Making of Fantastic Beasts Audiobook

Whenever a new blockbuster movie comes along, there are always plenty of featurettes that take you behind the scenes and usually an accompanying book that dives into the concept art created during development and pre-production. But the next Wizarding World sequel will take that to a new level.

Audible is teaming up with Pottermore and Warner Bros. Pictures to release an audiobook called Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – Makers, Mysteries and Magic, which will dive into the making of the Harry Potter spin-off sequel due in theaters this fall. And to make the experience that much more immersive, it will feature the voices of the film’s cast. Find out more below. Read More »

fantastic beasts the crimes of grindelwald trailer breakdown

Fall is nearly upon us. That means it’s time for pumpkin spice everything and anticipating a whole new slate of movies hitting theaters, many of which will be heavy hitters during awards season. But when it comes to general audiences, they’re not all that interested in the prestige pictures right now. That might mostly be because they’re not on everyone’s radar yet, but even so, it’s the blockbusters featuring familiar characters and famous rock stars that audiences are most eager to see.

Fandango recently surveyed movigoers in an effort to figure out what the most anticipated fall 2018 movies are this season, and it’s quite the bummer that Halloween and Creed II didn’t crack the top five. Instead, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald came out on top, proving Harry Potter fever is a lot like herpes; once you have it, you can’t get rid of it. Read More »

fantastic beasts dumbledore

One of the reasons Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is so highly anticipated is the prospect of seeing a young, hot Dumbledore played by Jude Law. Well, and the fact that it’s part of a spin-off from the most beloved children’s fantasy series ever. And while we’ve been gifted with a few great shots of Dumbledore lounging in a dapper, tailored suit, one of the most important aspects of Dumbledore’s youth has been largely left out: his sexuality.

In the second film of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, the Wizarding World lore will dive deep into Dumbledore’s backstory and his conflicted relationship with the series’ Big Bad, Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). But it seems like Fantastic Beasts is playing the long game: in Fantastic Beasts 2 Dumbledore and Grindelwald will share no scenes together.
