Post 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' final trailer scene-by-scene breakdown

Hopefully Wizarding world fans from around the globe have had the chance to see the jaw-dropping final trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. If not, it's right here to be seen repeatedly forevermore.

Now, we come to the trailer breakdown. Not just the HUGE surprise, but every little thing fans may not have noticed, or want to discuss about the sequel before it opens in November. Without further ado...

We start off with Dumbledore having a bit of a chat with Newt Scamander in an empty double-decker bus, where he suggests he heads to a safe house Paris to have a spot of tea with... someone... (that will come up later).

The trailer basically breaks down the opening scene of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - Grindelwald's escape from MACUSA. It seems easy to tell that Grindelwald was originally set to be taken from New York to Europe for trial (looks like a tiny glimpse of President Picquery in that second shot there by the thestral-drawn carriage), but things go awry midway through flight.

Grindelwald gets a hold of his Elder Wand, conjures up some snakes, attacks the carriage driver, and gains control of it to set off to his own destination... Paris.

The segment here looms with Grindelwald's voiceover: join me... or die.

In the midst of the Grindelwald sequence was the major reveal... that Maledictus is not her name, but what she is (more on that from J.K. Rowling here).

As Credence hisses (or can he speak parseltongue now???) she is in fact... Nagini. Yes, the same Nagini in the Harry Potter books. Voldemort's Horcrux that eventually gets decapitated by Neville Longbottom at the climax of Deathly Hallows. How she got from her spot at the Circus Arcanus to becoming an intricate part of Voldemort's soul... well, we'll find out.

Here we got the first look at Hogwarts' beloved Great Hall once again, this time with what looks like Leta Lestrange looking in.

A couple more shots of Grindelwald preparing for battle at the French amphitheater against Newt, Theseus, Tina, Leta, and their gang.

A bit of a mountain (maybe the Alps?) destroyed... more of Grindelwald's work, perhaps?

Tina looking on as the Zouwu makes its escape through the colorful streets of Paris...

You may think this is a mass of lethifolds, but we don't believe so. During last year's set visit of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, were were made aware of large black tapestries covering the buildings of Paris... but curtains only the Wizarding world could see. Those were Grindelwald's curtains, with his double-G and Elder Wand emblem on them.

It could be one, but it can easily be the other (or hell, it could even be both and Grindelwald is using the dark forces as his malicious curtains?).

Can't say what this is referring to, with Queenie touching an animated bird, but undoubtedly it has a deeper meaning than just this quick shot.

Nicolas Flamel looks worried into the distance (maybe near the graveyard or amphitheater where the action is happening?).

Ah, the return of love's past. Also the return of actors Jamie Campbell Bower and Toby Regbo, who played teen Grindelwald and Dumbledore, respectively and briefly, in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which is a pleasant surprise.

Quick shot of Newt, Tina, and eventually Leta running through the French Ministry floors (part of a larger action sequence in the French Ministry that takes place in the sequel).

Newt takes Jacob along on... didn't know side-along Portkey existed with a wizard and muggle/No-maj? Guess it does now.

A male figure walks through a wall - hard to tell who from here - and we're wondering if its their hand who grabs Maledictus/Nagini in the second shot?

Newt in his infinite Newt-ness trying to lure the Zouwu back into his magical suitcase...

Ah, good, we're back to the French safe house, as Dumbledore mentioned in the start of the trailer. And sharing a spot of tea with a familiar face...

This shot is particularly surprising because those clearly look like military fighter planes and... well, why are they flying over the Parisian skies as Newt looks on? Has the Muggle French government intervened with the magical messes in Paris?

Newt and big brother Theseus have a chat in the British Ministry of Magic (those green-tiled walls look familiar, after all) as Newt proclaims in voiceover that he refuses to take sides.

More shots of our heroes in the amphitheater and/or graveyard battle in Paris.

Grindelwald getting ready for battle at the amphitheater again.

Quick shots of the heroes... is Maledictus/Nagini good as well - outside Hogwarts.

Guessing the Scamander brothers getting ready to battle.

And finally we get to the end, which looks to be in the French Ministry and not British, where Tina ties up Theseus for whatever reason. Much to the utter delight of embittered little brother Newt.

Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, ZoŽ Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, Poppy Corby-Tuech, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp.

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. Tim Lewis, Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen serve as executive producers.

The film reunites the behind-the-scenes creative team from the first “Fantastic Beasts” film, including Oscar-winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot (“A River Runs Through It”), three-time Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig (“The English Patient,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “Gandhi,” the “Harry Potter” films), four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (“Chicago,” “Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), and Yates’ longtime editor Mark Day (the last four “Harry Potter” films). The music is by eight-time Oscar nominee James Newton Howard (“Defiance,” “Michael Clayton,” “The Hunger Games” films).

Slated for release on November 16, 2018, the film will be distributed worldwide in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures.

This film is rated PG-13 for some sequences of fantasy action.
