The Magic Continues: From Harry Potter to Fantastic Beasts Featurette

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, is the second of five planned movies set some 70 years before Rowling's best-selling Harry Potter books and movies, which are set in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

An old Harry Potter favourite is coming back. but why? There are plenty more reviews still to be counted, so expect that Tomatometer score to chop and change over the course of the weekend.

Based off of the fifth book, The Order of the Phoenix, fans have worked out that Professor McGonagall was born in 1935.

This, in turn, would mean that she graduated Hogwarts in 1954 - and, assuming she wouldn't have had to redo any years, she would have started Hogwarts in 1947.

Fiona has previously starred in the movie Brooklyn and the TV show Indian Summers.

Another said: "How is McGonagall going to be in the next fantastic beasts?".

But one eagle-eyed fan pointed out Minerva was named after her grandmother, so perhaps it's her grandmother appearing in the new film. And yes, there's more to it than just hot, young Dumbledore.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens in theaters on November 16th. The story picks up from where it was left in the first film.

The second movie in the instalment is said to include lots of action in and around the United Kingdom - including scenes at Hogwarts.
