Eddie Redmayne recently sat down with Screen Rant, where he was asked about and was asked about the upcoming sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. As expected, Redmayne only had nice things to say about his friend and co-star.
“I had talked a little bit with Jo [Rowling] about what Newt and Dumbledore’s relationship was in the first film because it was alluded to. And then when they cast Jude, who I’ve known for a long time, it made such sense because there was a kind of debonair quality to him, but also like a playfulness that felt entirely appropriate, but also there’s kind of a weight to his… he’s got a weightiness, Dumbledore… Not physical weightiness [laughs] But when Jude arrived on set, he just looked so perfect. It all made complete sense.”
Jude Law will be introduced to the Fantastic Beasts franchise as Albus Dumbledore. Of course, the actor is portraying a younger version of the infamous Wizard, who was first introduced as the head teacher of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter books/movies.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald will land in theatres on November 16, 2018!
