Young Dumbledore Cast for Fantastic Beasts Sequel

Big casting news from the wizarding world!

Warner Bros. Pictures announced that they have found their next Albus Dumbledore for the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Jude Law will be taking on the role of a young Dumbledore, who is serving as the Transfiguration professor in the latest film.

The latest installment in the franchise will feature a much darker, bleaker world, where Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) is becoming an even bigger threat. Ostensibly, Dumbledore will become involved in the fight to prevent the demise of the No-Majs. That’s right…Johnny Depp and Jude Law will duel!

Filming is set to begin in August, with the release date for the yet-to-be-titled picture coming on November 16, 2018. Get ready!
