AceShowbiz - Warner Bros. Pictures has released a final trailer for "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" ahead of the movie release this coming November. Loaded with tons of new footage, the video has a surprising name-drop that shows the movie's tie to the "Harry Potter" film series.
Claudia Kim is revealed to be playing a character named Nagini, whom fans have known as Lord Voldemort's trusty snake. In this movie, Nagini is a member of the traveling Circus Arcanus. As the victim of a blood curse, it allows her to transform from human to snake at will, but she is trying to avoid her fate of becoming a full-time snake.
Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller), now a fugitive, also works at the traveling circus under a tyrannical master. At one point, he seems to be forced to choose between joining Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) or fighting with the good guys. Nagini herself is seen on team Newt (Eddie Redmayne).
Speaking of which side each character is on, Newt's brother Theseus (Callum Turner) is seen attempting to thwart Newt and Tina's (Katherine Waterston) plans, but later he is seen fighting alongside his magizoologist brother.
The video additionally hints at Queenie's (Alison Sudol) dark path as she's looking distressed on the street. There's also a flashback to the time when Dumbledore and Grindelwald were students. They are seen touching the Mirror of Erised. Toby Regbo and Jamie Campbell, who played the characters in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1", reprise the roles in the "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" sequel.
In "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald", Grindelwald has escaped custody and sets about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
Also starring Dan Fogler, Zoe Kravitz, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo and Poppy Corby-Tuech, the upcoming fantasy movie is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. It is slated for release on November 16 in the United States.
