly alluring Zoe Kravitz. In this second edition to the prequel trilogy of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, things are inching more towards darkness. Much like they used to back in the Harry Potter days.
Fantastic Beasts: Crimes Of Grindlewald stars Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Zoe Kravitz, Ezra Miller, Callum Turner, and Claudia Kim. David Yates‘sure-to-be fantastic sequel opens in theaters on November 16th. There are several familiar locations up for the exhibit, and Warner Bros was keener on dropping potential plot bombs this time.
The trailer opens up with a strong nostalgic essence; Young Newt is being instructed by a familiar wizarding face. Yes, you guessed it right, franchise newcomer Jude Law stars in the film as the cool bearded Dumbledore, who is just as committed to the world of magic as we normally found him to be. This time things get more dynamic as the franchise gets its big bad in the masterful virtuoso Johnny Depp, who nails it as Grindlewald.
There are more life inspired beasts who are more exotic than ever before. Jacob is surrounded by beasts- an eagle and a bizarre looking reindeer- who have probably popped out of Newt’s briefcase. Newt is also seen riding kelpie inspired sea monsters. Thestrals now run carriages and they are being pursued by just more thestrals.
Ezra Miller’s comeback is a subject for utter delight. It was highly unanticipated that he would make a comeback post the supposed death in part one’s climax. Leta Lestrange, a probable relative of Bellatrix Lestrange joins the merchandise in a more pivotal role. It remains ambiguous as to if she would also share Bellatrix’s chaos for power. But regardless of whether she does or not she will surely have a thing with Newt. The trailer then shows us all the returning characters from the first; Newt, Tina, Queenie, and my personal favorite Jacob Kowalski.
The younger Albus Dumbledore is too dapper for Dumbledore. Curious, gentlemanly and as mysterious as ever he safely remits surreal vibes. His political game too is stronger than ever. Turner also joins as Newts brother Theseus, someone who’d aid Newt in his graveyard missions.
The White Cliffs of Dover, Paris, the elegant ballrooms, the hideaways in the sewer systems do not fall short on detailing. They leave subtle hints as to what the plot would like for instance the sewer hideaway tells that the Lestrange lineage will a point of focus on the show. There is an elaborate circus, archived vintage museums, and of course a lot of cages that grab our attention.
Vinda Rosier (Poppy Corby-Tuech) and Grindelwald are all prepped up with their devious plans. Depp does fine as the series main villain, often scaring us off. But the trailer tries to resist his true evil potential. As like there is severe reluctance to show what surprises would Depp bring with his Grindlewald.
Overall, this trailer of Fantastic Beasts is enthralling, and the film can be counted on to greatly outperform the first installment.
