It’s official: the trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will drop tomorrow, March 13th, and we could not be more excited!

Warner Bros are encouraging fans everywhere to share photos with their #WandsReady on social media, or use the photo uploader on FantasticBeasts.com to make a personalized video to share. Here’s Leaky’s #WandsReady photo from on set of the Fantastic Beasts film (no sharing yet, sadly)!


Dan Fogler had advice for other no-maj’s involved in the promo:

Newcomer Callum Turner also posted his own photo, featuring a first look at (a bit of) Theseus Scamander’s super suave wand:

Victoria Yeates (Bunty) also showed her character’s decorative wand for her #WandsReady photo, and discussed her character’s role (as Newt’s assistant!) in a recent interview.

You can also watch an exciting teaser for the trailer below:

In the meantime, the Wizarding World appears to have undergone a rebrand…


Pottermore posted a handy guide to the new Wizarding World logo, which features an interactive graphic sharing more about each featured wand, representing nine witches and wizards who made a huge difference to the stories of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts. The logo includes the wands of (in order of appearance from left to right): Voldemort, Ron, Harry, Hermione, Dumbledore, Newt, Tina, Queenie and – excitingly enough – young Grindelwald!

“Before obtaining the Elder Wand, Grindelwald used another. He would later become obsessed with the Deathly Hallows, and steal the Elder Wand from the wandmaker Gregorovitch.”

See the wands close-up below:
