When J K Rowling revealed the new Fantastic Beast movies, lots of Harry Potter fans were a little nervous.

Obviously the opportunity to spent more time in her amazing wizarding world is exciting, but how could they possibly live up to the original books and films?

But when the first movie finally hit out screens back in 2016, most were actually quite impressed with the new, albeit very different, take on Harry's world.

And this week we got out first peek at the second movie - Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

But after watching the long-awaited clip, many Harry Potter fans were not happy after spotting a glaring issue with it.

The clip shows a group of people apparating in Hogwarts Castle.

Now everyone knows you can't apparate in Hogwarts thanks to a series of spells put in place to protect the castle.

It's something that's mentioned in pretty much all of the books, and it's a key part of most of the plots.

But some fans suggested that maybe the strict rules were added after the events featured in the Fantastic Beasts movie.


The books clearly say that the castle has ALWAYS been protected by spells and restrictions.

However many people are pointing out that they wouldn't have just forgotten this, and it must be in there for an important reason.

So who knows what's going on, but one thing is for sure - we can't wait to find out.
