See the Fantastic Beasts 3 Trailer
Updated: Feb 17, 2022
The new film from those folks over at the Wizarding World is coming.
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is set to continue next April, delving further into the battle between Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) and the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) - and the adventures of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) as he is somewhat swept along.
I know this series has had a rocky reception, thanks in large part to controversies surrounding both JK Rowling and Johnny Depp, the latter of whom was removed from the film following his court battle with The Sun.
But focussing on the films themselves, I have rather enjoyed the series so far. I really enjoy Redmayne as Newt and I was surprised by how much I liked Law as a young Dumbledore. If I'm honest, Mikkelsen was actually my first choice for Grindelwald, so I am intrigued to see him in action.
Anyway, the new trailer give us a taste of the building storm - and fans of Harry Potter lore know where this is all heading. I am, like many others, a bit bemused by Ezra Miller's revelation as Dumbledore's long-lost brother, but I'll ride it out and see where we land. The trailer promises a more fully-fledged wizard form of Credence, as well as more screen time for Newt's brother Theseus and assistant Bunty.
