A teaser for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald, which forms the latest in the spin-off Harry Potter series, left fans both ecstatic and disappointed.
The trailer shows the Minister for Magic and a group of men apparating - a magical form of travel used by witches and wizards at Hogwarts.
However, J.K Rowling’s books clearly claim that nobody is able to apparate into the grounds of Hogwarts except for headmaster Albus Dumbledore.
A wave of fans took to social media to argue over the “glaring plot hole” and to bash director David Yates, who directed the final four Harry Potter films. Others debated whether the rule would have been in place if the movies are set pre-Harry Potter.
Okay Potter fans I know some of you are Mad Online™ but what if events in this movie ARE the reason you can't Apparate onto the Hogwarts grounds HMMM— Proma (@promawhatup) March 13, 2018
This isn’t nitpicking. The inability to apparate within hogwarts is an important plot device in nearly every book!— Kyleen Breslin (@kbreslin624) March 13, 2018
