At 0:00 on March 29th, Beijing time, the latest work of the “Fantastic Beasts” series “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” held its world premiere online.
Director David Yates, starring Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Mads Mikkelsen and other main creators appeared and shared about this upcoming film.
As the title suggests, “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” will reveal a previously unknown love-hate relationship between Dumbledore and his best friend and most powerful dark wizard, Grindelwald.
To fight evil, Newt will unite wizards, Muggles and even magical beasts to help Dumbledore deal with dangers and challenges.
As a “Harry Potter” spin-off series, fans have been looking forward to the fantasy linkage between Newt and Hogwarts.
In this episode of “Fantastic Beasts”, Newt finally returns to wizarding school. This made Eddie himself quite excited, and he remembered that everyone went to Hogsmeade village to shoot first, and also drank “Butterbeer”.
And the moment you actually enter the iconic hall of Hogwarts, the joy of that dream shining into reality is indescribable.
Jude Law reprises his role as the wizarding world’s greatest wizard in “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore”.
He admitted that he not only watched the previous works of the “Harry Potter” series many times, but also “researched” several other Dumbledore actors.
But after all, Dumbledore in “Fantastic Beasts” is not a “complete” form, and Jude Law also interprets this difference differently.
He looked forward to retaining the wisdom and nobility that the great wizard should have, while also presenting a Dumbledore who was not perfect in his growth.
And Eddie also said that in the “Fantastic Beasts” version of Dumbledore, in addition to Newt’s “leadership”, the relationship between the two is more like a brotherhood.
“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” is the most anticipated by many viewers is Dumbledore and Grindelwald’s opposite scene.
At the premiere, Jude Law said that everyone spent a long time imagining how they would meet and get along.
“In my understanding, I think that Dumbledore before Grindelwald was probably lonely, because he was so magical and so talented that few people could understand him. So, at that time, meeting someone who was just as outstanding as he was. Like-minded partners, the relationship will be strong and make him feel joy and special.”
Jude Law laughed and said that because Grindelwald had many different views from his own, the two sides also quarreled many times.
At the scene, Mikkelsen, who played Grindelwald, was also possessed by a “dark wizard” and retorted: “It’s your opinion that is different from mine.”
Mikkelsen believes that in this work, he and Jude Law and all the main creators including Eddie are trying to “realize” the relationship and contradiction between the two wizards.
Although many of the differences are related to magic, they work hard to remove this sense of division and make their stories real, real scenes, real conflicts, and real disappointment with each other.
On April 8, “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” will be officially released in China. It is reported that there are many Chinese elements in the film.
At the premiere, when asked “If you could bring a magical animal in the magical world into reality, who would you choose?”, the creators also unanimously chose “Qi Lin” from China.
We’re also very much looking forward to seeing through the film why it’s so popular.
