After the shocking revelation at the end of the second film, fans have been looking forward to Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore which will continue Newt Scamander's wizarding journey in the 20th century decades before the events of the Harry Potter series. Filming for the third installment has finished some time ago and a lot are wondering when we will get to see the first trailer. Now, we finally have the date.

Warner Bros. released a sizzle reel promo celebrating the 20-year span of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter franchise showing clips from the Harry Potter films, the previous two Fantastic Beasts films, the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and footage of the Harry Potter fandom in numerous events. In the end, they showed a quick teaser for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and revealed that the full trailer is coming this Monday, December 13. You can view the sizzle reel promo here:

While the teaser that they released for the upcoming film only ran for around 30 seconds, it did give us the much-awaited first look at Mads Mikkelsen as Gellert Grindlewald after replacing Johnny Depp in the role late last year. It also showed us Newt Scamander, Albus Dumbledore, and the gang in action as Grindlewald's army becomes a looming threat. Of course, we will get to see more of it this Monday when they release the full trailer.


Per the official synopsis, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is set in the 1930s leading up to the Wizarding World's involvement in World War II and "will explore the magical communities in Bhutan, Germany, and China in addition to previously established locations including Brazil, the United States, and United Kingdom. With Grindelwald's power rapidly growing, Albus Dumbledore entrusts Newt Scamander and his friends on a mission that will lead to a clash with Grindelwald's army, and will lead Dumbledore to ponder how long he will stay on the sidelines in the approaching war."

Returning cast members include Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Callum Turner, and Jessica Williams. Mads Mikkelsen joins as Gellert Grindlewald, replacing Johnny Depp who played the role in the last two films. David Yates is also back to direct the film.
