Dumbledore as a younger man looks less like a wise wizard and more like a banker.
The long hair and ZZ Top-like beard have yet to be grown, and in place of old man Dumbledore’s trademark long robe is a conservative three-piece suit.
The just-released trailer for “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” gives us a first glimpse of Jude Law as he takes his turn as the beloved Harry Potter character Albus Dumbledore. Richard Harris portrayed Hogwarts’ headmaster in the first two “Harry Potter” films, and Michael Gambon took over for the remaining five installments following Harris’ death in 2002.
The trailer teases to a possible showdown between Dumbledore’s former student Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and Gellert Grindelwald (a blonde Johnny Depp) in Paris.
“I can’t move against Grindelwald. It has to be you,” Dumbledore instructs Scamander.
