TheFantastic Beastsfranchise (also known as theHarry Potterprequel franchise that has less to do with fantastic beasts than filling in the Wizarding World''s backstory) returns next spring withFantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. Once again, Eddie Redmayne is a magizoologist, Jude Law is the young Albus Dumbledore, and Mads Mikkelsen is the evil wizard.
The director David Yates, who directed the four finalHarry Potter films and both previousBeasts films, is well-known among the producers Steve Kloves and J.K. Rowling. Below is the first trailer for the film, which was delayed significantly by the Covid-19 epidemic.
Here is the official film synopsis:
Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) knows that powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving to conquer control of the wizarding world. He requires Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches, and a powerful Muggle baker on a dangerous mission. But how long will Dumbledore last the day?
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will begin filming on April 15, 2022. At least as previously stated, the plot for the franchise requires five complete films, which means that there will be two more sequels to The Secrets of Dumbledore. However, if this one fails, it would certainly change.
