Trailers and movies on Social Media: #FantasticBeasts
Trailers are made to create a buzz about a movie. Some sagas are followed by millions of people all around the world. Sometimes it is not the saga that creates expectancy but the actors featuring the movie. For example, people will follow Clint Eastwood in almost every movie he is in. We can not write about the latest movie sagas and not mention the Harry Potter movies. Finally, #FantasticBeasts! Even though the first movie was released in 2001, this Wizarding World is followed nowadays by millions and trillions of people.
That’s why we have written several posts regarding this fantastic world: #HPCelebration or #HarryPotterBookNight. This Wizarding World has awaken now with the release of the Fantastic Beasts movies. The Crimes of Grindewald will be released next November 16th and we can not event wait. This last Tuesday the third and final trailer was launched and Twitter went crazy. Let’s go through the buzz #FantasticBeasts generated on Twitter!

For some viewers, three trailers may not seem enough. However, you have to pay attention as each trailer reveals new secrets about the movie and the saga. Main aspects about the trailers are: Dumbledore gives Newt directions for a safe house (what for?), Grindewald has escaped (oh, oh), Credence is still alive (good or bad?) and Jacob is back on Wizard sphere (yay!). But the main thing that left all of us speechless is one name: Nagini. Crazy, right? Let’s see how Twitter reacted to this revelation.
Nagini is back on Fantastic Beasts
As we have never heard that much about Nagini, her appearance in this trailer drove everyone crazy. Who is she? For how long has J.K. Rowling kept this a secret? Was this planned? Lots of questions where sent into the Twitter world, some of them even got an answer for J.K. Rowling herself. In fact, we have run a PRO report including just original tweets (RTs are excluded from this report) mentioning #FantasticBeasts AND Nagini.
There were more than 4,000 people tweeting about this Nagini issue. Seeing the number of potential impacts, it is safe to say that these numbers are incredibly good. 4,766 tweets were sent generating 81,333,590 potential impacts and potentially reaching 49,864,008 users.
