Jude Law On Being Cast As Young Dumbledore In ‘Fantastic Beasts 2’

A couple of weeks ago, Warner Bros. Pictures made the official announcement that Sherlock Holmes’ Jude Law is joining the world of Harry Potter as a young Albus Dumbledore in the upcoming sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. In a new interview with BBC London, Law spoke for the first time about landing this iconic role who plays a huge role in the Harry Potter mythology.

“My first port of call I hope is to meet J.K. Rowling and to talk exactly about that and who he is and who she wants him to be and learn a little bit more about her vision of this great man as a young man.”

He also chatted about getting to work with David Yates who is back to helm the sequel. Law expressed a lot of excitement to work with someone like Yates who is no stranger to the world of Harry Potter.

“I’ve long admired and I’m looking forward to finally having the opportunity to work with him. I know he will brilliantly capture all the unexpected facets of Albus Dumbledore as J.K. Rowling reveals this very different time in his life,” Yates gushed.

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is available on Blu-Ray/DVD as well as on Digital HD. Fantastic Beasts 2, starring Eddie Redmayne, Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski, Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore, Ezra Miller as Credence Barebone and Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald, opens in theaters on November 16, 2018.
