Grab your magic wand and your best scarf as everyone's favorite fancy lad—Eddie Redmayne's Newt Fancylad—is back in action in The Crimes of Grindelwald, the first of four sequels to 2016's Harry Potter spin-off Fancy Lads and Where to Find Them. You might notice that the title character is almost nowhere to be found in this first trailer, likely because he's being played by the personification of box office poison, Johnny Depp.
You've got to hand it to J.K. Rowling and Warner Brothers for squeezing every drop of blood they can out of this proverbial Sorcerer's Stone—or Philosopher's Stone if you live in the UK. Most of us thought that when the Harry Potter films came to a close in 2011, that would be the last time we'd venture to the wizarding world, but sure enough, they've got more stories to tell, more spells to cast, and even fancier lads for us to latch on to.
You can check out the new poster below as well, featuring Newt Fancylad and Jude Law's Dumbledore getting ready for war with Johnny Depp's evil Sebastian Scarvelous, the dark lord of accessorizing. Fancy Lads: The Scarves of Scarvelous opens on November 16.
Wait a second, that's not right...
