The first trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was released today, and fans have been combing through the footage for any hints as to what we may learn in the sequel. One fan theory posits we’ll see the origins of Voldemort’s snake, Nagini, in the film, and certain clues found in the trailer may add fuel to that fire.
Actress Claudia Kim is one of the newest faces to the franchise, and her character thus far is only credited as “unidentified Maledictus,” or a wizard born cursed to become a beast. In the trailer, we’re given a good look at the Circus Arcanus, essentially a freak show for the magic realm, and a billing for a “Maledictus,” with a portrait of a snake above it, which could be Kim’s character.
Lending further credence to the theory is the cast photo that was recently released, which shows Kim wearing leggings. A closer look at the outfit reveals a snakeskin-like texture. Take all of this with a grain of salt for now, but we’ll know soon enough if the Fantastic Beasts sequel gives us the origin of Nagini or not.
Directed by David Yates, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Johnny Depp, Ezra Miller, Jude Law, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, David Sakurai, Claudia Kim, Brontis Jodorowsky, Wolf Roth, Victoria Yeates, Derek Riddell, Poppy Corby-Tuech, and Cornell S. John.
J.K. Rowling wrote the screenplay for the film, which opens in 1927, a few months after Newt helped to unveil and capture the infamous Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. However, as he promised he would, Grindelwald has made a dramatic escape and has been gathering more followers to his cause—elevating wizards above all non-magical beings. The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore. But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander. The adventure reunites Newt with Tina, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theaters on November 16, 2018.
