New ‘Fantastic Beasts 2’ Video Explains the Major ‘Harry Potter’ Connections

So grab your wand, your trusty case and a Niffler (if you've got one handy), because it's time to get ready for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald.

Warner Bros. invites you to explore the connections between the worlds of Harry Potter and Newt Scamander are explored in The Magic Continues: From Harry Potter to Fantastic Beasts.

Jude Law plays a young Dumbledore in the new film.

The cast list for the second film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, has been released, and includes our favourite bespectacled Hogwarts transfiguration teacher.


Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is being directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling, and produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.

However, Potter-mad fans have pointed out that the new movie is set in 1927 and the fictional head of Gryffindor House wasn't even born then. The film stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamandar alongside returning stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, and Ezra Miller. Michael Gambon and Richard Harris, who both played the wise Hogwarts headmaster, narrate the video, which shows us flashes of the Mirror of Erised, the Deathly Hallows, and Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) as they appear in both series.

The Crimes of Grindelwald, ' our crew of beast-loving wizards and loveable muggles have a lot to fear in the form of the white-haired title character.

The sequel starts from escape attempt by Grindelwald who now wants to gather new followers for his true agenda: to destroy the peace that exists between beings of Wizard World and non-magical beings.
