Jude Law joins Fan­tas­tic Beasts

Toronto Star - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Jude Law will play young Al­bus Dum­ble­dore in the next Fan­tas­tic Beasts in­stal­ment.

The wizard was played by two ac­tors in the Harry Pot­ter films, be­gin­ning with Richard Har­ris. Af­ter his death in 2002, Michael Gam­bon in­her­ited the role.

J.K. Rowl­ing, who has said Dum­ble­dore is gay, has pre­vi­ously teased that the five-part pre­quel fran­chise of Fan­tas­tic Beasts will ex­plore a more “trou­bled” time in Dum­ble­dore’s life. The au­thor said, “We’ll see him at that for­ma­tive pe­riod of his life. As far as his sex­u­al­ity is con­cerned, watch this space.”

Pro­duc­tion on the next Fan­tas­tic Beasts film is to be­gin this sum­mer.
