New FANTASTIC BEASTS 2 Featurette Focuses on Dumbledore, Three Clips, and a TV Spot
Warner Bros. has released a new featurette and three clips from director David Yates’ Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
The featurette puts the spotlight on Jude Law’s version of young Dumbledore. I was happy to see Law cast in the role and he’s been great in everything that we’ve seen from him in the film. This movie will explore what made the man that the fans all love and this video includes interviews with several members of the cast and crew sharing their thoughts on the iconic character.
You’ll also find three clips from the film including an extended scene that includes Albus Dumbledore tasking Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) with finding the recently escaped Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). The second clips offers a scene involving Newt and Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston. Then the third shows Grindelwald addressing a crowd of witches and wizards trying to get them to support his cause and he’s doing a pretty good job at it.
I also included a new TV spot from the film.
Here’s the synopsis:
At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
The cast of the film also include Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released on November 16, 2018.
