The new trailer highly-Wizarding World film is out, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, debuted on December 13. The film takes place sometime after the events of The Crimes Of Grindelwald. Gellert Grindelwald is back, with a new face but the same mission — to bring the Wizarding World out of the shadows and rule over muggles. He has at his side both Queenie Goldstein, who betrayed her sister Tina and love Jacob to join him and is looking quite a bit eviler than before and the increasingly powerful Obscurus Credence. Fans will recall that in the final moments of the last film, we learned that Credence is supposedly Albus Dumbledore’s long-lost brother, Aurelius Dumbledore. In the trailer, Albus finally comes face to face with his little brother, engaging in an all-out magical battle on the streets of London.
However, before he does so, he also reunites with his other wayward brother, Aberforth, played by Chilling Adventures of Sabrina actor Richard Coyle. Aberforth is unimpressed with his brother’s mission to fight the dark wizard, especially when he takes stock of the team working with him: Newt Scamander and his brother Theseus; Newt’s assistant, Bunty; the late Leta Lestrange’s half-brother Yusuf; an Ilvermorny teacher; and Jacob Kowalski. The latest film in the franchise, which is set to hit theaters in April 2022 sees the return of Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, as well as Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein, Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, Ezra Miller as Credence, and Callum Turner as Theseus. The aforementioned Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore will obviously be the main focus of the film, as well his relationship with the villainous Gellert Grindelwald. However, for the third time, Dumbledore’s foe and secret past love will be played by a new actor. Following Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp, Mads Mikkelsen will take on the role, and the trailer marks the first time we see him in the full get-up. Johnny Depp was initially intended to continue on as Grindelwald for all set sequels but was replaced after his court battle with ex Amber Heard met its pique.
