Since Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald's initial teaser trailer was released earlier this year, we have been clamoring for more details behind Newt's next big-screen adventure. To paraphrase an old friend of Dumbledore's, Warner Bros's got style as magic bewitched San Diego Comic Con.

As one of the biggest conventions in the world of movies, comics, tvs, and anime, San Diego Comic Con is the place to get all of the latest news behind our favorite franchises. Its legendary Hall H is where all the action happens: new trailers are released, actors unite to answer fan questions, and of course, all the must-know announcements are revealed for some of the most anticipated movies around. This year's event wouldn't be complete without Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and boy were we in for a special treat!

To kick off the new trailer's release, actress and host Aisha Tyler welcomed the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald castmates - Eddie Redmayne, Katharine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Folger, Zoe Kravitz, Claudia Kim, Jude Law, and Ezra Miller - for a Q&A panel to answer fans' biggest questions. While talking about this next step into J.K. Rowling's wizarding world, the cast promised that Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald gets darker and more thrilling as Newt and his friends are forced to pick a side while Dumbledore's battle against Gellert Grindelwald's deepens. The spectacle would not be complete without Johnny Depp making a special appearance as Gellert Grindelwald and giving a stirring, grim speech to the witches and wizards in attendance.

Is Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald bigger, bolder, and more thrilling? I definitely think so. Check out the latest trailer as we catch up with familiar faces and get our #WandsReady against dangerous foes. ALSO, NIFFLERS. 

From the Official Press Release:
Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™. 

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne).  But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set 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. 

The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, ZoĆ« Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, Poppy Corby-Tuech, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp. 

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling.  The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.  Tim Lewis, Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen serve as executive producers.

The film reunites the behind-the-scenes creative team from the first “Fantastic Beasts” film, including Oscar-winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot (“A River Runs Through It”), three-time Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig (“The English Patient,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “Gandhi,” the “Harry Potter” films), four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (“Chicago,” “Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), and Yates’ longtime editor Mark Day (the last four “Harry Potter” films).  The music is by eight-time Oscar nominee James Newton Howard (“Defiance,” “Michael Clayton,” “The Hunger Games” films).
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is slated for release on November 16, 2018! What was your favorite part of the trailer? What are you most excited to see?
