The makers of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore have now revealed a fresh still from the film, which features Newt Scamander and his brother Theseus together, keeping fans on their toes since the release of the teaser.
Fans can see Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his brother Theseus (Callum Turner) working together after the loss of Leta Lestrange (Zoe Kravitz) in The Crimes of Grindelwald in new footage obtained by USA Today from the film, which is the long-awaited new addition to the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them series.
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, a prequel to the Harry Potter films from Warner Bros. Pictures, adds to the franchise's backstory.
The film will hit theatres on April 15, 2022, more than three years after the release of The Crimes of Grindelwald and with a new actor playing Gellert Grindelwald.
In the trailer released towards the end of 2021, the makers gave the first glimpse of Mads Mikkelsen as Grindelwald, who had replaced Johnny Depp in the series.
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will focus on the period of Dumbledore and Grindelwald's lives during which the dark wizard rose to prominence.
Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) is aware that Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen), a powerful dark wizard, is plotting to gain control of the wizarding world. He entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches, and one courageous Muggle baker on a risky expedition, where they battle Grindelwald's growing legion of followers and encounter old and new animals. But how long can Dumbledore stay on the sidelines when the stakes are so high?
The cast includes Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne, two-time nominee Jude Law, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Callum Turner, Jessica Williams, Katherine Waterston, and Mads Mikkelsen.
David Yates, who directed the first two films in the successful trilogy, is in charge of the third instalment.
