Last Fantastic Beasts 2 Trailer Features A Major Harry Potter Twist

Claudia Kim's character has upset fans of the Harry Potter spin off Fantastic Beasts

It was shown in the latest trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald that Nagini, Lord Voldemort's snake companion in the Harry Potter series, was an Asian woman decades before the events of the books and films. Personally, I don't think this is a problem and think it's good to give a more representation, especially when it's clear the fate of the character is linked to the culture being represented. The monstrous snake is essentially Voldemort's best friend, and it looks like we are getting some back history on her. Claudia Kim plays Maledictus, which is more of a title than a name.

We finally know who Claudia Kim is playing in "Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald", and not everyone is pleased.

The final trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald features quite a major character reveal, one which has sent shockwaves through the Harry Potter fandom.

Author J.K. Rowling has answered some fan questions on Twitter regarding the big reveal and has explained Nagini is not an Animagus, like Peter Pettigrew, but actually a Maledictus. "She has powers that are yet to be explored", Kim said.

Earlier in the week, when fans began to tweet their reactions, J.K. Rowling gleefully responded, showing no surprise that people were shocked.

Christine Blasey Ford Testifies About Brett Kavanaugh Allegations
Nothing on the calendar appears to mention Ford, who has said she was a "friendly acquaintance" of Kavanaugh's at the time. The Iowa Republican promised a "safe, comfortable and dignified" atmosphere Thursday as his committee hears from both.

Given Kim's description of Nagini as "wonderful", it will be interesting to see how the character goes from that description to Voldemort's No. 1 killing machine - remember, Nagini was the one who killed Severus Snape in the Battle of Hogwarts. "An Asian woman who was on exhibit in a circus ..." I'll be the first to say that the Harry Potter series made me want to write children's books.

"I can not move against Grindelwald", Dumbledore replies, hinting not only at their childhood friendship, but also, as revealed by Rowling, their romance.

But Rowling has since defended her decision, calmly tweeting that the character is inspired by the Naga, of Indonesian mythology. You've only seen her as a Horcrux. Rowling wrote the movie's screenplay and serves as a producer for the film.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits cinemas November 17.
