Trailer Reaction: “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”

Published

Harry Potter fans rejoice! The Fantastic Beasts sequel is upon us! Titled, “The Crimes of Grindelwald”, the highly anticipated sequel welcomes back stars Eddie Redmayne, Dan Fogler, Katherine Waterston, Allison Sudol, Ezra Miller, and Johnny Depp as the titular villain. Joining the cast this time around is Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore, the future headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

For me, this trailer is probably the most magical of any I’ve seen yet this year. From the very first shot we are taken back to Hogwarts, which we haven’t seen since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released seven years ago, We see a young Dumbledore serving his role as Professor of Transfiguration (which is curious, as the scene takes place in the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom). He is asked by a group of men if Scamander (Redmayne) is working for him, to which Dumbledore replies that Mr. Scamander has a knack for “not following the rules.” What follows are some scattered shots depicting a few of our old favorite creatures from Scamander’s magic suitcase, including the lovable Bowtruckle from the first film.
The trailer culminates with Dumbledore telling Newt he must face Grindelwald himself, for he cannot interfere. This no doubt is a reference to the relationship between Dumbledore and Grindelwald, which has long been speculated as being romantic. Up until now this has only been hinted at, but one can hope this may be the first step in LGBT representation for a major film franchise.
Fantastic Beasts” opens in theaters everywhere this November.

The 8 Episode Series Tries To Encompass A Lot Leaving Fans In A Cliffhanger.

Published

The 2010 “Avatar: The Last Airbender” movie by M. Night Shyamalan faced criticism for its deviations from the beloved animated series. The film struggled with pacing, casting, and a lackluster script, disappointing fans who cherished the source material. In contrast, the 2024 Netflix series has generated positive buzz for its commitment to diverse casting, adherence to the original storyline, and improved character development. The series seems poised to capture the essence of the animated show, offering a fresh and faithful adaptation that resonates with both new and existing fans.

Even though the Netflix series comes closer to the core ideals of the animated series, I feel it lacks heart. Many scenes barely scratch the surface of the relationships between the characters and the push-and-pull relationship between Aang and Zuko. I will admit the CG versions of Momo and Appa are just so gosh darn cute.

The 8 episode series tries to encompass a lot leaving fans in a cliffhanger. It’s worth a watch and I am hanging on for the next season to be announced.
