The Harry Potter universe is back on the big screen soon! The third installment of “Fantastic Beasts” will hit US theaters on April 15, 2022 and will be titled “Secrets of Dumbledore”.
After The Crimes of Grindelwald, it’s time for Dumbledore’s Secrets. The Warner has indeed revealed the title of the third installment of Fantastic Beasts, prequel to the adventures of Harry Potter, still directed by David Yates and whose US release is scheduled for April 15, 2022.
This remains to be confirmed of course, but the feature film should be released at the same time in France. And he will therefore oppose Jude Law, back in the guise of Dumbledore, to Mads Mikkelsen. The charismatic Danish actor succeeds Johnny Depp in the role of Grindelwald, the actor having been requested to leave the project by the production in November 2020, after a defamation lawsuit lost against the tabloid which accused him of domestic violence.
Alongside the two actors, who will face each other for the first time on the big screen, the cast will be made up of familiar faces from the saga launched in 2016. Starting with Eddie Redmayne, alias Norbert Dragonneau, hero of the story. Also expected in the credits are Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler or Ezra Miller, whose character had learned important information about his origins at the end of the previous opus.
No doubt this will be one of Dumbledore’s secrets teased by the title of the film, the release of which has been somewhat advanced. Because it was, until now, expected in July in world theaters. That Fantastic Beasts 3 finally opts for spring will be a big first for the Harry Potter saga as a whole, more used to making the event during the summer or at the end of the year.
Will the cast do as much for the show as for the release of episode 2?
