Jude Law is going to portray the young Albus Dumbledore in the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” sequel. I thinks it is safe to say that it’s one of the best casting decisions Warner Brothers could have made. Jude Law as Dumbledore fully compensates Johnny Depp as the villain Grindelwald. As you know, Albus Dumbledore was a love interest to Grindelwald and they were a couple before he turned into a wizard Hitler. So, most probably, we are going to see that relationship unfold.
The shooting of the movie is going to start this November and David Yates is returning to direct the sequel. Much like Eddie Redmayne is returning to mumble its way through the movie as well.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them 2” hits theaters on November 16, 2018.
What do you think about such casting decision? Will Jude Law be able to top the performance of Michael Gambon?
