Jude Law To Play Young Dumbledore In Fantastic Beasts Sequel

Two-time Oscar nominated actor Jude Law is poised to play young Albus Dumbledore in the anticipated Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel.

With the story taking place several decades prior to the events of the first Harry Potter movie, Law's Dumbledore isn't the Headmaster at Hogwarts yet, instead we will see the iconic character still acting as the wizarding school's Transfiguration teacher.

The sequel will move into a darker territory, where Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and others will be forced to make a decision on where they stand, the side of good and oppose Gellert Grindelwald's (Johnny Depp) despicable ideology or the side of evil and follow Grindelwald's plans to presumably eradicate Muggles and No-Majs, whom he believes are inferior to wizards.

"Jude Law is a phenomenally talented actor whose work I have long admired, and I’m looking forward to finally having the opportunity to work with him," said director David Yates. "I know he will brilliantly capture all the unexpected facets of Albus Dumbledore as J.K. Rowling reveals this very different time in his life."

In the Potter universe, Dumbledore and Grindelwald became close friends while staying at Goderic's Hollow during their late teenage years. Through their shared love of powerful magical artifacts, their relationship grew, and Dumbledore had what appears to be an unrequited love for Grindelwald. This and other disagreements leads to a grand clash between the two.

Unfortunately, none are teenagers in the forthcoming film, so we shouldn't expect this part of their lives to play out on the big screen, the ramifications of their contentious relationship on the other hand we might.

Production on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 begins this summer for a November 16, 2018 release.
