Post 'Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore' first official trailer out now

As promised, Warner Bros. released the first, nearly three-minute full trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which can be watched below, as well as highlights and an updated summary of the movie out this coming April 2022 in theaters worldwide.

Screenshots breakdown to follow later today. Of particular note on watching this was the first look at a young Aberforth Dumbledore (Richard Coyle), and a complete lack of Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston), which was suspicious and surprising given she doesn't seem to be part of the main team fighting Grindelwald (led by Albus Dumbledore and Newt Scamander with Bunty, Yusuf Kama, Professor Lally Hicks, Thesesus Scamander and Jacob Kowalski).

SPOILER!!: A breakdown of the trailer scene by scene.

- starts off with a wide shot of Hogwarts with the Golden Snitch flying over, then a shot to older Dumbledore (Michael Gambon), and back to younger Dumbledore (Jude Law), with someone saying "the past whispers to you"
- next scene is Newt and Theseus Scamander (Eddie Redmayne and Callum Turner) in the Hog's Head, looking for Dumbledore, and there they meet his brother Aberforth (Richard Coyle)
- then a pan of Dumbledore walking through a snowy street, with Theseus in a voiceover saying "the world as we know it is coming under - Grindelwald's pulling it apart with hate"
- a wide shot of a mass gathering with red and yellow banners
- then the first closeup of Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) taking out a memory with the Elder Wand from what looks like Yusuf Kama (William Nadylam)
- a quick shot of Pickett the Bowtruckle on a wooden boat and Newt navigating it through water
- Dumbledore tells Theseus, "if we're to defeat him, you'll have to trust me" in the next scene
- a shot of Newt and Pickett going through a forest-type area with a creepy noise in background, stopping them dead in their tracks
- Newt and a group of people (including the first shot of Jacob Kowalski [Dan Fogler]) walking through a wall into another area (akin to Platform 9 3/4)
- Thesesus says, as they're introduced, "this is the team that's going to take down the most dangerous wizard in over a century: a Magizoologist (Newt walking on a street); his indispensable assistant (Bunty [Victoria Yeates] walking down a road); a wizard descended from a very old family (closeup of Kama); a schoolteacher (Professor Lally Hicks [first look at Jessica Williams, with her wand on a dark street); and a muggle (Jacob)." The group of them are standing around a train cabin while Theseus describes the group.
- in this same scene Newt pulls out a wand and tells Jacob, "Dumbledore says I should give you something..." to Jacob's surprise and Theseus's skepticism.
- then a quick shot of Gryffindor Quidditch player flying over Hogwarts, a shot of Jacob, Lally, Newt and Theseus walking through a Hogwarts corridor, and then of the four in the Great Hall with Dumbledore, who's pulled up some smoke around the head table
- another quick shot of Aberforth and Albus Dumbledore together in the Hog's Head, where the younger brother says, "off the save the world, are we?" as Albus heads off.
- an overhead shot of a dark phoenix flying overhead a ledge, on which a long-haired Credence Barebone (or Aurelius Dumbledore [Ezra Miller]) stands
- next shot of Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol) and Jacob in Jacob's bakery in New York City (maybe a flashback?)
- then of Dumbledore holding the blood locket binding him and Grindelwald
- Newt in a cave full of what look like fire crabs, and now imitating a crab walk to perhaps gauge their attention or trust (as Theseus mimics him skeptically), and as they have their backs to an entrance to the cave, a large creature's tentacles, maybe, make an attack at them
- next shot is of Lally and Theseus back-to-back on a street dueling dark wizards
- Jacob holding his wand as steadily as he can in a dining area as Queenie - now Grindelwald's companion dressed in black - looks back at him as wind/magic is blowing him away from her
- a person running up a long flight of stars as Grindelwald shouts "our war with the Muggles starts today!" and a bunch of quick shots here: a closeup of Dumbledore, Kama banging his wand on the ground, Grindelwald in a pool pushing out gusts of water to hit someone across him, Credence/Aurelius running and destroying everything around him on a street (wand in hand), Dumbledore trying to deflect building debris from hitting him, and then a shot of Credence and Dumbledore in that same street (maybe Berlin?) pushing at each other only to have Dumbledore apparate away?
- the next scene of Dumbledore, Newt, Theseus, Lally, and Jacob in the Room of Requirement at Hogwarts near a massive cylindrical portkey that takes them... somewhere
- a quick shot of Pickett running with a wand in his hand, followed by another wand battle between Dumbledore and Credence/Aurelius
- and a final fun scene of Jacob sitting with Hogwarts students in the Great Hall, where they ask how and where he got his wand from. He jokes it was a Christmas present.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS: ​​Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers. But with the stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?
Fans can expect:
  • A GRAND RETURN TO THE WIZARDING WORLD: In Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, audiences will be taken back into the familiar and immersive world of magic, fun and excitement, featuring even more compelling magical beasts in an all-new story that expands the iconic Wizarding World in surprising and unexpected ways.
  • DUMBLEDORE’S BACKSTORY: Dive into the complex, high-stakes relationationship between Grindelwald and Dumbledore to unlock the story of these two legendary wizards. For the first time, audiences will get an inside look at the complicated and enigmatic Dumbledore.
  • THE ULTIMATE WIZARD HEIST: The film is an action-packed cat-and-mouse game of secretive plans, mysteries and fun twists and turns. Our unlikely heroes - Newt, Jacob, Kama, Lally, Bunty and Theseus - are brought together by Dumbledore in an attempt to defeat Grindelwald.
  • MAGIC & WHIMSY ON THE BIG SCREEN: This is a richly realized expansion of the story fans have been craving, a transportive cinematic experience for all ages that features familiar connections to Harry Potter, the magic, the whimsy and humor as well as heart-stopping action.
