“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is the sort of spin-off, “prequel” to the Harry Potter story that takes place many years before Harry ever attends the school (or was even born), and its sequel was just announced.
The role of Dumbledore, Hogwarts Headmaster, will be played by Jude Law. In this past time, he’s not the Headmaster yet, but as Transfiguration professor. Also, author J.K. Rowling has hinted that Dumbledore will be an openly gay character.
Production on the movie should start this summer, and they’re looking to release the movie by November 2018. Also starring in the movie are Johnny Depp and Zoe Kravitz, who of course is the daughter of Lenny Kravitz.
