Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is being directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling, and produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.

This utter destruction of the delicate continuity from the Fantastic Beasts series to the Harry Potter books could set a risky precedent for the remaining films in the franchise, as who knows how much more tinkering the producers might do to the fictional universe's set of rules.

Professor McGonagall is coming to your iPhone.

The movie has its first screenings for fans over the weekend, and the "Harry Potter" author - whose original novels inspired the current spin-off film franchise - is very grateful for those who have been able to keep important plot points to themselves. The video shows Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) fighting his brother.

As superfans will tell you, McGonagall is widely considered by fans to have actually been born in October 1935. The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.


Fans claimed the film lived up to its hype.

Controversy aside, it's unclear what McGonagall's role in the new film will be. But that's not sitting well with everyone, from the casuals to even some hardcore Harry Potter fans.

But we also know that things tend to connect in the Wizarding World, and it would be interesting to see the filmmakers weave McGonagall's story into Newt's somehow.

The much-anticipated sequel of the fantasy film, Fantastic Beasts, is about to hit the screens soon. So, fingers crossed that she at least gets an action sequence or two during Fantastic Beasts.
