Johnny Depp appears on stage as his character Grindelwald to debut the trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald during day three of 2018 Comic-Con on Saturday (July 21) in San Diego, Calif.

The 55-year-old actor surprised fans with his appearance at the event and he joined co-stars Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoe Kravitz, Callum Turner, and Claudia Kim.

The cast members were asked what they would do with magical powers if they had them in real life.

“Impeach Trump,” Zoe said. “I’ll take impeachment, but we could go further than that.”

“I’d destroy the patriarchy,” Ezra, who was dressed in a sexy Toadette costume, replied.

Make sure to watch the trailer that was debuted during the panel!

'Fantastic Beasts' Comic-Con Trailer Reveals Jude Law as Young Dumbledore!

A new trailer for the upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has been revealed and it gives us great footage of Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore.

The trailer debuted at 2018 Comic-Con on Saturday morning (July 21) with most of the cast in attendance.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

Also starring in the movie are Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoe Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, Carmen Ejogo, and more. The film hits theaters on November 16.

Jude Law Speaks About Dumbledore's Sexuality for the First Time

Jude Law will be playing Young Dumbledore in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and he’s now breaking his silence about what J.K. Rowling told him about her famous character.

Jo Rowling revealed some years back that Dumbledore was gay. That was a question I actually asked Jo and she said, yes, he’s gay,” Jude told EW. “But as with humans, your sexuality doesn’t necessarily define you; he’s multifaceted. I suppose the question is: How is Dumbledore’s sexuality depicted in this film? What you got to remember this is only the second Fantastic Beasts film in a series and what’s brilliant about Jo’s writing is how she reveals her characters, peels them to the heart over time.”

Jude continued, “You’re just getting to know Albus in this film, and there’s obviously a lot more to come. We learn a little about his past in the beginning of this film, and characters and their relationships will unfold naturally which I’m excited to reveal. But we’re not going to reveal everything all at once.”

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will hit theaters on November 16.

'Fantastic Beasts' Sequel Won't Explore Dumbledore's Sexuality

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald gives a first look at a young Dumbledore, but his sexuality won’t be a part of the storyline.

Director David Yates recently spoke about Dumbledore and his relationship with Grindewald.

“Not explicitly,” he told EW about the film exploring his sexuality. “But I think all the fans are aware of that. He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were young men. They fell in love with each other’s ideas, and ideology and each other.”

Harry Potter author JK Rowling revealed the news of the wizard’s sexuality back in 2007.

“He’s a maverick and a rebel and he’s an inspiring teacher at Hogwarts,” David dished about Dumbledore, played by Jude Law. “He’s witty and has a bit of edge. He’s not this elder statesman. He’s a really kinetic guy. And opposite Johnny Depp as Grindelwald, they make an incredible pairing.”

There will be three more movies in the Fantastic Beasts series, so the exploration of Dumbledore’s sexuality isn’t out of the question just yet.
