We’ve got a brand new trailer from San Diego Comic Con for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and it looks like those crimes are really stacking up.
Prepare yourselves for a hard pitch on behalf of wizarding fascism:
There’s a lot going on here, including a pretty clear idea of how events with Grindelwald will unfold going forward. We also get to meet Nicholas Flamel by the end (pronouncing his own name like a true and proper Frenchman, unlike everyone else in the Potter films), which indicates that we might have to worry about him and the Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone. Newt is being put on a very dangerous path by Dumbledore, but we still don’t know how all the pieces or characters fit together.
And then there’s who Dumbedore sees in the Mirror of Erised. Which he once told Harry was himself holding a pair of woolen socks. And is most certainly Gellert Grindelwald. Of course, this could be written off as Albus wanting to catch and/or stop Grindelwald, but we do know he was in love with the man, so… that’s something for fandom to implode over.
