An very exciting new trailer for the third Fantastic Beasts film has arrived!
Set in post-World War I Europe, that opening adventure was followed in 2018 with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
Production then, of course, hit further set backs due to the coronavirus pandemic, and faced a major casting upheaval with the role of Grindelwald being taken up by Casino Royale actor Mads Mikkelsen.
After all that, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is now at last due to launch in cinemas internationally from Thursday 7th April and in the US on Friday 15th April.
Jude Law returns as the young Albus Dumbledore, alongside Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Ezra Miller as Credence, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski, Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein, and Jessica Williams as Eulalie ‘Lally’ Hicks.
Back in the director’s chair is English filmmaker David Yates, who also helmed the previous two Fantastic Beasts movies and the final four Harry Potter movies.
The first teaser for The Secrets of Dumbledore debuted in December, and we’ve now got a brand new extended look at the excitement and danger that lies ahead for Newt Scamander and friends.
Watch the brand new trailer here:
The official synopsis for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore reads: “Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving to seize control of the wizarding world.
“Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) 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?”

A brilliant new DVD box set came out last year celebrating two decades of the Harry Potter movies.
(Yes, that fact made us feel very old too!)
The complete 10-film Wizarding World box set is available on DVD on Amazon.
