There’s only a couple weeks left until Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theatres.
Ahead of the release, Warner Brothers dropped a featurette that would focus on an important showdown that is coming up for the films: Dumbledore (Jude Law) versus Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). As any dedicated Potterhead will tell you, the victory that Dumbledore secured over Grindelwald catapulted him into fame in the Wizarding World.
In the featurette, J.K. Rowling, who wrote the script, talks about what drew her to Law for the role of the younger Dumbledore.
“So when I met Jude I basically told him everything that I’ve ever known about Dumbledore because without that knowledge Jude is playing someone who appears to be playing games with people’s lives and that’s not who Dumbledore is.”
Law felt this was a good time to explore the mysterious character, “Having the opportunity to go back and see what made the man that we all loved become who he was is a really rare and really extraordinary experience.”
The featurette was light on Grindelwald, which is understandable. The fact that Johnny Depp remained in the role after the abuse allegations from Amber Heard were brought to light remains a sore point for most of the Potter fandom.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will hit theatres November 16th.
