Jude Law has been cast to play a young Dumbledore in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them playing Harry Potter’s headmaster.

In the new movie, “Law will portray Dumbledore long before the iconic wizard became the Headmaster at Hogwarts, as he has been known in the Harry Potter books and movies. We meet him decades earlier when Dumbledore is still serving as the wizarding school’s Transfiguration professor. He is also a contemporary of Gellert Grindelwald, the charismatic dark wizard who believes wizards are superior to Muggles and No-Majs.”

 The script by J.K. Rowling is said to “move deeper into an increasingly dark time for the wizarding world, where Newt Scamander and our other heroes have to decide on their allegiances.”

Shooting for the sequel begins this summer. The untitled film is set to be released on November 16, 2018 just in time for the holidays.

Eddie Redmayne is expected to return and as is Johnny Depp.
