Fantastic Beasts 3 Featurette Explores the Legacy of Hogwarts

A new featurette for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore tackles the legacy of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry — and what filming at the beloved Harry Potter local means to the cast and crew.

“There are so many memories. There’s a feeling of coming home,” said director David Yates, who marks his seventh Wizarding World film with The Secrets of Dumbledore. “I think what excites me the most is the opportunity to return to a place that we grew to love in the Harry Potter films,” added Jude Law.

Said Jessica Williams, “I grew up reading the books. So, to be apart of beasts — it’s literally like a fantasy.” Dan Fogler added, “Everyone knows Harry Potter. I got to be at Hogwarts for this movie. For me, that was really special.” Law went on to tease “exciting and familiar locations within Hogwarts,” with producer David Heyman teasing the inclusion of things like Quidditch and “significant characters.”

The third entry into the Fantastic Beasts series of Harry Potter prequel movies, The Secrets of Dumbledore is scheduled to hit theaters in the United Kingdom on Friday, April 8 and in the United States on Friday, April 15. Set in the 1930s amid the lead-up to World War II, the film sees a young Albus Dumbledore (Law) enlist a group of witches and wizards in a bid to take down the evil wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen).

Leading the charge in The Secrets of Dumbledore is series protagonist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a magizoologist and the author of the fictional book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which would go on to become required reading for the students of Hogwarts. Newt is joined by his Auror brother Theseus Scamander (Callum Turner), his assistant Bunty (Victoria Yeates) and his muggle friend Jacob Kowalski (Fogler), as well as Yusuf Kama (William Nadylam) — a French wizard of Senegalese descent — and Professor Lally Hicks (Williams) — a teacher at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
