Review: Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (2022)


The Harry Potter franchise ended around ten years ago. However, the Wizarding World is still alive in all of us. It is also still alive on the silver screen. Warner Brothers recently released the third movie in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise. The movie is named Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.

In this film, we see our old friends: Newt Scamander and Jacob Kowaski. In this film, Newt and Jacob are working together again. Albus Dumbledore is a current professor of Hogwarts. He plans to defeat the current most magically dangerous person around… the wizard named Gellert Grindelwald. And those two familiar faces are a part of Dumbledore’s plans.

One of the best things in this movie are all of the things that the audience gets to learn about Albus Dumbeldore. We learn more about why he can not actively go against Gellert Grindelwald. We also discover more about his relationship with Grindelwald. These things in the movie are not explored in the Harry Potter books in detail.

The next great thing about this movie is the new cast of characters in the film. Everyone has his or her own role to play to stop Grindelwald’s plan to take over the Wizarding World. Everyone knows what to do… and they do it with fortitude.

Finally, there are also some funny parts in the movie that will make you smile. These moments are hilarious moments in a somewhat dark film.

There are still two more movies in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise. I can’t wait to see them. We may learn even more about Dumbledore in those movies.

And, of course, it’s always great to see Hogwarts.

In conclusion: I give this movie a 5-star rating. My recommendation is to watch it as soon as you can.

  1. This movie was great. There was a lot of intrigue. I think Jude Law did great as the young Dumbledore. I couldn’t help but wonder how Johnny Depp would have played Grindelwald in this film if he wasn’t replaced.


  2. I’m excited to see the next two movies. These films really sets-up the Wizarding World and explains everything that happened before Voldemort arrived on the scene.
