Mads Mikkelsen declares war on “muggles” in a new trailer for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts spinoff.
The actor who plays the evil wizard Gellert Grindelwald confronts Jude Law’s Albus Dumbledore in the new film: Dumbledore’s Secret.
The three-minute clip shows the epic struggles between two rival magical factions and a multitude of fantasy CGI creatures.
Amid the cheering crowd, who shot blue smoke into the air, Mikkelsen announced: “My brothers and sisters are near. Our war on muggles begins today. ”
“What you’re doing is crazy,” Law later told him as the two sat across from each other.
“I will burn their world with or without you,” Mikkelsen replied, as the room burned.
Joining Law and Mikkelsen come the return of franchise stars Eddy Redmayne and Dan Fogler, who reprise their respective roles as Newt Scamander and friendly merchandising Jacob Kowalski.
The trailer also shows Fogler, who is a muggle (who is not magical) receiving a wand from Redmayne, then asking “can I keep this?”
