Warner Bros. has released new stills from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and I think I have the hots for Dumbledore.
I couldn’t have imagined a better pick than Jude Law. Honestly I could faint from looking at his smolder in this pic.
In the new film, Dumbledore is a Hogwarts teacher because you have to remember that he doesn’t become a headmaster until 1956. So basically in this first still he is probably sitting on the table in his office. Why didn’t my high school teachers look like this?
Moving on, this is around the time when he is asked to help catch Gellert Grindelwald. J.K. Rowling has revealed that Dumbledore is indeed gay and was in love with Grindelwald when they were younger. It’ll be interesting to see their dynamic, not just the characters but as actors too.
Grindelwald is being played by Johnny Depp, another great actor pick for the part. He’s nailed the villain look.
He is pictured here with Rosier (Poppy Corby-Tuech), one of his followers.
The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second film of the five in the series and is directed by David Yates. It is slated to be released in November of next year.
Here’s a bts set picture to hold you over until we get more. I’m all for that hat look on Dumbledore.
