Next 'Fantastic Beasts' movie thrills fans with return to Hogwarts

The trailer hits nearly every beat that returning Harry Potter fans would want to see: there's familiarity, nostalgia and the return of beloved characters and ideas from the main-line series as well as the continuation of the Fantastic Beasts story, which was charming enough to bring in more than $800m. The trailer for the sequel has arrived and it will excite all Harry Potter fans because it shows off Hogwarts. Here, you'll find out when the Fantastic Beasts 2 is coming out, who's in it and what we know about the plot so far.

Now for the sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Scamander and his friends return to Europe and they will be joined by a very friendly face. We see characters from the first film return - Katherine Waterston returns as Tina, Dan Fogler as Jacob, Ezra Miller as Credence and Alison Sudol as Queenie. Unlike the Harry Potter series which was based in England, the spinoff was set in New York, USA and was about how Scamander lands in trouble with Muggles and wizards thanks to his animals and his dark encounter with the bad wizard, Gellert Grindelwald. Dumbledore was the administrator of the court, with the title of Chief Warlock, as well as the British Youth Representative to the court when he was younger.

The trailer opens with familiar shot of Hogwarts Castle.

In an attempt to stop him, Dumbledore (then a Transfiguration professor) enlists the help of Newt.

Needless to say, the trailer has magical glimpses of some of Newt Scamander's fantastic beasts and many of his adventures.

In regards to the synopsys, it comes as no surprise that Gellert Grindelwald managed to escape after being taken into custody at the end of the first movie.

It's hard to tell whether the problem exists within this trailer, or whether the controversy surrounding Johnny Depp's inclusion in the film, and the straightwashing of his and Jude Laws' characters, make it genuinely hard to love the entire franchise at this point.

Basically, there's still a LOT more we need to know about our beloved Hogwarts.
