One of my top movies of 2016 was definitely “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” Getting the chance to go back to the Wizarding World was absolutely amazing. I loved the characters, the story, and of course the beasts!
So like most Potterheads, I’ve been anxiously awaiting the trailer for the second installment of the series! I’m hoping for a lot of things in this film, so fingers crossed it meets my expectations!
If you haven’t seen the teaser yet, you can watch it below!
Getting to see Hogwarts at the beginning was just wonderful! So much nostalgia with that! And then you see some people apparating onto Hogwarts’ grounds, so I’m interested in seeing how that happened! Maybe the rule that you couldn’t do that came after this story?
Then we see a confrontation with Dumbledore played by Jude Law. I really am loving this portrayal of him, even though I sort of thought Dumbledore would be a little more eccentric! Especially since he is in Harry Potter, but I guess we don’t see too much of him in this teaser. He still might be! Or maybe he just gets more like that as he gets older!
We then see Newt and the gang in Paris! I’m really excited to be able to see the wizarding world portrayed in all of these different countries. The various cultures intertwining with the magical communities will be so fun to watch!
We get to see a little of Grindelwald, the magical circus, and Pickett (my favorite fantastic beast!)! The trailer takes a dark turn, showing what looks like a magical stand-off/duel/battle at the end!
I was a little sad we didn’t get to see Ilvermorny (I was really hoping we’d get a glimpse of America’s wizarding school!), but we still might! I was also hoping for a little more of Grindelwald in the trailer, but I definitely don’t mind waiting for the movie to see more of him.
All in all I was very impressed with the trailer, and I’m really looking forward to November to see the movie! I’d love to hear your thoughts on it in the comments!
