Jacob, Queenie, Newt, and Tina are back in the new teaser trailer for the J.K. Rowling–written Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the sequel to the 2016 prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Except this time, there will be at least one more important character for Harry Potter fans to welcome along for the ride—Albus Dumbledore.
The famed wizard was introduced in the Potter series as Hogwarts' headmaster. But now fans will get to see the character's younger days as he's played by Jude Law.
“I can’t tell you everything I would like to say because this is obviously a five-part story so there’s lots to unpack in that relationship,” said Rowling in a press conference two years ago. "You will see Dumbledore as a younger man and quite a troubled man—he wasn’t always the sage...We’ll see him at that formative period of his life. As far as his sexuality is concerned… watch this space."
More recently, director David Yates told EW the prequel-sequel will "not explicitly" get into Dumbledore's relationship with Grindelwald, played by Johnny Depp. “But I think all the fans are aware of that. He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were young men. They fell in love with each other’s ideas, and ideology, and each other.”
The Crimes of Grindelwald, which is the second film of a five-part series, also stars Zoe Kravitz, Ezra Miller, and more. It's slated to be released on Nov. 16.
