The new featurette from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald takes a look at Albus Dumbledore and how he became the man we knew him from Harry Potter. It does also cover the time he spent with Gellert Grindelwald before the both went their own ways.
Step back and hear J.K. Rowling, Jude Law and Johnny Depp have to say about this beloved character and what happened a hundred years before we met him as the Headmaster of Hogwarts.
At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
