A New Fantastic Beasts Featurette is one for the Fans

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has not even been released yet, and already it is one for the fans. An early trailer revealed the famed Nicolas Flamel that Harry Potter fans have been waiting to meet. Jude Law turned back the clock on a character he’s always loved himself. Most surprising was the reveal that a seemingly new player was actually a familiar face. Claudia Kim will play the shapeshifting snake Nagini. We are now just a month away from the film’s release date and a featurette is here to signal the time to purchase tickets has come.

The video takes us back to all of the moments we’ve celebrated together as fans while waiting for the next film. Since the beginning, Wizarding Wednesdays have brought us the latest updates from the set. Lucky London fans got an even bigger treat on September 1 for ‘Back to Hogwarts’ day. Kings Cross Station turned the unofficial celebration of the day wizarding students pass through Platform 9 ¾ into a fan bonanza. Fantastic Beasts stars Jude Law and Eddie Redmayne hailed the 11:00 train to Hogwarts as glowing wands lit up the terminal.

The featurette has some other fun snippets including fan reactions to the trailers, wands waving to welcome the new film, and even a meet and greet with JK Rowling. Even if you missed out on those magical events, the best way to celebrate is to see The Crimes of Grindelwald. The spell for this one is easy. Merely wave your wands and say, “Accio tickets!” Or, just go online to purchase. They’re available now.

See? Wasn’t that easy? Seriously, if I could have one spell from the wizarding world, it would undoubtedly be ‘accio.’ I lose way too much stuff.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald apparates into theaters November 16.
