WATCH: Trailer arrives for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

January 6th, 2022 by Marc Comments

Sorry for being late on this one, folks but between the site crashing, catching Covid and Christmas, it’s all been a bit mental.

A new trailer has arrived for the third Fantastic Beasts movie, The Secrets of Dumbledore with Mads Mikkelsen stepping in to replace Johnny Depp as the evil Gellert Grindelwald.

We’re hoping the movie can capture the tone and feel of the first Fantastic Beasts movie rather than the very lackluster sequel and, in all honesty, we’re pretty hopeful.

The film will star Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Ezra Miller as Credence Barebone/Aurelius Dumbledore, Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein, Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, William Nadylam as Yusuf Kama, Victoria Yeates as Bunty and Callum Turner as Theseus Scamander.

Set in the 1930s, the story leads up to the Wizarding World’s involvement in World War II and will explore the magical communities in Bhutan, Germany, and China in addition to previously established locations including Brazil, the United States and United Kingdom. With Grindelwald’s (Mads Mikkelsen) power rapidly growing, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) entrusts Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his friends on a mission that will lead to a clash with Grindelwald’s army and will lead Dumbledore to ponder how long he will stay on the sidelines in the approaching war.

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will open in theaters on April 8, 2022.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
