First Look At Fantastic Beasts 2 Shows Jude Law As Dumbledore

It's safe to say that when the Harry Potter series all came to a conclusion, we were all left with a huge magical void in our lives.

Thankfully, a few years down the line, the legendary J.K Rowling conjured up a prequel to the franchise in Fantastic Beasts, and thankfully the first film, starring Eddie Redmayne, satisfied all our magical needs.

A teaser clip for the next Fantastic Beasts sequel has just dropped, and, just as anyone would expect, it looks sick...

The official Twitter account for Fantastic Beasts posted the exciting news on its feed, captioning the clip: "In one year, return to the Wizarding World with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald ."

Fans obviously went wild for the clip, and praised the teaser on social media.


"Wow! I did NOT expect that to be the name for Fantastic Beasts 2. I love it," gushed one Fantastic Beasts fan.

A second added: "This just made my entire week." MINE TOO.

"I'm so happy I could cry!! Oh wait," exclaimed a third.

A final fan replied: "CRYING WITH EXCITEMENT."

By the looks of the clip, it looks like the whole cast is back, and Johnny Depp is still Grindelwald and Eddie is still Newt Scamander. It has also been reported that Jude Law has been cast as a younger Dumbledore.

While the next film is still a full year away, fans have also been analysing another Tweet posted by Fantastic Beasts which looks pretty innocent at first sight.

However, one fan quickly came up with a theory of their own about the image, which showed two wands together.

They tweeted: "If my memory serves me right, the Elder Wand at this point of time would probably belong to Grindelwald, right? So the wand on the right must be Dumbledore's old wand?"

This would make sense, as we know that the franchise is heading to a showdown between Grindelwald and Dumbledore back in 1945.

The excitement is real!
