Breakdown of the trailer of “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore”

The trailer opens with a scene of Hogwarts while giving a sense of nostalgia to all viewers. Aged Albus Dumbledore played by Michael Gambon is heard saying “if you listen carefully, the past whispers to you”. This could be a hint towards the trauma of Dumbledore’s past blended with his future. Since the movie seems to be revolving around Albus Dumbledore, one can see how Dumbledore managed to save Hogwarts from the evil eye of Gellert Grindelwald.

We see Aberforth Dumbledore played by Richard Coyle, speaking to Newt Scamander played by Eddie Redmayne while revealing himself as Dumbledore’s brother but seems to look not much happy about that. We see the first look of Gellert Grindelwald of Mads Mikkelson probably removing memories from the head of Yusuf Kama played by William Nadylam. Then we see Dumbledore asking Theseus Scamander to trust him if they are going to be successful in defeating Grindelwald. We also see a shot where Newt looks incredibly excited to be traveling in the rainforest with his bow truckle.

A Brand New Country in Fantastic Beasts 3

In the third installment of the Fantastic Beasts movies, the viewers would get to see a brand new country. Newt Scamander travels to the magic school Castelobruxo in Brazil, a reference of which has also been made in the Harry Potter books but never shown in any of the movies. Just seeing the trailer doesn’t make it clear why Newt visits but it looks interesting and engaging to the audience. Newt is followed by Theseus listing the team of people trying to defeat Grindelwald. We also see Jacob being given a wand while having a massively surprised look on his face, indicating he was a wizard that also brings an explanation about he got his memory back.

Quidditch reference from Harry Potter

Thereafter, we see a quidditch player which indicates that the viewers might be seeing an adventurous quidditch match. The next shot shows Dumbledore waving his hand around a giant rock which shows that it might be an entrance to the magic school Castelobruxo. Then we see Aberforth asking his brother whether he is off to save the world again, in of course a sarcastic way. The next shot shows a Phoenix, likely to be Fawkes, flying down to Creedence.


This indicates that the phoenix might belong to Creedence but after he dies, it goes to Dumbledore. Then we see Jacob and Queenie reconciling but then it is heard “Things are not always as they appear”. This indicates that Queenie might have been with Jacob under false pretenses. Dumbledore is then seen holding a blood pact phial still not broken. The trailer also shows the scenes of two creatures just like other Fantastic Beast movies.

Next, we see Newt and some Aurors, probably the followers of Grindelwald, fighting. Quite a remarkable scene, where Jacob withstands a spell from Queenie with a wand in his hand. Then we see Creedence slice a curse that might be Pretigo which we had seen in the battle of Hogwarts. Then, Grindelwald says that the war with muggles begins. Then we Grindelwald in some bath which looks like some giant pensive for him to view the memories of Yusuf Kama.

The next we see is Creedence running towards Dumbledore with the intent of killing him. We also see a room of requirement with a spinning cylinder of some Buddhist relevance. The cylinder takes Dumbledore and Jacob insides it indicating that it might be some transporting device. The most interesting question arises here is why Jacob? This shows that Jacob is playing a much important role in the movie. We again see some flashes of magical creatures. Then it shows Aurelius unleashing full force on Dumbledore who just raises his hand and stops it. The final scene is Jacob advising the students not to touch his wand at Hogwarts because it can do some serious damage and revealed that he got his wand on Christmas.

The Release Date of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” is releasing in India and UK on 8th April 2022 and in the US on April 15th. The movie experienced a pause in its release date due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, the release date of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is finally on the internet and the happiness of potter heads knows no limits.

The Characters from Harry Potter Series

The main actors of the series would be Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, and Alisa Sudol along with Ezra Miller, Jude Law, and Callum Turner. Johnny Depp, who played Grindelwald in the first two movies of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, would not return for the third movie and the Grindelwald is played by Mads Mikkelson.


Prominent characters returning from the Harry Potter movies would be of course Albus Dumbledore and Aberforth Dumbledore. Aberforth was also seen in Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Viewers had hoped that they might see Ariana Dumbledore but she was nowhere to be seen in the trailer. Redmayne will return as Scamander, an employee in the Ministry of Magic, working in the department for the Regulation ad Control of Magical Creatures. Tina Goldstein is an auror on the Magical Congress of the United State of America. She also seems to be the love interest of Scamander. As the movie depicts, young Albus Dumbledore has a big role in the movie. We see Dan Folger returning as Jacob Kowalski, a World War 1 veteran and the love interest of Oueenie.

Another interesting thing seen in the movie is Muggles doing magic. The trailer shows a war being fought against Muggles. The only Muggle seen in the trailer is Jacob Kowalski played by Dan Fogler. The movie is still under wraps as the viewers are still unclear whether Jacob is a wizard or he has been disguised as a wizard in front of anti-muggle Grindelwald.

David Yates is the director of “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore”. Since 2007, Yates has been directing the movies of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts Franchise. The movie is produced by Heyman, Kloves, Lionel Wigram, Tim Lewis, and Rowling. The movie indeed promises a magical return to the magical world of Hogwarts. Harry Potter is a franchise that has been loved by all and those who don’t love it are the ones who haven’t seen it.

The Fantastic Beast series gives a view of the dreamy magical world once again and the viewers are just waiting for the movie to release. It may sound disappointing to many Potter heads as not many Harry potter characters are returning in the movie. But since the movie revolves around the great wizard of all times Albus Dumbledore, there is much more to look forward to in the franchise of Fantastic Beasts.
