The cast and crew of Warner Bros. Pictures Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald presented a new trailer for the film, which continues Newt Scamander’s (Eddie Remayne) adventures in the Wizarding World. This time, he’s off to Paris to help Dumbledore (Jude Law) with a secret mission concerning Dark Lord Grindlewald (Johnny Depp).
To open the session, Redmayne used his wand to illuminate wristbands given to everyone in Hall H. He also announced he would have liked to have played Hagrid in the earlier Harry Potter series. But soon after, the trailer debuted:
After the trailer, Law referred to the film as “very much a ‘whose side are you on’ story.”
But the frivolity came to a chilling end when Depp appeared on stage as Grindelwald to deliver a speech about pure wizards. “I say the muggles are not lesser, not worthless,” he said. “But have other value.” And then, just like that, the evil wizard was gone. Thankfully.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens on November 16th.
