A new (and final) trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has arrived, giving Harry Potter fans an extended peek at the next instalment in J.K. Rowling's expanding Wizarding World that is now in its third decade.
More than likely however this creature may be a grown-up Mandrake, a plant which has a root that looks like a human; when at the age of maturity the cry of a Mandrake can be fatal to anyone who hears it. "You've only seen her as a Horcrux", she told EW.
By the time we meet her in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Nagini is fully a snake (and later a horcrux).
Kim's character was listed as Maledictus on IMDb but that is what a witch or wizard is called when they carry a "blood curse" where the victim is destined "to transform into a beast", according to Pottermore. Holding his hand up to the mirror, Albus and Gellert are transformed into younger versions of themselves, with actor Jamie Campbell Bower even reprising his role as young Grindelwald from The Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2. Nagini does have some measure of control over her transformation in the trailer; she may not know the scope of her condition or will experience physical consequences of transforming regularly. In this, she's a wonderful and vulnerable woman who wants to live.
The new trailer also builds on Dumbledore's character, and it appears that his lust for Grindelwald will be explored to some degree.
The trailer finally reveals Claudia Kim's character and it's major name in the Harry Potter universe.
