New Scenes from “Crimes of Grindelwald” International Trailers
If you were slightly concerned that Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald would be more about Grindelwald and less about the beasts that made the first film so magical, don’t worry. We just received a new featurette about the creatures, and now a new international trailer for the latest installment of Fantastic Beasts not only reveals new magical creatures but also includes never-before-seen shots of our heroes.
As we saw before, Bowtruckles and Nifflers are back. The new trailer reveals how incredibly adorable baby Nifflers are going to be. Those little mischief-makers are lucky they’re cute. As for the Bowtruckles, Jacob in particular seems delighted by what is most likely Pickett picking a lock.
The trailer also includes new scenes of our characters, like what looks to be a reunion between Jacob, Queenie, and Newt. Queenie finally looks happy! This scene is much needed since we’ve been worried about Queenie’s loyalties for a while now.
Of course, we still have shots of many of our main characters looking distraught, with what seems to be a new shot of Jacob looking very upset. We’re getting pretty worried about the happiness of our main characters!
Perhaps most exciting are the extended scenes in the graveyard, which we now believe is the Père Lachaise Cemetery. It looks like Newt, Theseus, Tina, and Jacob might all be in the graveyard. We’ve seen the blue flames being cast by Grindelwald in the auditorium-like room, but now it looks like they are also in the cemetery in the form of a large dragon. Maybe the magic Theseus, Newt, and Tina (who is revealed in this trailer to also be performing the spell) are casting in the graveyard is meant to stop the blue flames from creating destruction. This trailer reveals that Newt and Theseus are yelling “Finite” as they perform this spell, so it’s a safe bet that they are trying to stop a spell.
Near the end of the trailer, we see a shot of Newt walking across the Hogwarts bridge alone as his voice-over says, “Trust me.” He looks like he is facing something very grim.
The trailer ends with an adorable scene of the baby Nifflers getting into trouble. At least we know the movie won’t be entirely dark!
What do you think about this new footage? Any theories about the graveyard scene now that we have this new information? Let us know!
