The trailer for the next Wizarding World franchise installment takes fans on a brief trip back to Hogwarts.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the sequel to 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Jude Law, makes a stunning debut in the trailer as a youthful Albus Dumbledore. The film did quite well at the box office earning a whopping $814M worldwide.

The first trailer introduces Jude Law as young Albus Dumbledore who with the help of his former student Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) trying to track down the most risky wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). Dumbledore enlists his help to thwart Grindelwald, who agrees unaware of what it'll bring. Toward the end of the video, Grindelwald looks different with his messy hair as he's being transported via coach and guarded by two aurors who keep their wands on him.

In addition, fans will find it comforting that the original author J.K. Rowling personally penned the script this time around.

One tweeted to the film's director: 'Honestly, David Yates, if you would only read Hogwarts: A History, you would know that you can't apparate onto school grounds'.

Senior Congress leader Shaktisinh Gohil told the media: "In the end, it is Satyameva Jayate (victory for truth)". The Shiv Sena has 63 members which means it has a surplus of 21 votes after it elects one of its candidates.

From what can be gleaned from repeated views, Dumbledore has sent Newt on a secret mission in Paris.

In the trailer, the makers have also made space for Dumbledore's Deluminator (which later goes to Ron in Harry Potter movies), Credence's Obscurus, Leta Lestrange (Newt's love interest), Queenie and Tina (witch sisters from the last film), Newt's constant companion Pickett, Newt's No-Maj friend Jacob Kowalski and a Thestral drawn carriage.

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

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald began principal photography a year ago and will open in theaters on November 16, 2018. Let us know in the comments!
