The trailer for Warner Bros'"Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald", to be released in November, also gave fans a first glimpse of actor Jude Law as a dapper, bearded, young version of Hogwarts' venerable headmaster Albus Dumbledore, and featured parts of the famous "Harry Potter" music score.

Grindelwald is seen being held at wand-point in the new trailer.

As attractive as this looks, The Crimes of Grindelwald is also by far the most controversial in the Harry Potter universe so far.

In the trailer, Dumbledore is shown in a Hogwarts classroom, and later telling actor Eddie Redmayne's Scamander:"I can't move against Grindelwald".

Despite appearing to lose his memories in the first film, Jacob is back in the thick of the wizarding world, and appears to join Newt on his adventure.

In addition, we see Eddie Redmayne's magic zoologist Newt Scamander traveling around Paris (and underwater, aboard a magical sea creature) in a quest to stop the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). However, most don't know what he's really up to: he wants to raise pure-blood wizards to rule over all the non-magical beings on the planet.

His appearance in the film was marred by controversy previous year when a number of fans of the wizarding franchise expressed their disappointment in his return after he was accused of domestic violence by ex-wife Amber Heard in 2016.

"Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. There are also hints of his relationship with Grindewald, as he tells Newt that he can not be the one to face the dark wizard - something he will do eventually, but presumably not until the last of the series, which will have a further three instalments to go after this one.
