Grab your Time-Turners and enjoy this trip down memory lane as we go from the first page of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone through a poignant cascade of movie memories, fan moments and the dawn of the new chapters of the Wizarding World, from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to the Fantastic Beasts films.
And do stick around until the end for a huge treat. Your first (and rather extensive!) look at Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore awaits you!
In the video’s crescendo, we are greeted with an arresting shot of the esteemed Hogwarts castle before being swiftly taken down one of its corridors to meet Newt Scamander, Jacob Kowalski, Theseus Scamander and Professor Lally Hicks (whom you saw briefly in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald!) meeting with Albus Dumbledore.
You’ll also get your first look at Mads Mikkelsen as Gellert Grindelwald, glimmers of exciting and exotic new magical creatures, and an earth-shattering confrontation between Credence and Dumbledore. ‘The world as we know it is coming undone,’ Dumbledore says mournfully as the action unfolds. Have you formed any theories yet? Why does Dumbledore have a Golden Snitch? Could that mysterious cylindrical magical object be some sort of Portkey? And what is Dumbledore asking them to do, ‘even when every instinct tells you not to’?
Don’t blink or you might miss something important... of course, several re-watches ought to help...
