Indeed we have — the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was released on March 13, and it features Hogwarts — check it out below. Much of the focus lies not on Newt, but with Dumbledore and Grindelwald — both of whom appear to be juking it out for wizarding supremacy. Same old, then. Rowling in the clip. The pair once sought to find the Deathly Hallows together.
In the pre-Harry Potter sequel, fans will get to know young Dumbledore, but initial takes by critics aren't all that magical. Harry Potter fans, prepare to dive back into the magical world before The Boy Who Lived was ever born. The second Fantastic Beasts movie has delivered controversy since the beginning, since Johnny Depp and his dark wizard character, Gellert Grindelwald, has a much larger role in this film than in the first. The casting of Depp was criticized because his ex-wife, Amber Heard , accused him of physical and verbal abuse. Heard and Depp later issued a joint statement that implied they'd made peace, but that didn't smooth over Depp's reputation with some Potter fans. But on the magical side, the film will take the story back to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, that beloved place that taught Harry, Hermione, Ron and so many other would-be witches and wizards.

A joint British and American production, it is a spin-off and prequel to the Harry Potter film series , and is produced and written by J. Rowling in her screenwriting debut, inspired by her guide book of the same name. It is the first installment in the Fantastic Beasts film series , and ninth overall in the Wizarding World franchise, that began with the Harry Potter films. As Newt listens to her speaking about witches and wizards being real and dangerous, a Niffler escapes from Newt's magically expanded suitcase, which houses various magical creatures. As Newt attempts to capture the Niffler, he meets No-Maj cannery worker and aspiring baker Jacob Kowalski, and they unwittingly swap suitcases.
Poor reviews and the worst box office result of the entire series was probably not what Warner Bros was expecting when it planned a five-movie series for Fantastic Beasts, so will we end up getting all five films? At the moment, it seems that way as Warner Bros is confident that it knows how to make the third movie a success, with Rowling having an "incredible vision of where she wants to go" with the whole series. But what do we know about the future now? And how did The Crimes of Grindelwald set it up? For a while, it seemed like Fantastic Beasts 3 would follow the two-year release pattern and arrive in cinemas on November 20, This date was never set in stone though and when production was pushed back by Warner Bros , we knew that wasn't going to happen for the threequel.
