With the sequel of Fantastic Beasts, The Crimes of Grindelwald, slowly approaching, more and more tastes of what's to come is being released. This time, you had to be an attendee at CinemaCon in Las Vegas to see for yourself, but we'll tell you all about it.
New Fantastic Beasts footage sees Dumbledore at Hogwarts and Nicolas Flamel https://t.co/mXWL8nIDcG— Entertainment Weekly (@EW) April 25, 2018
Reportedly, new footage shown at the convention sees Dumbledore teaching a Defense Against the Dark Arts class, with Newt Scamander in attendance as a student.
“As someone who has grown up watching all of J.K. Rowling’s films, I had always dreamt of going to Hogwarts and I felt a little short-changed that I didn’t get to go to Hogwarts [in the first Fantastic Beasts film], so in this film I get to go to Hogwarts,” Eddie Redmayne, who plays the Newt, told the audience. “We all get to meet Dumbledore, who Jude Law plays, and he has this amazing, quixotic, eccentric joy to him."
The footage shows Dumbledore telling Newt, “Everyone is scared of something,” as he forces his student to face a boggart transformed into a desk- showing Newt's biggest fear of working in an office.
CinemaCon audiences were then able to see Jacob Kowalski meeting a familiar Harry Potter face, as Jacob asks the figure, "Are you a ghost?"
“No, I’m alive, but I’m an alchemist, and therefore immortal,” the man replies, then introduces himself as Nicolas Flamel. The hype is real!
It's expected this exclusive footage will be at least a part of the forthcoming full-length trailer for the film, as the teaser trailer was released in March.
