Eddie Redmayne gives life to the magician Newt Scamander in the first part of the new magic saga that opens, finally, this Friday, 18th of November.
Fantastic Beasts opens this Friday! But we have been collecting information about its sequel for several weeks, which will also be directed by David Yates and written by J.K. Rowling. The director already announced a few days ago that actor Johnny Depp, who had been confirmed for an unknown role, would play the villain of the new saga, Gellert Grindelwald, and that Albus Dumbledore himself would appear in the sequel. Now Rowling has confirmed that she has already thought a candidate to play the most powerful magician of all time.
“Of course I’ve thought about it and I already have a name. I have someone in mind but I can not say it.” Although the author refused to reveal the name in the interview, we know that it is more than likely that in the Fantastic Beasts sequel also explore the sexuality of the character, as he was in love with the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald.
The duel Dumbledore Vs. Grindewald
Albus Dumbledore is one of the most significant figures in the Harry Potter series and, although he did not become director of Hogwarts until the 60s, it seems that the life of the young Dumbledore has enough material to make it the thread of the JK Rowling’s next franchise, which will end in 1945, the year in which Grindewald was defeated. Will we see the mythical magical duel between both that ended with the legacy of the dark magician?
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them follows the adventures of the magician Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) in New York in the 1920s, where he will have to catch back the creatures that have escaped from his magical briefcase before panic in the city. Do not forget that it opens on November 18 and you can see the trailer under these lines.
