FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE SECRETS OF DUMBLEDORE ~ Global Press Conference

Fantastic Beasts

Albus Dumbledore is a man of mystery. He is such a central figure in the Harry Potter universe, but we ultimately know so little about him. In the first six Harry Potter books, the number of facts we really know about him can be counted on virtually one hand. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows gives us some tantalizing clues and tidbits about one brief period of his life, but ultimately falls short of providing us what we want to know. Well the wait is almost over. The wizarding war hinted at between Dumbledore and Grindelwald is about to move into high gear and we are going to see what happened so long before Harry was even born. We know the ultimate outcome of course, but that doesn’t mean the journey isn’t worth it.

ABOUT FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE SECRETS OF DUMBLEDORE

Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” is the newest adventure in the Wizarding World™ created by J.K. Rowling. Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers. But with the stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines? The film features an ensemble cast led by Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”), two-time Oscar nominee Jude Law (“Cold Mountain,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley”), Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Callum Turner, Jessica Williams, Katherine Waterston, and Mads Mikkelsen. “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” was directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling & Steve Kloves, based upon a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. The film was produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves, Lionel Wigram and Tim Lewis. Neil Blair, Danny Cohen, Josh Berger, Courtenay Valenti and Michael Sharp served as executive producers. The film’s behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography George Richmond (“Rocketman,” “Kingsman: The Golden Circle”), three-time Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig (“The English Patient,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “Gandhi,” the “Harry Potter” and “Fantastic Beasts” films) and production designer Neil Lamont (“Solo: A Star Wars Story,” “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”), four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (“Chicago,” “Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), and Yates’ longtime editor Mark Day (“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” the last four “Harry Potter” films). The music is by nine-time Oscar nominee James Newton Howard (“News of the World,” “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” “Defiance,” “Michael Clayton,” “The Hunger Games” films). Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Heyday Films Production, a David Yates film, “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore,” in theaters internationally beginning 7 April 2022 and in North America on April 15, 2022. The film will be distributed worldwide in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros.

What an interesting post, thanks for sharing! I am a big Harry Potter fan, but I have yet to watch any of the Fantastic Beasts movies! I am not sure why, I guess I just haven't found the time. I am definitely going to have to check them out now!

My daughter loves the HP books, but I'm not sure she has seen this. I'll have to ask her because I think this is right up her alley.
