And we can’t control our excitement…
When the final instalment of the Harry Potter series left our screens, we felt our childhood coming to an end. Every millennial can testify, it was gutting.
Luckily for well, everyone, a new spin off series came about - with Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them filling that HP-shaped hole in our hearts.
Following the huge success of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, grossing over £648 million in the box office, it was hardly surprising when they announced that it was being developed into a five-part series, with the sequel expected to hit cinemas in November 2018.
Its name? Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
The film will see its old cast reunite with JK Rowling writing the script, David Yates returning to direct and of course Eddie Redmayne reprising his role as Newt Scamander. But from Johnny Depp to Zoë Kravitz, there will be plenty of new faces, with the casting of Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore gaining the most publicity.
How will he fare? We can see for ourselves, with the first ever teaser trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald landing today.
Yes, Albus Dumbledore and Newt Scamander are teaming up to take on Grindelwald - and it doesn’t get much better than that.
‘All good jobs have an element of fear in them because you want to do well,’ Jude Law explained to the BBC about stepping into Dumbledore’s iconic cloak. ‘You want to please people and you want to please yourself.’
November can’t come soon enough.
