On Tuesday morning, the final trailer for “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” dropped a huge surprise on “Harry Potter” fans: Claudia Kim’s previously unrevealed character is a witch named Nagini, who has the ability to turn into a snake.

Soon after that, the movie faced accusations of racism as producers have chosen to cast an Asian actress in the role of a cursed woman whose future is to be Lord Voldemort’s slave.

JK Rowling clarified that Nagini is not an Animagus like Professor McGonagall, who can transform into animals at their own will, but a Maledictus.

When will Fantastic Beasts 2 be set?

There were rumors that the next film in the Fantastic Beasts series would take place almost immediately after the events of the first part. However, J.K. Rowling rejected the rumors herself stating that it wouldn’t “begin days after the first movie ended.”

With a timeline set between 1926 and 1945, there’s a 19 year gap for the second film to play around with, though we’d like to think that 1930 would probably be a logical capping off point for Fantastic Beasts 2.

What is the plot about?

There are no accurate details about what Fantastic Beasts 2 will have as its plot. However, some speculation can occur. In particular, we know that France and England both have prominent wizarding schools within their borders: Beauxbatons’ Academy of Magic in the former country, and Hogwarts’ School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

More than likely, the story for Fantastic Beasts 2 will see Newt continuing his career in magizoology, while somehow being roped into the continued search and fight against Gellert Grindelwald.

Seeing as Albus Dumbledore was extremely close to Grindelwald, his appearance is more than likely linked to this journey, as the two are on the path to conflict in the timeline set for the five film cycle.

Also, it’s to be assumed that Leta Lestrange, Newt’s ex-girlfriend, is more than likely in Grindelwald’s camp, seeing as her family eventually has deep roots in the darker side of the wizarding community.

Will we see Dumbledore-Grindelwald romance?

As you remember, Rowling confirmed that she always imagined Dumbledore as being gay, and that he cared deeply about Grindelwald. After fans heard that Dumbledore had been cast for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, they began to hope that this would actually be addressed in the film.

Unfortunately, director David Yates soon dispelled those hopes by suggesting the movie would “not explicitly” deal with this issue. But the trailer released at SDCC has suggested there may be some slightly more overt references.

The trailer includes one scene in which Dumbledore explains to Newt that he cannot move against Grindelwald. The dialogue was carefully placed over a scene in which Dumbledore stared into the Mirror of Erised, and saw Grindelwald’s reflection.

Of course, the biggest question we have is, will any other Harry Potter figures be crossing over into the Fantastic Beasts series, other than Albus Dumbledore. Already, Gellert Grindelwald is going to be present during the rest of the series, so that base is covered. But with Hogwarts being one of the possible settings for Fantastic Beasts 2, we might see younger versions of some professors, such as Minerva McGonagall, who is born during the time frame of this series of prequels.

Though, to be honest, we wouldn’t put too much faith in seeing a lot of old faces from the Harry Potter realm, as Fantastic Beasts is meant to be both a prequel to those adventures, while also being its own thing.
