The second trailer for “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” held nothing back, and we finally get to see some interaction between Jude Law’s Dumbledore and Mads Mikkelson’s Gellert Grindlewald. The Grindlewald actor swap might be difficult to see past at times, but it certainly looks like Mikkelson has made this character all his own, and it doesn’t look like his performance is going to bother anyone.
Thankfully, we got another look at some of the cute (and terrifying) creatures that will be appearing in the film. The trilogy has not forgotten its beginnings, and fantastic beasts are still very much a part of this franchise. Newt has his pulse on those creatures more than ever, and his talents are clearly going to come in handy in this third film. Don’t expect everything to be tied up neatly with a bow when this is all said and done, as “Fantastic Beasts” is meant to be a five-movie series.
“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” lands in theaters on April 15.
