The Harry Potter universe continues this April Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, and the wizarding world could certainly use a hero in its darkest hour. But since Harry won’t be born for several decades, the wizards will only have to come to terms with Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), the film’s unlikely protagonist Fantastic Beasts movies. Newt isn’t the most powerful wizard, but perhaps one of the few who can stand up to Gellert Grindelwald.
And what about Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law)? Perhaps the second most powerful wizard in the world is stuck on the sidelines because he was once Grindelwald’s lover. But that emotional connection isn’t the reason Dumbledore can’t stop his ex. That’s because Dumbledore and Grindelwald made a magical pact to never harm each other. Grindelwald has already found his solution by convincing Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller) that he is Dumbledore’s lost brother Aurelius and that he must kill Dumbledore in revenge. Thankfully, the new trailer suggests that Dumbledore may have found his release from bondage as well. And that means we’ll finally see Dumbledore square off against Grindelwald directly.
One of the most fascinating aspects of the new Secrets of Dumbledore Trailer is that Newt’s Muggle friend Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler) now has his own wand. The first two films led us to believe that Jacob was just an ordinary man. Maybe he’s finally found the magic within himself, with a little nudge from Dumbledore. Jacob could use some power, especially since the woman he loves, Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol), has joined Grindelwald’s cause.
Since Johnny Depp is no longer playing Grindelwald, Hannibal Star Mads Mikkelsen has taken on the role going forward. Katherine Waterston also stars as Tina Goldstein in the film, with Callum Turner as Theseus Scamander, Jessica Williams as Professor Eulalie “Lally” Hicks, William Nadylam as Yusuf Kama, Poppy Corby-Tuech as Vinda Rosier, Victoria Yeates as Bunty, Richard Coyle as Aberforth Dumbledore, Maria Fernanda Cândido as Vicência Santos, Oliver Masucci as Anton Vogel, Fiona Glascott as Minerva McGonagall, Aleksandr Kuznetsov as Helmut and Dave Wong as Liu Tao.
Directed by David Yates from a screenplay by JK Rowling and Steve Kloves. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore hits theaters on April 15th.
