The Crimes Of Grindelwald (screendaily)
Warner Bros. released new footage with a teenage Newt Scamander
(Eddie Redmayne) receiving Defense Against the Dark Arts instruction
at Hogwarts. The footage generated a big laugh among attendees at the
CinemaCon convention of theater owners in Las Vegas, with Jude Law
portraying a young Albus Dumbledore as the bumbling Scamander faces a
Boggart (a malevolent, shapeshifting spirit) and a desk appears. Dumbledore
explains that it’s manifested as Scamander’s fear: having to work an
office job. “This film, I get to go to Hogwarts, which is the best thing!”

Dumbledore has the following conversation with Newt:
Dumbledore: You’ve heard rumors Grindelwald will
rise to dominate the wizarding world.
Newt: You’re asking me to help?
Dumbledore: And to learn. I can’t move against
Grindelwald. It has to be you.
After this follow some shots of the growing darkness – and maybe
even a glimpse of Dumbledore looking into the Mirror of Erised!
According to reports, the trailer ends with a moment of humor from
our beloved Jacob Kowalski and a familiar name that we will finally
get to meet face to face: Nicolas Flamel! ‘Are you a ghost?’
Jacob asks a very old, pale man standing behind him.
‘No, I’m alive, but I’m an alchemist, and therefore immortal,’ says
the man before introducing himself as Nicolas Flamel. Later in the
clip, Jacob tells Flamel, “You don’t look a day over 375.”
Other reports include details such as Grindelwald riding away on a sleigh,
dark cats accompanying villains, and more scenes of London chaos.
Eddie hugs Gemma Chan who played Madam Ya Zhou in 'Fantastic Beasts and
Where to Find Them'. She attended the event with the cast of 'Crazy Rich Asians'
