Fantastic Beasts European premiere in Paris

Redmayne teases 'jaw-dropping secrets' of Fantastic Beasts sequel

The prequel series has plenty of new plot for Potterheads to digest - without the added pressure that the Harry Potter films faced of translating already-beloved books to the screen.

The second new adventure in JK Rowling's Wizarding World, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, picks up where the first film left off, with young Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlisting his former student and magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to help thwart the plans of the evil and risky Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). The Crimes of Grindelwald picks up where Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them left off - with magical creature lover Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) returning to Europe, where we learn he's been banned from global travel after the havoc wreaked on New York City in the previous film. "There are so many connections between characters and storylines, past and present, and so many secrets yet to be revealed", Law teased at the beginning of the video.

Warner Bros confirmed actress Fiona Glascott will play Minerva McGonagall in the new film.

Another said: "How is McGonagall going to be in the next fantastic beasts?".

It is unclear when exactly Jimin wore the shirt in question, but pictures of him in it started circulating online in October. The garment also showed words like "Patriotism", "Our History", "Liberation" and "Korea".

But one eagle-eyed fan pointed out Minerva was named after her grandmother, so perhaps it's her grandmother appearing in the new film.

The Guardian called it watchable and wrote, "This Fantastic Beasts film is as watchable and entertaining as expected and it's an attractive Christmas event, but some of the wonder, novelty and sheer narrative rush of the first film has been mislaid in favour of a more diffuse plot focus, spread out among a bigger ensemble cast".

"Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald", is the second of five planned movies set some 70 years before Rowling's best-selling "Harry Potter" books and movies, which are set in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We'll have to wait and see.
