Grab your wands and brooms – it’s almost time to return to Hogwarts. Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore arrives in April, and Warner Bros. just dropped a new look at the film.
The new trailer opens with a clip of Dumbledore as fans know him from the later Harry Potter films. As Michael Gambon’s Dumbledore gazes into the Pensieve, he reminds us “Memory is everything… without it, we leave the fate of our world to chance.”
The clip then cuts to our Fantastic Beasts young Dumbledore, played by Jude Law. The trailer goes on to focus more on the dynamic between Dumbledore and the dark wizard Grindelwald, which will be key to the film. In particular, fans get to see a lot more of Mads Mikkelsen as Grindelwald in this new look.
Check out the latest trailer for Secrets of Dumbledore below.
In Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, 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?
Additional stars from the previous Fantastic Beasts films will reprise their roles, including Dan Fogler (Jacob), Katherine Waterston (Tina), Ezra Miller (Credence/Aurelius Dumbledore), and Alison Sudol (Queenie). The film also stars Callum Turner, Jessica Williams, William Nadylam, and Fiona Glascott.
Secrets of Dumbledore comes from long-time Harry Potter veteran director David Yates. (Yates directed the previous two Fantastic Beasts films, as well as movies 5 through 8 of the original Harry Potter franchise.)
Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore premieres in theaters April 15.
