Fantastic Beasts 3 – The Secrets of Dumbledore is coming to cinemas in April 2022 and we have the magical first trailer to whet the appetite.
On December 13, Warner Bros released the trailer for the delayed threequel which looks like it'll be worth the wait. If that's not an early Christmas treat for Harry Potter fans, we don't know what is.
For many fans of the wizarding world of Harry Potter, the Fantastic Beasts series was a wonderful way to rejoin the magical universe. Whatever your feelings are on the quality of the films, they're certainly awash with all your magical staples: cute creatures (nifflers, duh) and high stakes (the demise of humanity?).
"If you listen carefully enough, the past whispers to you," young Dumbledore echos, as the trailer opens with a sky view of Hogwarts and Michael Gambon's Dumbledore before Law makes an appearance. "The world as we know it is coming undone."
It then flashes to Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler) meeting Aberforth Dumbledore (Richard Coyle) in their search for Dumbledore.
Directed by David Yates, the third film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise will dive deeper into the high-stakes relationship between Grindelwald and Dumbledore, unlocking the story of these two legendary wizards and an inside look at the complicated and enigmatic Dumbledore.
The teaser gives us a look at Mads Mikkelsen as Gellert Grindelwald, the villain role played by Johnny Depp in the first two instalments. Depp has since been recast.
"Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore" also stars Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Callum Turner and Ezra Miller.
Harry Potter fans have a lot to look forward to in the coming months, like Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, as well as many original cast members, are reuniting for a 20th-anniversary special airing New Year's Day on HBO Max.
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will be released on April 15, 2022.
As mentioned above, the first trailer arrived on December 13. Here is the complete trailer-
