Mads Mikkelsen appears as the wizarding villain Grindelwald in the new teaser for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. For this prequel to J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books, Mikkelsen takes over from the troubled Johnny Depp.
In addition to Katherine Waterston, Jude Law, Ezra Miller, and Eddie Redmayne, the film stars Katherine Waterston, Jude Law, Ezra Miller, and Eddie Redmayne. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will be released on April 15th.
Following 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, in which Colin Farrell played Grindelwald, and 2018’s Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, in which Johnny Depp took over as the villain, this is the third film in the spinoff franchise. Due to Depp’s personal problems, Warner Bros. had to replace the character.
To get you in the mood, Warner Bros. issued a teaser of clips from the Harry Potter films, culminating with a preview from Fantastic Beasts 3 featuring Mikkelsen as Grindelwald.
