Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald New Stills + Promo Images

New promotional images of the cast and a brand new production still of Claudia Kim as Nagini have been released and we’re more than glad to share them with you on our photo gallery.

By the way, we do not subscribe to the accusation against J.K. Rowling about the racist note in Fantastic Beasts due to the fact that Nagini is played by an Asian actress. Ridiculous! That’s all we have to say to that.

Claudia Kim Breaks Silence on Playing Nagini in Fantastic Beasts

Actress Claudia Kim finally breaks the silence about playing Nagini in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

As the final trailer for The Crimes of Grindelwald just revealed, a big name from the Harry Potter books is a major part of the new Fantastic Beasts film. And yes, you’ve read correctly: the name you’re so familiar with is Nagini.

Until now, Warner Bros. hasn’t disclosed the name of the character played by South Korean actress Claudia Kim in the movie. Kim is none other than Nagini, a circus performer with a unique power who years later becomes Lord Voldemort’s trusty killer serpent and Horcrux. Check out the video above where Kim, after keeping this secret for more than a year, is finally allowed to publicly speak her character’s name for the first time.

In the new film, Nagini is a member of the traveling Circus Arcanus where she puts on a very convincing transformation act for muggles.

Kim says Nagini is far from the villain one might expect from a character who, after all, eventually kills Severus Snape. “It will be so interesting to see another side of Nagini,” Kim tells EW. “You’ve only seen her as a Horcrux.

I really suggest you simply go and see it for yourselves. The final trailer easily the darkest one yet and actually contains a couple big surprises. The headline coming out of this is that Claudia Kim’s character has been revealed and it’s a major name in the Harry Potter universe.

As we meet Nagini, she’s a member of the traveling Circus Arcanus where she puts on a very convincing transformation act for muggles. Check out EW’s exclusive new interview with Kim talking about her character here.

Another reveal: We see a glimpse of a flashback showing Dumbledore and Grindelwald back while they were students. That’s right, we now will have an even younger Dumbledore! It’s a brief shot in the trailer as they both touch the Mirror of Erised.

The trailer is also stuffed with magical action as an ensemble of characters prepare to contend with the dark wizard Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) following his escape from prison while being transferred to Europe. Grindelwald begins to gather followers using both seductive logic and menacing force.
