Hogwarts, The amazing fictional school of witchcraft and wizardry that we all wanted to be a part of while growing up as kids, has been quite in the news these days.

Yes! Firstly, because the Harry Potter franchise is returning back to the screens with the ‘Return To Hogwarts’ reunion special, 10 years after the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 film back in 2011.

It was obviously an incredible feeling to see the star trio of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson return together for the reunion in the photo released by HBO Max.

However, that’s not it!

Warner Bros just released the trailer of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, and it looks promising.

The trailer sees Newt Scamander, the soft-hearted, magical beast-lover, Hufflepuff-housed wizard, who returns in the third film, with a newly assembled to take on a new challenge…


Now, while we saw a lot of Grindelwald in the second film, the fact is that a lot of dynamics have changed since then.

Not only has Johnny Depp been relieved of his acting duties by Warner Bros, but we have also got an impeccable replacement in Mads Mikkelson, the Danish actor who looks like he’s got all it takes to play the dark wizard.

Oh yeah! Mads looks amazing as Grindelwald and seeing by the trailer, the on-screen chemistry as well as the rivalry between him and Jude Law’s Dumbledore could be something to look out for.

In the trailer, Newt returns to Hogwarts in search of Albus Dumbledore, and he is greeted by none other than his brother Aberforth, who let’s be honest, doesn’t have any love lost for Albus.

Also, Newt’s muggle friend Jacob is also been given a new wizarding gift of a wand, something that we had no idea about could be done.

I mean, isn’t that like, breaking the rules? If you’re passing it on to him, what about us Muggles?

Anyway, the trailer goes on and ends where Dumbledore leads Newt’s team to a section of Hogwarts that we Potterheads are very well familiar with. The Room of Requirement!

It is there, Dumbledore does best.

And it’s not magic. It’s awarding points. But not to Gryffindor, but to Hufflepuff!

All in all, the trailer for the latest film leaves easter eggs of the Potter movies as well as what might lie ahead for our fans, and it looks like there might be more exciting things for us when we see the actual movie.
