Post by Prof. Tarma Amelia Black » Thu Nov 16, 2017 7:12 pm

Pottermore has a brand new posting about the second of the Fantastic Beasts movies.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is due to be released one year from this date.

So long to wait! :ph34r:

Queenie and Jacob return, along with many from the first movie, and a few new people will show up too! *cheer*

yes! I was so excited to see Jacob's return, and am intrigued by Creedence's return.....

I'm pretty excited for this; though in my head i guess I always thought Dumbledore and Grindelwald were about the same age, but in the picture, partially due to the actor's faces, partially due to Grindelwald's white hair, he seems a lot older

I already knew that Grindelwald had pale blond hair -- and it doesn't seem much of a step to bleach it white.

As a young man, Grindelwald had golden blond hair and a "merry, wild" face.

I've seen too many folks around here with obviously dyed pale blond and/or pure white hair, who are apparently in their teens, to give much attention to hair colour as an indicator of age anymore! (I also saw one person with purple and blue hair, with a couple of streaks of green, which was awesome and great.) As for faces, well, one reaps what one sows? Grindelwald has not been a very nice person at all ...

I was at work when someone brought this to my attention. Thankfully we were in the break room, and I screamed out of pure excitement as I read the article. One of my managers came into check on us to make sure we were okay. haha It was awesome. So I got to go on this crazy dialogue about how amazing this movie is going to be and how excited I am for it, and the actors look perfect and Queenie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And Jacob!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going to love seeing them together again. And also...omg! WILL WE GET TO SEE THE DUEL BETWEEN GRINDELWALD AND DUMBLEDORE IN THIS?????

I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!

I received an email from Pottermore and I immediately looked at it. Jude Law as Dumbledore looks amazing! I think the cast will really put itself together soon. I also love Leta Lestrange.

When I was looking at Jude Law as Dumbledore, he reminded me of someone. I never heard the name Jude Law in my life before, and yet he looks familiar. Are there other actors or famous movies Jude Law played in?

Also, do you think Johnny Depp makes for a good Grindelwald?

Just one year...

My strongest memory of Jude Law is as Watson in the Sherlock Holmes movies. He's been in many movies, though, and also acted on stage. He does look amazing as Dumbledore, doesn't he! The look of him is similar enough to Michael Gambon, and I think there is some makeup devices to aid that along. The feel of him, though, is very like Richard Harris -- who is Dumbledore for me. (Michael Gambon isn't and never was Dumbledore for me.) I hope that the feel as portrayed and felt in the images I've seen continues through the movies. *crosses fingers*

Johnny Depp as Grindelwald? There are some who say a resounding 'no'. I'm not one of them. I think he has the acting chops to pull it off. He's very much the chameleon.

I really do look forward to the movie!

That's probably wher I've seen Jude Law before, thank you Tarma. As for Johnny Jepp as Grindlewald I think that we've seen him only for a few minutes, and can't make a coherent conclusion about his being Grindlewald yet. However, I think he'll do well as Grindlewald in the next film.

Pictures' "FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD."
Pottermore information on the cast: click -- be aware, spoilers!

While wandering through different drool sites for the next movie, I saw this:
Image
Image is of a sign set inside a window of what might be a shop and it is posed so that people walking by can see the sign. The sign is made up to look like the cover of a book. The background colour is dark blue, and the border and the script is gold. It says: "Florish & Blotts and Obscurus Books cordially invite you to the book launch of Newt Scamander's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Follow the writer in his worldwide quest for extraordinary [creatures] Saturday 19th of March - 7 o'clock Flourish & Blotts North Side - Diagon Alley - London

Would *I* go to that book launch? Oh, yes!

I just watched it, and I was not super impressed. I want more. It's interesting to see just how little they're showing of Johnny Depp in any of the promos for the movie though

They’re probably afraid of the backlash. There was so much anger over the anonouncment that Johnny Depp was playing Grindelwald, so they’re probably trying not to raise much attention about it.

I love the small things I’ve seen so far. Dumbledore looks amazing and Newt too. I love the scene where they’re flying on a green/blue creature. It looks so magical.

What impressed me most of that promo is that ... okay a few things impressed me!

I love that Jacob is back and, in that one scene, he is 'heroic'.

What was that water creature (was it a creature or a plant?) that it appeared that Newt (was that Newt?) was riding (was it underwater?) I have to go watch it again! B)

Queenie! :wub:

I think that it is a fine thing that Jude Law is portraying Dumbledore. I wondered, at first, if he could do it -- but the tiny tidbits of information shown so far point to something which works very nicely. I absolutely love the little byplay of Albus Dumbledore and Newt Scamander -- that someone has to deal with Grindelwald and Dumbledore, himself, cannot do it and ... somehow ... Dumbledore conveys the feeling that, if anyone can, it's Newt.

Edit:
So I watched it a few more times. :lol:

That is one of the points where I don't agree with a lot of the critics. I think Jude Law is a very fine actor, and he has great facial expressions (especially in his eyes/eyebrows) which I think is exactly what Dumbledore needs. The trailer even proves that he has a way about speaking, kindly, even jokingly, but still clearly strong. I'm pretty excited for it!
