Little by little, the Fantastic Beasts movies are filling in necessary backstory within the Harry Potter mythology. We realized a couple of key particulars of the early days of the wizarding world within the first Improbable Beasts film. However with important characters like Albus Dumbledore (Jude Legislation) and Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) finally showing up, we anticipate much more storylines to develop… together with the present location of the Elder Wand.
The Elder Wand is believed to be essentially the most highly effective wand in existence. It has a protracted and lethal historical past, and has modified arms a number of occasions (in keeping with the story instructed by Garrick Ollivander within the Harry Potter movies). It’s the first of the Deathly Hallows, and it has deep connections to loss of life. And in keeping with this photograph, in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the wand is within the arms of Gellert Grindelwald himself.
In line with the timeline of the Elder Wand — what we all know if it, anyway — it is sensible that Gellert Grindelwald would have the highly effective device at this section. The wand’s story is instructed within the “Story of the Three Brothers,” and traces its path by way of the murderous relationship between Antioch, Cadmus and Ignotus Peverell, who had been all cheated by Loss of life in a battle of wits. Over time, Harry Potter followers have mapped out the lineage of the Elder Wand, noting that it has been within the arms of everybody from Emeric the Evil to Hereward. And finally, it landed within the possession of Grindelwald.
The studio teased the wand in a Fb publish proper earlier than the solid picture landed.
The wand on the left is the Elder Wand, which we see in Johnny Depp’s hand within the solid shot. The wand on the suitable is Albus Dumbledore’s. And rattling, these two wands are going for use in an EPIC confrontation… finally.
Dumbledore is understood to have acquired the wand from Grindelwald when the 2 wizards confronted off in 1945. It stayed in Dumbledore’s possession till it discovered its new proprietor, Draco Malfoy, who by no means really took possession of the wand. Dumbledore was buried with it, and it was later stolen by Lord Voldemort. The ultimate proprietor of the wand can be Harry Potter himself.
At this time, we realized that the second film on this franchise will likely be referred to as Improbable Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. It is going to be in theaters on November 16, 2018. And we’re not completed but. Tomorrow, we’re anticipating one more reveal from the wizarding world (probably a trailer?) as followers prepare for the subsequent huge step on this superb collection. Maintain it locked right here for that replace, and head here to search out out what else is opening in 2018.
