'Fantastic Beasts 2' Open Casting Call Offers Tantalizing Plot Clues

The casting call states that no previous acting experience is required, but eligibility to work in the United Kingdom is a must.

Deciding that this is a pretty fantastic way for kids to dip their toes in the acting world, Pottermore have kicked off the search for a teenage Albus Dumbledore, teenage Gellert Grindelwald, and young incarnations of Newt Scamander and Leta Lestrange.

Dumbledore, who was originally portrayed by Richard Harris in the first two Harry Potter films, followed by Michael Gambon, will be played by Jude Law in the Fantastic Beasts sequel alongside Johnny Depp as Grindelwald who briefly appeared as the character in the first Fantastic Beasts film. Actors between 16 and 18 are able to audition for Gellert Grindewald and Albus Dumbledore.

As always, there *is a href="https://www.pottermore.com/news/open-casting-call-for-young-people-announced-for-fantastic-beasts-and-where-to-find-them-sequel" *here. Pictures is trying to find five young actors for the first sequel (of four) to Fantastic Beasts. With Jude Law entering the fray as Albus Dumbledore, who was only talked about in Fantastic Beasts, it is expected that the franchise will shed light on the historic events referenced in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

J.K.Rowling is very good at running multiple character arcs alongside each other without muddying the waters.

Dumbledore keeps getting younger and younger.

What do you make of this casting call?

The closing date for applications is Tuesday, June 20.

All you need to do is send an email to [email protected] with a recent color photograph, your main telephone number, current address, and date of birth. Actors don't need to have experience, but they must be eligible to work in the United Kingdom and be available between August and November. Anyone below age 18 must ask their parent's permission before applying. The scenes will probably be set during Scamander's years at Hogwarts, where he had a complicated relationship with Lestrange.
