Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore - Not Long To Wait Now!
It seems a very long time since 2018's Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
It's sequel was due to start filming in early 2020 but like a lot of things in our own lives, was postponed due to the Covid pandemic. The production team also had to recast the film's key antagonist, with Mads Mikkelsen replacing Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald.

Eddie Redmayne however does return as the Ministry of Magic magical creatures expert, Newt Scamander. Can he survive the dangerous mission set by Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) that will take him, and his allies, in to the heart of Grindelwald's army?

Filming eventually got under way at Warner Bros' Leavesden Studios (just up the road from AotM HQ), in September 2020.
Joining Redmayne, Law and Mikkelsen are Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Callum Turner, Jessica Williams and Katherine Waterston in a story that explores the Wizarding World in the run up to World War II.

In the build up to the 8th April (UK) / 15th April (US) release, Warner Brothers have given us a sneak peak of the advance poster - and what a beauty it is!
We are on the hunt for physical copies and hope to have a few landed soon. Perhaps a Newt Scamander's Accio spell will help summon up a few for us!
[UPDATE: We have found a small number of the teaser posters!]
In the meantime, why not take a look at all of the Wizarding World movie posters that we have available?
