It is finally here: Warner Bros. dropped the last trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. 

The clip gives a glimpse at a new character: You see Ezra Miller’s Credence Barebone hissing the name “Nagini” as new cast member Claudia Kim bends backwards and transforms into a snake. Potterheads think this is a reference to Lord Voldemort’s snake. Watch the trailer below.

The studio teamed up with Twitter to launch the spot on the social media platform before it went anywhere else. After its release, billboards in New York City, Toronto and Tokyo flooded with real-time Twitter reactions from fans using the hashtag #WandsReady.

Eddie Redmayne returns in the sequel as the wizard Newt Scamander. In the trailer, Professor Dumbledore (Jude Law) calls on Scamander to track down the evil wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).

“You want me to hunt him down? To kill him?” Scamander asks, according to Variety. Dumbledore tells Scamander, “I cannot move against Grindelwald. It has to be you.”
