What We Can Expect From ‘Fantastic Beasts 2’, According To The Film’s Producer

He’s got a hit playing in UK cinemas at the moment with Paddington 2 and has managed to launch a new world of wizarding wonder with ‘Fantastic Beasts’. David Heyman is riding the crest of a wave at the moment, particularly as one of his upcoming projects is the next Quentin Tarantino movie. Heyman has, however, been speaking about a production which is pretty much in the can, the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald. The producer was speaking to Entertainment Weekly about what we may expect from the big-budget sequel, due next year.

Here’s what he had to say to the outlet.

“We delve deeper into Jo’s wizarding world — we’re in Paris, we’re in London and New York — the world is expanding. As you can tell from the image, we’re following quite a few characters.

Is It Just Us, or Is Jude Law Scandalously Attractive as Albus Dumbledore?

  • BuzzSugar
This week, we were treated to the very first look at Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the highly anticipated sequel to the Harry Potter prequel. Yes, Eddie Redmayne and the whole cast look awesome and pensive, but as we peer closer at each character, the newbie we're really here for is Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore. Up until now, we've only known Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore as an older man with a great beard (first portrayed by Richard Harris, then Michael Gambon). He's a beloved, important character in the Harry Potter universe, and one of the few characters from the original series we get to see in the Fantastic Beasts spinoff, so this reveal of him as a younger man is significant for a number of reasons. What we weren't prepared for was for the young Dumbledore to be so . . . attractive. It feels almost a little wrong to say this,

Fantastic Beasts producer on casting Jude Law as Dumbledore in The Crimes of Grindelwald

This past week, Warner Bros. unveiled an official image from the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel – now titled Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – which included our very first look at Jude Law as the legendary wizard Albus Dumbledore.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts producer David Heyman discussed Law’s casting, stating what qualities he feels that the actor brings to the iconic role:

One of the reasons we chose Jude is he has many of the qualities we find in Dumbeldore 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

Fantastic Beasts Fans Are Outraged by Johnny Depp's Inclusion in the Sequel

  • BuzzSugar
The sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - the recently titled Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - has a problem that no amount of magic, movie or otherwise, is capable of fixing. A gorgeous photo of the film's cast was recently released, and while the addition of a few new characters is exciting, one familiar face has loyal fans of J.K. Rowling's story outraged: Johnny Depp. His appearance in the promotional photo shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who's seen the first movie; at the end of Fantastic Beasts, Colin Farrell's Graves is revealed to actually be the evil wizard Grindelwald in disguise, played by Depp. It's a shocking moment that kicks off the narrative for the next four films, which will follow the climactic clash between Grindelwald and a young Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law). In other words? Depp is going to be

Here’s Why Jude Law Was Cast As Young Dumbledore In Fantastic Beasts 2

The recent unveiling of the first cast photo for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the second entry in the Harry Potter spinoff series, was an exciting moment for fans as it gave us our first look at Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore. The sequel will explore the younger days of the beloved wizard that we previously got to know as an elderly Hogwarts headmaster (brilliantly played by both Richard Harris and Michael Gambon).

Picking the right actor to portray this fresh take on one of the most familiar characters in the Wizarding World was crucial, then, and after a much-scrutinized search, Law was eventually awarded the highly-coveted role. While chatting with EW, producer David Heyman was on hand to explain why the British actor was the perfect person to bring young Dumbledore to life.

“He’s got authority, he’s got a twinkle in his eye, he’s sometimes a bit elliptical.

Does The Fantastic Beasts 2 Cast Photo Confirm A Major Fan Theory?

Every serious Harry Potter fan will have seen yesterday’s atmospheric cast photo that introduces the major players of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. There’s a lot of information jammed into the pic, too, notably the confirmation that Johnny Depp will continue to play the titular dark wizard after his cameo at the end of Fantastic Beasts and our first proper look at Jude Law as a young (well, middle-aged) Albus Dumbledore.

But there’s more to this cast photo than meets the eye, and eagle-eyed fans have done a bit of detective work and concluded some very interesting things about Claudia Kim’s character, seen snuggling up to Ezra Miller’s Credence in the photo below. Billed as a ‘Maledictus,’ the press release describes her as “the carrier of a blood curse that destines her ultimately to transform into a beast.”

The upcoming sequel will see the return of characters from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them along with new faces including Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore.
