The Final Fantastic Beasts Sequel Trailer Teases A Surprising Character Reveal

The Final Fantastic Beasts Sequel Trailer Teases A Surprising Character Reveal

Up until the final trailer's release, the actress who plays Nagini, Claudia Kim, was known only as a Maledictus - a witch (or wizard) who carries a "blood curse" that "destines her ultimately to transform into a beast", according to Pottermore.

"Representation as an afterthought for more woke points is not good representation", the user shares. The monstrous snake is essentially Voldemort's best friend, and it looks like we are getting some back history on her. Claudia Kim plays Maledictus, which is more of a title than a name.

The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second movie in Warner Brothers' planned five-part Fantastic Beasts series, and will also be the tenth among the whole Wizarding World franchise.

Many find it problematic that a woman of color is playing a cursed woman who eventually becomes a snake and slave to "Harry Potter" villain Voldemort.

Author J.K. Rowling revealed that she's been holding on to this secret for "around 20 years". "She does feel sometimes it's not controllable", Kim says.

The screenplay of Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald was written by Rowling, who is also a producer on the film.

For those who are wondering what Maledictus and Animagus are, here are details about it.




But Rowling has since defended her decision, calmly tweeting that the character is inspired by the Naga, of Indonesian mythology.

The "Fantastic Beasts" films are all set long before the timeline of Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter, but maybe Culkin could play Grandpa Malfoy.

Questions then went into the curiosity of Dumbledore and Grindelwald, and why a powerful wizard like Dumbledore would not be able to take him down.

Just earlier, Warner Bros. released some hi-res images featuring Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), Dumbledore (Jude Law), Nagini, Credence (Ezra Miller) & others.

The nearly two and a half minute trailer promises action, surprises, wondrous visual effects, a strong Dumbledore/Newt bond, and a terrifyingly motivated villain in Johnny Depp's Grindelwald.

As the trailer of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald dropped, some of the Potterheads had to deal with a shocking revelation.
