J.K. Rowling has defended her decision to cast Korean actress Claudia Kim as Nagini in the forthcoming Fantastic Beasts sequel.

The latest trailer for the highly anticipated film "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" has been released and it packed a ton of surprises for die-hard Potterheads.

If you read the book, you would remember that Nagini was Lord Voldemort's final and most closely protected horcrux in the Potter series that Harry destroyed in the final book after much struggle.

The nearly two and a half minute trailer promises action, surprises, wondrous visual effects, a strong Dumbledore/Newt bond, and a terrifyingly motivated villain in Johnny Depp's Grindelwald. Heck, as of right now, neither has FB2 on his IMDb page! But fans must note that these stills aren't new as they were scenes that were part of the Fantastic Beasts 2 final trailer. I can't confirm she has powers like wizards have.

Oh's criticism had some Harry Potter fans on the defensive, however as she pointed out, "Interesting to see such blind devotion to a flawed series. When you see the trailer, don't speak to each other until the end because there's a name you'll want to hear", the author said recently. "In this, she's a wonderful and vulnerable woman who wants to live", she said. Given that we don't know her true role in the film, I think it's a bit premature to scream outrage at this point.

I'll confess: I'm a big Harry Potter fan, but I thought the first Fantastic Beasts movie was a little bland.

As soon as that detail was revealed, people were quick to speculate that Nagini must be an Animagus, like Peter Pettigrew (aka Wormtail) - prompting J.K. Rowling herself to quickly set the record straight. In the books, Nagini's character is devoid of any humanity and is ultimately killed by Neville Longbottom in the Battle of Hogwarts.

Rowling has previously attracted praise for her support of the casting of Noma Dumezweni, a black actor, to play Hermione Granger in the London production of the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoe Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech also star.

The film is due to arrive in Irish cinemas on November 16.
