New ‘Fantastic Beasts 2’ Featurette Spotlights Dumbledore & Grindelwald’s History

Fantastic Beasts Albus Dumbledore

A new Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald featurette focuses on the history between Dumbledore and the eponymous villain.

The first Fantastic Beasts sequel will introduce Jude Law’s young Albus Dumbledore as he sends Newt Scamander on a mission to thwart the sinister plot of the powerful dark wizard Grindelwald. Now a new featurette with interviews from Jude Law, Johnny Depp, and J. K. Rowling explores the backstory between Dumbledore and Grindelwald before their relationship ended on a tragic note.

At the end of the first film, the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise wizards and witches up to rule over all non-magical beings.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

Directed by David Yates from a script written by J. K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Jude Law and Johnny Depp.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released in theaters on November 16,  2018.
