Yesterday, the final trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was released and it was awesome! It gave us a huge character reveal and had some of the best action in all of the trailers. We’re really hyped up about it. But it wasn’t only the trailer released yesterday. In addition, Entertainment Weekly debuted some new character posters, ones that give us a small insight into what our characters will be doing during the film and how the government thinks of them.
The posters are giant close-ups of the characters, showing most of their face. While that’s nothing too special, they each include a status at the bottom. And those statuses tell us what the government is looking at in regards to them. It’s unclear if this is the Ministry of Magic in London or MACUSA but we’re leaning towards the latter, given that Tina Goldstein’s (Katherine Waterston) poster says she’s “On Foreign Assignment”. But that’s not all! Each poster also includes a small design to go with them, such as Dumbledore (Jude Law) having a phoenix and Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) having a skull. Interestingly, Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol) has a ring in her poster. Does that mean wedding bells for her and her favorite No-Maj?
One of the biggest posters to note is that of Leta Lestrange (Zoë Kravitz). Her poster says she’s “Implicated by Prophecy” with a small raven in the corner. First thing we need to ask is – what prophecy?! The theories are endless in possibility. My gut feeling? She has something to do with the further rise of Grindelwald. His reign was said to have gone on for 45 years and he’s starting to gain momentum in this next film, so there’s plenty of time for his terror. Another poster to note is that of Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller). He’s listed as “Searching for Identity”, but did MACUSA not learn that he’s an obscurial? I have so many questions! All of which will have to wait for now.
Check out the posters below and let us know what you think of them! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more magical news. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald apparates into theaters November 16th, 2018.
