New Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore character posters of both new and returning Harry Potter characters, have been unveiled by Warner Bros. Pictures. The third part in the Harry Potter spinoff series picks up in the 1930s and delves into the events leading up to the Wizarding World’s involvement in World War II, as Gellert Grindelwald’s influence continues to expand exponentially. The film is directed by David Yates and stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson. To strive and restore peace, Albus Dumbledore assembles a force of trustworthy people, commanded by Newt Scamander, in an effort to halt Grindelwald’s crusade. However, he is conflicted by his decision to not step on it.
Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law reprise their roles as Newt and the titular Hogwarts professor in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, with Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Callum Turner, Jessica Williams, and Katherine Waterston. The threequel also introduces Mads Mikkelsen as Grindelwald, who replaces Johnny Depp in the role following his legal fight with ex-wife Amber Heard. Following pushing back and recastings due to COVID-19, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is currently scheduled to open in theaters in April.
The official Wizarding World Twitter account has shed more light on the movie characters with a series of new Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore cast members posters ahead of the new trailer’s release this week.

The release of the new Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore character posters will definitely turn up the heat hardcore fans who have fallen for the prequel saga over the course of its first two installments. The new key art also reminds of the boundaries of choices, in this case, Alison Sudol’s Queenie, who chose to leave behind her sister Tina and lover Jacob after being persuaded by Grindelwald that he could make her dreams of marrying Jacob a reality. It’s worth noting that Katherine Waterston’s Tina is conspicuously absent from the collection of new character posters, despite the fact that she has been confirmed to be back for the film.
Just as with the prior film poster, the new Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore character posters showcase both sides of the Wizarding World delicately constructing the form of a phoenix. In J.K. Rowling’s novels, Dumbledore’s Patronus was a phoenix, and the future Hogwarts headmaster also had a phoenix as a pet named Fawkes. Given that the new film will place a greater emphasis on Law’s portrayal of the character, it’s understandable that the phoenix has served as a bit of recurrent imagery for the film’s marketing campaign. After a long delay, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will finally be released in cinemas on April 15, 2019.
