As promised, Warner Bros. has officially released the first full trailer for the latest instalment of the Wizarding World franchise, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore.
The latest instalment of the Harry Potter prequel series, which is set to be one of next years biggest blockbusters, promises to be a more serious and epic offering from the Wizarding World. The trailer gives us a magical first look at The Secrets Of Dumbledore, which finds Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) working together to defeat the villainous Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen). Speaking of Grindelwald, the trailer offers the first look at Mads Mikkelsen as the dangerous dark wizard- and it certainly looks like the actor is doing something different with the role!
Watch the trailer below:
Professor Albus Dumbledore knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers. But with the stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?
The screenplay for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore was written by Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling alongside screenwriter Steve Kloves, who worked on the Harry Potter movies. Filmmaker David Yates, who directed the first two Fantastic Beasts movies and four of the Harry Potter films, has returned to direct The Secrets Of Dumbledore.
Many of the characters you know and love from the first two Fantastic Beasts films will return, such as Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander and Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore along with Ezra Miller (Credence/Aurelius Dumbledore), Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein), Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski) and Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein). Comedian and actor Jessica Williams, who had a brief appearance in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, will return as Ilvermorny professor Eulalie ‘Lally’ Hicks, while Mads Mikkelsen will debut as the villainous Gellert Grindelwald.
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore will land in cinemas on April 15th 2022.
