The "Crimes of Grindelwald" Trailer Almost Makes Up For My Missing Hogwarts Letter

The "Crimes of Grindelwald" Trailer Almost Makes Up For My Missing Hogwarts Letter

When the teaser appeared on my twitter timeline this week, I was the least to say unprepared and filled with anticipation.

The "Crimes of Grindelwald" Trailer Almost Makes Up For My Missing Hogwarts Letter

There are only three movie teaser trailers that have surprised me to the point of pure excitement in my entire life. The first one being the ‘The Last Jedi’ trailer which caught me at such an unprepared moment, the ‘Incredibles 2’ trailer which I thought would never come, and the teaser that just came out this week, ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crime of Grindelwald’.

I truly believed that the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie would be a stand-alone movie and never in a million years thought that a sequel was going along with it. When the teaser appeared on my twitter timeline this week, I was the least to say unprepared and filled with anticipation. So in the spirit of magic and the wizarding world, I thought what better idea than spend every waking moment over-analyzing the teaser until the official trailer comes out.

The trailer starts out in a way better than no other- a view of our favorite place, Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. White clouds and curious eyes follow several people from the Ministry of Magic as they make their way to a certain professors’ study. Through conversation, it’s revealed that the professor is none other than our favorite man, Albus Dumbledore, young and handsome of course. He denies allegations made against him that he’s helping aide Newt Scamander, the protagonist of the this and the last ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie, who’s currently in Paris against the Ministries wishes.

Many scenes in the trailer teaser show that a battle is brewing between the ‘good’ and the ‘darkness’ of magic. Grindelwald, a masked villain and revealed antagonist in this movie, is very much like Lord Voldemort in terms of ambitions and goals. Seeming to want some power reign or change in government, wizards and witches are in for a battle of the century. Because this movie takes place during the mid-1900’s, it’s easy to speculate that maybe this is the cause of World War 2 for the wizarding world.

The plot of this movie seems like nothing new. Movies that battle the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ are overdone and cliché, but with a magical aspect and elements of Harry Potter it may surprise me more than I think. The main characters have those whimsical elements that many are used too and aren’t filler characters which prove their relevancy throughout the teaser, and the movie carries the same action and humor that the prequel holds as well.

Am I going to see the ‘Curse of Grindelwald’? Absolutely. Anything that has to do with J.K Rowling’s literary works is going to steal all my money no matter if I like it or not.

The Wizarding World has been a staple of popular culture for decades. Even though the Harry Potter franchise ended with ‘The Deathly Hollows’ in 2011, everyone still talks about it. The theme park in Orlando, Florida, King’s Cross station in London, the magic of witches and wizards still fills the air. That’s why the excitement hasn’t changed around this teaser. Harry Potter sells, no matter how much or little it actually has to do with it.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
