Wands At The Ready: The First Look At “Fantastic Beasts 2” Is Here

Fantastic Beasts posted a photo to their Twitter on Wednesday morning that sparked massive excitement in the Harry Potter fandom. It teased the potential plot for Fantastic Beasts 2, and fans totally saw it coming. Let’s take a look at the photo.

Many fans were quick to recognize the wand on the left as The Elder Wand, famously used by Albus Dumbledore for many years and, of course, one of the Deathly Hallows. But what about the wand on the right? Well, some are speculating that the wand belongs to none other than Gellert Grindelwald, and it totally makes sense!

The first Fantastic Beasts film ended with the introduction to Grindewald, played by Johnny Depp. And it has been announced that Jude Law will be playing a young Albus Dumbledore. The really interesting thing is that before Dumbledore had the Elder Wand, it originally belonged to Grindelwald. We know that Dumbledore dueled with Grindelwald and won the Elder Wand, but what we don’t know is when the next Fantastic Beasts takes place. Before or after the duel? If it’s before, the sequel to Fantastic Beasts could very well showcase one of the greatest duels in the history of the Wizarding World! Hopefully the answer will come tomorrow!
