Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore officially releases next week in the U.S. as the followup to 2018’s The Crimes of Grindewald brings in Mads Mikkelsen in the villain role and positions Jude Law in a central position.
The first Fantastic Beasts film garnered positive reactions from fans and critics alike, sporting a healthy 74% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 79% audience score. The second film proved to be slightly more divisive, as audiences were generally less positive on The Crimes of Grindewald.
Now, initial reactions to The Secrets of Dumbledore have been released, teasing a return of form of sorts to the franchise.
The HoloFiles’ Reaction:
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore releases on April 15.
