So a quick rundown of what's happening in this movie.

Following the the events of the first movie, the powerful dark wizard Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) has managed to escape from his capture by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), and has set about recruiting more wizards to join him in preparation for a fight against the muggles (non-magic folk).

Albus Dumbledore then convinces Newt Scamander to help catch the dangerous dark wizard.

Up to speed?

But the trailer for the movie also revealed the origins of a character which will be very familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the movies.

In 2017, the first cast photo for the movie identified Claudia Kim as a Maledictus, which is described on Pottermore as: "A carrier of a blood curse which will ultimately destine them to transform permanently into a beast."

The trailer has confirmed the suspicions of Nagini's original story - at one point showing Kim transforming into the snake.

Fans were quick to call upon the series' author, JK Rowling herself, to find out what the story is.

Roll on 16 November.
