19th: New SoD Film Summary

Framestore, the vfx company who have worked on all three Fantastic Beasts films so far, have posted a very interesting new summary for Secrets of Dumbledore:

Framestore journeyed into the Wizarding World with director David Yates once again to make magic for the latest adventures of magizoologist Newt Scamander. The third film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, The Secrets of Dumbledore continues from the cliffhanger ending of The Crimes of Grindelwald, in which Credence Barebone was told his true identity. This next installment takes Newt and Co. back to school, as they walk the hallowed halls of Hogwarts in an attempt to unravel the mystery that ties the Grindelwald and Dumbledore families.

“…in an attempt to unravel the mystery that ties the Grindelwald and Dumbledore families.”

Very interesting indeed!

20th: UK Official Website Updated

The official Fantastic Beasts UK website has at last been updated to reflect the upcoming Secrets of Dumbledore film. Up until now it was still marketing towards Crimes of Grindelwald.

Does this mean marketing for the third film is to begin soon? Fingers crossed!
