Ten Hogwarts movies down, one to go.  It’s been four years since we posted the trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald here at borg.  Now we’re only six weeks away from the final movie in the Fantastic Beasts trilogy, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of DumbledoreWill the eleventh movie in J.K. Rowling’s fantasy universe be the last?  Six years ago Rowling mentioned she had thoughts on two more movies, but no action has been taken since as far as pre-production goes.  So this could be the end.

Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) knows dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving to seize control of the wizarding world.  Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to lead an intrepid team where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers.  How long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?
