This Fantastic Beasts 2 sneak peek takes us back to Hogwarts


Warner Bros. released a new featurette taking us behind the scenes of the upcoming movie with another look at our favorite school for witches and wizards.

Since the release of the last Harry Potter movie seven years ago (yes, you read that correctly) loyal fans of the Wizarding World have yet to see much more in the way of Hogwarts. With the release of the first Fantastic Beasts movie, we were given a small taste of the world of magic once again, but with no Hogwarts in sight.  Luckily, there is more to come and Warner Brothers just made us feel like we never left.

A new Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald featurette was released in celebration of September 1st (the first day of school for Hogwarts students) and it takes fans back to the familiar school for witchcraft and wizardry. We get to see our old stomping grounds (as it were), and the familiar Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom while paying homage to the Boggart-Banishing spell previously seen in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

The new video includes brief interviews with some of the cast and J.K. Rowling herself, who mentions that the Hogwarts in this movie “looks very familiar to anyone who saw the Potter movies, but obviously the teaching staff are different.”

Watch the video below:

Twitter users and fans of the Potter-verse expressed plenty of excitement over the release of this new video:

So, while we continue to look to the skies for owls carrying our Hogwarts letters, we can take solace in the fact that there are only mere months between us and this (hopefully) amazing movie.
