It’s time to get excited Potter / Scamander fans as yesterday Warner Bros. revealed the title of the new FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM movie and also a nice little teaser for the film that we’ve ever so conveniently popped just below for your viewing pleasure. Check it out folks:
Pretty nifty huh? FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD sees Newt Scamander (UK’s very own Eddie Redmayne) teaming up with his former teacher in order to hunt down the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp), and executive producer David Heyman spoke with Entertainment Weekly about why Jude Law was the perfect choice for the role.
“One of the reasons we chose Jude is he has many of the qualities we find in Dumbledore in the Potter films. He’s got authority, he’s got a twinkle in his eye, he’s sometimes a bit elliptical. So you have that but also have this youthful energy and jubilance. So he brings that twinkle, mischief, authority, and power, but at the same time brings far more youthful energy to the film. You understand why he would be your favorite teacher and be someone you believe is an extraordinary wizard.”
It will certainly be interesting to see a younger incarnation of Professor Dumbledor on the big screen and especially facing off against his former friend, Grindelwald. The movies is due for release on 16th November 2016.
