Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

We knew it was coming, but we held out hope. However, the first trailer for The Crimes of Grindelwald , the second film in the five-part Fantastic Beasts series, confirms that Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) does not fuck in this movie. There’s plenty of other eye candy for Potterheads, though: We catch glimpses of Hogwarts in the ‘20s, the Deluminator, a thestral-drawn carriage, and Dumbledore in his study, presumably fresh off teaching a Transfiguration lesson.

The film will continue where the first Fantastic Beasts left off, charting Gellert Grindelwald’s (Johnny Depp) rise to power and the Wizarding World’s attempt to stop him. Most of the cast from the first film returns, including Eddie Redmayne, Dan Fogler, and Katherine Waterston.


The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released on November 16, 2018.
