CinemaCon 2018 - Warner Bros. Presentation

Eddie Redmayne attended the CinemaCon 2018 Warner Bros. Pictures 
'The Big Picture' event, held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, on Tuesday.

Eddie presented Will Arnett with a wand to introduce footage. 
The Crimes Of Grindelwald (screendaily)

Warner Bros. released new footage with a teenage Newt Scamander 
(Eddie Redmayne) receiving Defense Against the Dark Arts instruction 
at Hogwarts.  The footage generated a big laugh among attendees at the 
CinemaCon convention of theater owners in Las Vegas, with Jude Law 
portraying a young Albus Dumbledore as the bumbling Scamander faces a 
Boggart (a malevolent, shapeshifting spirit) and a desk appears. Dumbledore 
explains that it’s manifested as Scamander’s fear: having to work an 
office job. “This film, I get to go to Hogwarts, which is the best thing!” 
Redmayne proclaimed at the convention. (source: Variety)
"As someone who has grown up watching all of J.K. Rowling’s films,
I had always dreamt of going to Hogwarts and I felt a little short-changed
that I didn’t get to go to Hogwarts [in the first Fantastic Beasts film], so in
this film I get to go to Hogwarts…We all get to meet Dumbledore, who Jude
Law plays, and he has this amazing, quixotic, eccentric joy to him.” (EW)

Dumbledore has the following conversation with Newt: 
Dumbledore: You’ve heard rumors Grindelwald will 
rise to dominate the wizarding world. 
 Newt: You’re asking me to help? 
 Dumbledore: And to learn. I can’t move against 
Grindelwald. It has to be you. 

 After this follow some shots of the growing darkness – and maybe 
even a glimpse of Dumbledore looking into the Mirror of Erised! 
 According to reports, the trailer ends with a moment of humor from 
our beloved Jacob Kowalski and a familiar name that we will finally 
get to meet face to face: Nicolas Flamel! ‘Are you a ghost?’ 
Jacob asks a very old, pale man standing behind him.  
‘No, I’m alive, but I’m an alchemist, and therefore immortal,’ says 
the man before introducing himself as Nicolas Flamel. Later in the 
clip, Jacob tells Flamel, “You don’t look a day over 375.” 

 Other reports include details such as Grindelwald riding away on a sleigh, 
dark cats accompanying villains, and more scenes of London chaos.

 Meeting friends at the event.

Eddie hugs Gemma Chan who played Madam Ya Zhou in 'Fantastic Beasts and 
Where to Find Them'. She attended the event with the cast of 'Crazy Rich Asians'

“It’s a little magical. Pun absolutely intended.“
