The first movie,"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them", which was written by Rowling, made $814 million at the global box offices after it was released in November 2016.

At the end of the first movie (one of a planned five in the Harry Potter prequel series), the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by the Magical Congress of the United States of America thanks to help from magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his friends.

Having escaped MACUSA's custody, Grindelwald is now gathering followers across Europe, "most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings".

The film will be directed by David Yates from a script by JK Rowling, who also produces with David Heyman, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. Now, we list all the connections between The Crimes of Grindelwald and Harry Potter - in case you missed any. The school didn't appear in Fantastic Beasts, so it's a major return for the franchise to head into Hogwarts.

It looks like this film franchise is only going to get better, and I can not wait to finally see the first trailer. Though Redmayne's character is still front and centre, it's telling that Law's wizard is close behind him.

Further, we also see a brief shot of some Thestrals, which are the creatures that pull the carriages bringing students from the train to Hogwarts at the start of term.

"I can't move against Grindelwald", Dumbledore tells Newt.

The "Crimes of Grindelwald" trailer was the first to show Hogwarts as part of the "Fantastic Beasts" story, which centres around Newt Scamander, a "magizoologist" with a suitcase full of odd creatures.
