Jude Law will play young Dumbledore in the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ sequel

Dumbledore and Jude Law Fantastic Beasts 3x4

The INSIDER Summary:

  • Variety is exclusively reporting Jude Law will play young Dumbledore.
  • It would be in the next “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” movie.
  • Fans love the alleged casting.
  • They’re making references to Jude Law’s HBO show, “The Young Pope.”

Variety is exclusively reporting that Jude Law has been tapped to play young Dumbledore in the next “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” movie.

As fans ourselves, we are thrilled to have Jude Law joining the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ cast, playing a character so universally adored,”  the president and chief content officer of Warner Bros. Pictures told Variety’s Justin Kroll.

The first “Fantastic Beasts” movie ended with Newt Scamander heading back to Europe, and the Dark wizard Grindelwald imprisoned by American wizard authorities.

Johnny Depp will also be returning for the sequel to “Fantastic Beasts,” reprising his role as Grindelwald. Since Dumbledore and Grindelwald were childhood best friends, we were sure we’d be seeing younger versions of both characters in the coming movies.

As INSIDER has previously reported, the next movie takes place in Paris and the United Kingdom. Maybe we’ll see young Dumbledore in Hogwarts as the Transfiguration professor.

Fans of Jude Law’s limited HBO series “The Young Pope” have already jumped on the similarities between his role as a young pope and now young Dumbledore.
