A few months ago the #WizardingWorld was thrilled to learn that the talented actor, #JudeLaw, will be joining the star-spangled cast of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them as none other as the great #AlbusDumbledore (albeit a few decades younger then #RichardHarris and #MichaelGambon's Dumbledore) But it seems Warner Bros aren't finished with their casting just yet!
Yes you read right- Fantastic Beasts 2 is actually looking for 5 more talented inidnvudauls to join their cast to play other then some most important characters in the wizarding history. An open casting call has been put forward by the studio for actors to play teenage versions of #NewtScamander, #LetaLestrange, #GellertGrindelwald, Albus Dumbledore, and a new, mysterious character called Sebastian. Since #FantasticBeasts phenomenal release last year fans have been yearning to return to the magical school of #Hogwarts and JK #Rowling, obviously, didn't let us down. Also with the casting of a teenage Grindwald could we also be paying #Durmstrang Institute a visit?
Not only are the characters being cast as teenagers, similar to the original Harry Potter casting individuals the actual age of the characters are being sought out, specifically those aged 13-16 for Newt, Sebastian and Leta and aged 16-18 to play Grindelwald and Dumbledore. A little magical, teen drama is surely in the air but this casting also gives a little indication as to what to expect from the upcoming sequel.
The casting also suggests that some of the questions concerning Newt's (#EddieRedmayne) mysterious past, especially those orbiting around the mysterious Leta (#ZoeKravitz) might finally be answered. Not only that, we may also catch a glimpse of relationship between the aspiring wizards, Dumbeldore and Grindwald, before they left their respective marks on wizaridng history. The mysterious Sebastian also give us an indication of what to expect. We all know that although Newt obviously loves Hogwarts but his time there wasn't really smooth sailing and could Sebastian be the reason for this? Could he be Newt's #Ron or his #Draco? Only time will tell.
With the film scheduled to be released November 18, 2018 fans still have quite some time to wait and the questions keep on piling. However, with the eventual casting of these five teenage wizards we might get just a tiniest hint of what to expect from what is surely to be an amazing film.
