The second trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which was scheduled to drop this morning, has been delayed for the time being. Since The Batman is coming to theaters soon, a new trailer for the next Wizarding World installment was expected from Warner Bros., as they usually drop big trailers close to their major movie releases. A few days ago, the official Twitter page of the Fantastic Beasts film series posted a video which featured Jude Law (who plays Albus Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts series) announcing that the newest trailer for the upcoming third installment would be unveiled on Thursday, February 24.

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is the upcoming third installment of the Fantastic Beasts film series, which serves as a prequel story to the beloved Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Following the events of the second installment, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is still gathering his followers, and Hogwarts professor Albus Dumbledore (Law) is still hesitant to put a stop to the dark wizard himself. Alternatively, he assembles a team which includes magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), Newt’s brother Theseus Scamander (Callum Turner), Newt’s assistant Bunty (Victoria Yeates), Ilvermorny professor Lally Hicks (Jessica Williams), troubled wizard Yusuf Kama (William Nadylam), and No-Maj Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler) to hunt down Grindelwald in his stead. The first trailer for The Secrets of Dumbledore dropped in December.
This morning, the official Twitter page of the Fantastic Beasts film series announced that the highly anticipated trailer has been delayed. At this time, a reason has not been given for its delay. Read the official Twitter post below:
The eagerly awaited Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore trailer will not be revealed today. More to come very soon, thank you for your patience.

To further build the anticipation of the new Secrets of Dumbledore trailer, the Twitter page previously called for fans to share “anything Dumbledore-related,” such as cosplay, fan art, or tattoos, to join Dumbledore’s first army. This was part of the same post that included the video featuring Law. The next day, a slew of 18 new Secrets of Dumbledore character posters was unveiled on the page, raising the anticipation for the new trailer even more.
The most popular theory as to why this trailer has been postponed is the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Seeing as the Fantastic Beasts film series focuses on a global war between the magical and non-magical communities in the Wizarding World, many fans believe it would have been considered insensitive for Warner Bros. to release the trailer today. Until world events begin to stabilize, Warner Bros. may keep holding it off. A new release date for the trailer has not yet been announced, although it will most likely drop within the next few days.
The upcoming installment of the Fantastic Beasts series has been anticipated by Wizarding World fans around the world. It was one of the many films to have its production delayed by the pandemic, and so now that it’s only a couple of months away, the excitement is building. Even though the series has been met with mediocre feedback from critics, loyal fans remain just as exuberant as ever. Whenever Warner Bros. does decide to finally release the new trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, it will give all the faithful followers a lot to talk about.
