It’s the preview of the preview. The trailer for the trailer. But then, the young Dumbledore is a really big deal worth the hype.
This first look tease for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore — the third film in the Harry Potter prequel franchise — comes near the end of a video that largely serves as a hype reel meant to reinvigorate your passion for the Wizarding World. The tease for the Fantastic Beasts 3 trailer is simply the chef’s kiss at the end.
It includes new footage of Jude Law as the young Albus Dumbledore, as well as the initial peak at Mads Mikkelsen as the evil Grindelwald. He takes over for the unjustly canned Johnny Depp after Depp fell victim to the Twitter-rush of cancel culture.
Directed by David Yates (helming his sixth consecutive Wizarding World movie) with a screenplay by J.K. Rowling and Potter-movie vet Steve Kloves, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore materializes in movie theaters this spring on April 15, 2022.
