The trailer hits nearly every beat that returning Harry Potter fans would want to see: there's familiarity, nostalgia and the return of beloved characters and ideas from the main-line series as well as the continuation of the Fantastic Beasts story, which was charming enough to bring in more than $800m.
While actor Jude Law fills the shoes of the character of the Hogwarts school headmaster Albus Dumbledore, Eddie Redmayne returns as the charmingly clumsy Newt Scamander.
The end of the trailer also has a moment of pure fan service, but this needs to be watched, not read.
More drama, more fantastic beasts, more wizards and witches, and more magic! You can check out fans reactions to the film's trailer below. The film is scheduled for release on 16 November.

As she sees it, Iris' true heroism is what she can accomplish without superpowers. There's no school for acting in front of a green screen...
Now the first trailer for the upcoming film has been released and fans finally get to see Jude Law portraying Hogwarts headteacher Albus Dumbledore in action.
If you can remember, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America) at the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We are then given peeks into both new and returning characters including Scamander's love interest Porpetina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston), his "no-maj" friend Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), Queenie (Alison Sudol), Leta Lestrange (Zoë Kravitz) and Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller) who seems to have survived his death from the last film.
The trailer shows Dumbledore talking to wizarding authorities about Newt and his mission, telling the group in a bid to keep his plan in motion: "If you ever had the pleasure of teaching Newt, you would know that he is not a great follower of orders".
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald began principal photography a year ago and will open in theaters on November 16, 2018.
