The Final Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald Trailer is Here

Rowling has altered several details about her Harry Potter series after its conclusion, including the reveal that Albus Dumbledore is gay - a theme that will reportedly feature in Fantastic Beasts.

The serpent who acted as one of the Dark Lord's horcruxes was actually once a woman.

Yesterday's reveal that actress Claudia Kim is playing Nagini in Fantastic Beasts caused some fans to retaliate, and now J.K. Rowling is responding to accusations.

Following the release of the trailer, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that the shape-shifter Nagini, who eventually becomes Voldemort's Horcrux, will be joining the franchise.

There are theories suggesting that the Fantastic Beasts movies is going to be a Voldemort origin story.

In the final "Potter" installment, Neville helps Harry defeat Voldemort by slaying the snake with the Sword of Gryffindor. "You've only seen her as a Horcrux", she said.

However, following the release of a trailer showing Kim in character, online critics have taken issue with the casting and claimed that it is offensive to have her perform in a submissive role, a character trait routine ascribed to Asian women. "To add that she is one of the very few POC [people of colour] in the ['Harry Potter'] series, I think, is despicable".

That means Nagini suffers from a blood curse, knowing that one day she'll permanently be trapped as a snake.

"The slow transformation into a beast is beyond their control, but they aren't destined to be evil", Rowling clarified.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald hits theaters on November 18.

"The Naga are snake-like mythical creatures of Indonesian mythology, hence the name 'Nagini, '" Rowling writes. Fans also cried foul when it was announced that Depp, who's been embroiled in domestic abuse allegations involving ex-wife Amber Heard, would continue to play the titular villain.

Though the original tweeter accused Rowling of "suddenly" making this choice for Nagini, Rowling has said that there is nothing sudden about it.
