Jacob Kowalski returns to the “Fantastic Beasts” series with the “Crimes of Grindelwald” trailer.
He’s a non-magical person who stumbles into Newt Scamander’s adventures.
At the end of the first movie, his memory was erased, so fans aren’t sure how he makes his way back.
When the first “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” trailer dropped, fans noticed that one beloved character was making a return: Jacob Kowalski.
In “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” Kowalski, played by Dan Fogler, is a No-Maj — the American term for a person without magical abilities, or muggle. He was inaugurated into the world of magic when he stumbled into Newt Scamander’s quest to get all of his escaped creatures back into his briefcase. As Scamander’s romp through New York City turned into a full-blown crisis for the magical community, Kowalski stayed by his side.
At the end of the movie, Queenie Goldstein, a witch who developed a romantic relationship with Kowalski, erased his memory. Still, there were flickers left. Kowalski opened a bake shop and found himself baking pastries in the shape of the magical creatures he encountered. And in the movie’s last moments, we see Queenie enter his bakery.
While we knew Kowalski would be back in the sequel, fans are happy to see him again. In the trailer, we see him walking behind Scamander through a dark stone hallway, noticing a magical owl-like creature on a windowsill behind him, and agreeing to join Scamander on a new adventure.

It’s not clear yet how Kowalski comes back. Will his memory be fully restored? Did he stumble upon Scamander’s world again, or did Scamander purposefully recruit him? Did Queenie restore his memory, or did it come back on its own? Does he go to Paris, where much of the rest of the movie takes place?
We’ll find out on November 16, when “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” hits theaters.
