Jude Law Discusses Meeting with J.K. Rowling About Dumbledore
Posted by Megs

Jude Law spoke with Entertainment Tonight about Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald while at the Golden Globes last night. While speaking about how he prepared for his role as Young Albus Dumbledore, he said:

“Do you know what I did? I sat in a room for an afternoon with J.K. Rowling, and I listened to her extraordinary words of wisdom,” Law said of the Harry Potter scribe. “She was kind enough to share with me the whole backstory and her future hopes for this young character of Dumbledore and really that set me on the path. I just did what the writer said.”

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be arriving in theaters November 2018.

Jude Law Cast as Young Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts Sequel
Posted by Megs

Pottermore has announced this afternoon that Jude Law will be taking on the role of Young Dumbledore in the next Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film. The sequel to Fantastic Beasts is slated for release 16 November 2018, and filming begins this summer.  Three more films will follow after this sequel. According to the article:

The second film in the Fantastic Beasts series will show Dumbledore decades before he became Headmaster at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

At this point in the story he is the wizarding school’s Transfiguration professor and a contemporary of Gellert Grindelwald – the Dark wizard we met in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, played by Johnny Depp.

On the announcement Potter and Fantastic Beasts director David Yates said: “Jude Law is a phenomenally talented actor whose work I’ve long admired and I’m looking forward to finally having the opportunity to work with him. I know he will brilliantly capture all the unexpected facets of Albus Dumbledore as J.K. Rowling reveals this very different time in his life.”

The article also gives a tiny bit of information regarding the plot of this second film, which “takes the story deeper into an increasingly dark time for the wizarding world, where Newt and our other heroes must decide on their allegiances.”
